Col. Tom Parker received this letter in 1953 and asked
his valet to make copies to send along with services rendered. One week
later he discovered Elvis Presley and Clive Davis. A record company executive,
Ron Alexenberg, received the chain and lost it among his bills. Five days
later hi office was dismantled. He found the chain letter several years later
while forming his own record label. he sent out fifty copies and as a result
every release his company had went gold. Larry Gibb received this letter
back in 1973. At this time the Bee Gees had broken up. After sending out
thirty copies, Barry reunited with his brothers for the first time in two
years and recorded the Bee Gees hit, "Jive Talkin". Rita Coolidge received
this letter two weeks before "Anytime, Anywhere" was released. She followed
the instructions to a "T" and this album launched her multi-million dollar
career. Jay Craydon, a studio musician, received this letter last year and
as a result became a staff record producer at RSO Records. Robert Stigwood
received this letter and put it out with the garbage...the result (?) "Sgt.
Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" was a flop at the box office. You figure
it out!! Jimmy Record apologizes for the banality and has no idea whether
this is for real, and is too chicken to break the chain.
FOR NO REASON SHOULD THIS CHAIN BE BROKEN ! ! ! !
