Tom Jones : I went to Paramount studios in Hollywood

Tom Jones Meets Elvis Presley

Elvis and Tom Jones at GracelandWhen Tom Jones was teenager, his idol was Elvis Presley. In early 1965, Jones rocketed to popularity with the huge hit 'It's Not Unusual'. Later that year, they met at the Paramount stage, where Elvis was filming Paradise Hawaiian Style. After that, they became good friends, spending more and more time together in Las Vegas.

Tom Jones I went to Paramount studios in Hollywood to talk about a song for a movie, and they said 'Elvis is here today filming and he would like to meet you'. So I though, my God, I didn't know that he knew that I existed, because I had three singles out and one album at the time. And that was 'It's Not Unusual', 'What's New Pussycat' and a ballad called 'With These Hands'.

When I go on the set where Elvis was filming, he walked towards me and singing 'With These Hands', which was my record. I couldn't believe it. It was like a dream, that Elvis Presley was singing my song, you know, to me!

We had a picture taken, and he said to me, 'How the hell do you sing like that'? And I said, 'Well, you are partly to blame, you know, listening to your records in the 50s'.

He said, 'What's it like in Wales then? You come from Wales?' I said 'Yeah'. And he said, 'Do all people sing like that in Wales?' I said, 'Well, not exactly', but I said, 'Welsh people have strong voices, that is where I get my strength from. My volume is where I come from'. But, I said, 'I was influenced more by American music than I was Welsh traditional music'. So I said, 'It's a combination. I have a Welsh voice, but because of American music influencing me so much, I am sounding like I do'. Because they thought I was black, you know.

When they first started playing my records in America, they thought I was black. And so did Elvis Presley. He said, 'When I heard 'What's New Pussycat', I thought it was a black fella singing it'. Which was strange for him to say because they thought he was black when he started.

We became friends from that day on, and that was in 1965. We were friends until just before he died. We worked Vegas a lot together, at the same time. He came to see me at The Flamingo in '68, because he said he wanted to make a comeback, live, because he hadn't sung live for years.

Elvis wanted to sing in Las Vegas, so he felt that I was the closest thing to him; I had a similar approach. My stage presence, he felt, was very similar to his. So he said to me, 'You were very successful in Vegas, I want to watch you, I want to see what you do'...  I think Elvis was the only person I've spoken to that felt the same way about music as myself, as far as versatility is concerned. Because he loved ballads as well as Rock 'n' Roll and Gospel,  we would sit in the suite and talk about music… and we would sing, mostly jam…' recalls, Tom Jones

Tom Jones, Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley Graceland

 August 1974, Elvis gave a big introduction to Tom Jones, who was catching one of his shows: 'There's somebody in the audience I'd like you meet. To me ... he's my favorite singer. He's one of the greatest performers I've ever seen, and the greatest voice, Tom Jones. There he is. He's too much. Tom, you open at Caesars palace tomorrow night, right? Folks, if you get the chance, go over and see him. Elvis always came to see my show  and I'd  go to see his. It's a mutual respect'.
