Proof that the Tommy Steele story of Elvis' 1959 visit to London was true:

The reason he wasn't recognised was that he didn't get out of the car !

Why would you go all the way to London, And not get out of the car.

Well, he was famous & the London visit was top secret.

He'd have been recognised, mobbed & end up in the headlines next day !

Which is why he never went anywhere in Paris when he visited there....oh. wait a minute, he did. Which is why he hid away in Prestwick when he.....oh, wait a minute.....Still, he always hid himself away in Germany......and Hawaii, and America, and Canada.

Old Tommy Steele must have had a bang on the head.

All the other places you mention were visited by Elvis quite openly.

The London visit was a well-kept secret !

Tommy Steele did a great job in keeping the whole thing under wraps at the time !

Odd that he's the only one who knew about it !

Very odd. As I said, old Tommy must have had a bang on the head, and become delirious.

The latest Vintage Rock has an article about a new Tommy Steele biog. The interview with the biographer Sebastian Lassandro, mentions El’s 1958 (wasn’t this previously 1959?) visit to London “will, I feel, forever be a closely guarded secret.” He then goes on to say they certainly met in 1971 when Tommy was performing at Caesars Palace. They apparently got through 10 Cokes and 4 hamburgers talking about Roy Orbison and agreed that he was the best rock singer in the world.

What I want to know is why hasn’t Tom Jones told us about this meeting?

It's simple.

Tom Jones
was in the shower in 1971.

Tommy Steele approached him & told him all about the London meeting with Elvis in 1958/9.

Tom Jones [with soap in his eyes] mistakenly recalls this as being Elvis talking.

It's the sort of error anyone could make...
