JOHN Lennon and ELVIS Presley
"Elvis was religion to me" John Lennon
With Elvis nor John Lennon alive to dispute these latest allegations what is the truth?
When John Lennon (Beatles) Met Elvis

Elvis and Beatles Elvis Meets the Beatles
John Lennon on Elvis
"Before Elvis there was nothing"


No one laughed more loudly than the King himself when the Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein, boasted 'My boys are going to be bigger than Elvis Presley'. It was the early sixties, and Presley, a living legend, appeared unassailable. Yet, in 1964, John Lennon, Paul, George and Ringo suddenly topped the American charts - and Beatlemania rolled the King in the greatest rock coup of all time.

Beatles- Elvis Chris Hutchins, a music journalist in his early twenties, was at the eye of the hurricane as the Beatles swept all before them. No other writer grew as close to the Fab Four from Liverpool as they conquered the world.

As America turned to the Beatles in a big way during their 1965 tour, Chris Hutchins used his extensive network of connections to mastermind the greatest rock summit meeting ever! A rendezvous between the King and the pretenders who were seizing his throne. With co-author Peter Thompson, Hutchins draws on his own exclusive sources and unpublished personal archives, as well as FBI files and explosive dossiers from the District Attorney's investigators in Memphis, to probe into the greatest rock story never told - one in which the lives of Elvis Presley and the Beatles became dramatically entwined. They reveal the passions and the power play, the corruption and the conspiracies, the vendettas and the vanity behind pop-culture's greatest phenomena.

Chris Hutchins book  "Elvis Met the Beatles" revised recollection of the Beatles, Elvis Presley, August 27, 1965 meeting is a 180-degree turnabout from any previously recorded data of this historical event.

John Lennon - Elvis PresleyAfter much research I can find no mention of Chris Hutchins (by name) unless he was the British pop journalist that made a fleetingly referred to by Lennon biographer, Ray Connolly.

I hereby challenge Mr. H to prove his outlandish claims, as in-depth research reveals otherwise, giving Brian Epstein and John Lennon credit for arranging the royal 1965 rendezvous.

It seems the passage of 30 years has somewhat distorted Mr. Hutchins memory (not to mention the facts) that had led to docking the truth with elaborate accusation in order to make a buck.

By wantonly dipping his pen into the endless inkwell of posthumous Elvis tabloid reporting Mr. Hutchins (like so many others) has sold-out for a handout.

With neither, Elvis Presley nor John Lennon alive to dispute these latest allegations, Hutchins can safely pen his poison without fear of being sued; however, he cannot erase the truth.

From the beginning, throughout his lifetime and until the end, John Lennon frequently cited the King as his idol. Naming Elvis on countless occasions as his mentor, as far back as 1963 with statements such as, I always wanted to be thistough James Dean type, but Elvis was bigger than religion in my life.

When I heard Heartbreak Hotel it was so great I couldn't speak, I didn't want to say anything against Elvis, not even in my mind.

Although by 1965 Elvis had lost his appeal with the 60's hippie generation while resting on his laurels by starring in a series of asinine movies and his recorded output reduced to soundtrack albums when the Beatles arrived in the USA, without skipping a beat when asked what the Fab Four liked about America John Lennon retorted, "Elvis!"

According to Albert Goldman's 1981 biography, ELVIS the meeting was judged by all as a huge success. Goldman, who has gone down in history as the most infamous Elvis basher went on to dedicate a full page to Lennon's recollections of the advents citing George Harrison as his source not Chris Hutchins.  John Lennon spoke up in that marvelously candid style of his clarified the Beatles intentions regarding their meeting with Elvis. There's only one person in the United States that we have ever wanted to meet - not that he wanted to meet us! And we met him last night. We can't tell you how we felt. We just idolized him.
