London, Nov 23 (ANI): The late King of Rock ‘n’ Roll Elvis Presley is said to have once shocked his pal Welsh singer Tom Jones when he joined him in the shower to make him listen to a song. Presley was a big fan of Jones” and they would always hang out together when on tour in the same city, however when they were in Las Vegas, the King did something that left Jones feeling a little embarrassed.
“When we played Vegas together, when he”d finish his shows and I”d still be there, he”d come to my shows. He”d always be there,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling U.K. chatshow host Graham Norton.
“Sometimes he”d walk on the stage. The strangest thing is I”d be in the middle of a song and then suddenly everyone would go ”ahhh”, and I”d be thinking, what’’s happened?!
“Then one night, I”ve come off stage and Elvis is in the dressing room. He said, ‘Tom, I”ve got a song for you’ and I said, ‘Ok great, but I gotta get in the shower’, I”ve perspired so much.
“So I”m in the shower, and the water’’s coming down and then I hear (Elvis singing). I was thinking I”m going bloody mad here, because I can hear Elvis Presley singing in the shower! Then I opened my eyes and he’’s leaning over the door!” he added.
