    Elvis and Evel Knievel

    Did Evel ever meet Elvis? He says in numerous interviews he attended shows and whent backstage. I take most of what this guy says with a pinch of salt tho. I havent read anything in any books about them meeting and never seen any photos.

    What do you guys think?

    I can't speculate on this particular (possible) meeting but I know one thing for sure: Elvis did meet a hell of a lot more people than we know of.

    I remember vaguely about hearing about the 2 of them meeting (probably read it in a book somewhere,I'll have to look it up).
    I have to agree with Leroy on this,Elvis met a lot of famous people while he was performing in Las Vegas sometimes even inviting them to his hotel room.
    It's a pity that this isn't more documented in most Elvis books.


    Adios !

    He is a guy that became famous by doing crazy stunts like jumping the grand canyon and stuff. Well, I dont think he did that one did he? I dont guess it possible is it? But yeah, stuff like that.

    No,they stoped him from jumping the Grand canyon.I think it was Snake river Canyon I believe it was called that he ended up jumping..It was a rocket type of machine he used though.

    Karen Carpenter is one I recently learnt of!

    Now they really could have made sweet, sweet music together.

    I must agree, LeighAnne and Cryo.

    Perhaps surprisingly, she was apparently a bit rude when she met Elvis. Marty Lacker said that she handed something to Elvis for him to sign and told him to sign it.

    But what an angelic voice she had!
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    No doubt! She had a voice that was simply gorgeous.

    However, I was alluding to a bit more than conventional music in my comment - if you see what I mean... Elvis was supposedly making (or about to make) some kind of move on Karen and the friend she was with saw the danger signs, so to speak, and got her out of there. Oh, Elvis!
