Liza also reminisced about the good old days, including the time when she met late singer Elvis Presley. She bumped into him while watching a show in Los Angeles and he invited her and some pals back to his hotel room. They expected a wild party, and were amazed by what actually happened.

“A group of us, including Alice Cooper, Chubby Checker and Linda Lovelace were there and Elvis disappeared,” she explained. “Then suddenly the door flies open and he's there in full [karate] dress shouting, 'Hi-Ya,' and kicking.”

Sounds like Elvis to me!!!!!!!!!

Never heard of that one before! L.A.? Could that be one of the Inglewood shows in '70? or one of the '74 ones, hmmm... Interesting to notice that it was also during the '74 shows that the meeting with Led Zeppeling happened after a show, also at Elvis hotel room.

Now, Alice Cooper, Chubby Checker, Minelli and Elvis together at the same hotel room party? Invited by Elvis? Never heard of Alice Cooper meeting Elvis, although he is a declared fan. Anyway, if its true... crazy Elvis, what a party!

Can you tell us the source of this Lize Minnelli story?

You have got to wonder the veracity of the story, however if true I just love it.

Graham Norton interviewed her and she told him this story:

I saw the Graham Norton show last night on BB1 where she told the story. Very funny. Elvis partying with Alice Cooper and Linda Lovelace. Very Elvis.

Anyway she said he was watching her show backstage then they went back to his SUITE which was enormous. Now that sounds like Vegas not LA. Anyone?

She also ended by saying that he really was a lovely man.

If they repeat the show watch it.

Alice Cooper has told the same story many times. Most recently on the Joy Behar show a couple of weeks ago.

ITs funny how some film stars/rock stars in the 60s-downplayed Elvis-yet when they met him it was a huge occasion for them-one they are proud to talk about.

I think Linda Lovelace could be Linda Thompson

Linda Lovelace was a pornstar, famous because of the movie "Deep Throat". During the meeting she wanted her picture taken with Elvis, but he politely refused.

He was wise-the press would have had a field day with a photo of Lovelace and Elvis, and the Colonel may have had a stroke.:lol:

I knew who Linda Lovelace was too many fake stories flying around when the subject is Elvis.
