WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF ELVIS?
Well, I was in the lobby talking to some of the guys and a few of the people who
were hanging around and the door burst open and there was this vision. It was the middle of July in
Memphis and it was very humid, just sweltering. He
had on this black cape with a high collar and a red satin lining and I
said "dressed a little like Dracula aren't we?" so you see, we
both shared a sense of humor that was very much like the other. We
just hit it off immediately because we grew up in Memphis. We had the
same religious beliefs. The same love for our family, devotion to mother
and father. We had the same sense of loyalty, we enjoyed the same cuisine because we were both
IT SOUNDS LIKE IT WAS ALMOST INEVITABLE?
Oh, it was. We shared a real kinship. I mean, we became kindred souls.
So much so that he said, "where have you been?" and I said "Growing up!"
ELVIS HAD JUST SPLIT FROM PRISCILLA WHEN YOU TWO FIRST MET RIGHT?
It's funny because when we met at the Memphian Theatre, he was
telling me that he'd just separated.
We met on July 6th and he had been separated since the
beginning of January.
YOU MET LISA MARIE PRETTY SOON AS YOU BEGAN DATING. DID SHE ACCEPT YOU AS HER FATHER'S NEW PARTNER?
She was a wonderful little girl. She was very embracing and a little shy but I've always
loved children and we got on really well. The first time I ever saw her was at the Monovale house
and I was out by the pool. She kind of timidly came around and said hi. We started talking and we became really close.
I loved being with her. You know, Elvis had a real childlike spirit and I have too.
I like to do childlike things and to get down
to a child's level. She and I became very close.
I BELIEVE IT WAS LISA WHO TOLD YOU OF ELVIS' DEATH?
She called me. She was only 9-years old but she had the presence of
mind to call me and tell me what had happened.
WAS IT REALLY A SHOCK TO YOU OR DID YOU SEE COMING?
You know, even if someone that you know is on a destructive path,
even when they finally pass away, it's always shocking. Yes, it was a shock.
