Its a funny story however I think Tom Jones' memory isn't what it once was
Rock n' roll king ELVIS PRESLEY was once so keen to share his song ideas with pal TOM JONES, he joined him in the bathroom as the Welsh crooner was taking a shower.
The late legend was a big fan of Jones' and they'd often hang out together when on tour in the same city.
But one occasion, in Las Vegas, left Jones feeling a little embarrassed.
He tells U.K. chatshow host Graham Norton, "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. 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!"
That story really sounds really strange. I find it hard to believe! Maybe he was "wishing" that Elvis was in the shower with him!
I've heard Jones tell this story a few times but he never says which song it was.
"Don't tamper with the property of the U.S. Male"
And I find it hard to believe Jones would make up such a story.
They hung out together a lot; it is entirely plausible.
Getlo - cute'n'cuddly
I don't believe it
Jones would not be showering in Elvis' suite
and Elvis would hardly barge into someone else's room
i don't see why Tom would make this up.
I never looked for trouble but I never ran.
well some of you peeps can laugh all u want..i believe this story is true...i believe tom jones
He never said Elvis was in the shower...Elvis just stood over top and sang into the shower.
I had eared this story too & Tom Jones said the song was "With This Hands" (a Jones' classic recording).
Why do some people find this so hard to believe?
Elvis and Tom were good mates and spent a lot of time together.
Maybe Elvis did like barging into other peoples rooms. Maybe he didn't.How would we know?
Polk A Little Sock Salad !
Remember, that at this period of time Elvis took drugs heavily which made him behave strange sometimes. So I totally believe this story and I already heard it before. Pretty surreal though...
Poke a little sock salad...
i saw this on t.v ands i find it bit hard to beleive
Elvis was pretty unconventional in a lot of ways. After I read that he rummaged through President Nixon's desk drawer for things for the wives, I can believe that he was hanging over Tom's shower stall singing.
