Referring to Elvis's live performance of Are You Lonesome Tonight, Priscilla says: 'I went right to the first time I sat in the theatre looking up at him singing it and I thought 'I can't believe this person who I never thought I'd meet is singing this song to me'. 'I'm really a little bit shy about sharing some of those moments that I had with him. There's a part of me that savours things that were just him and myself'.

Sir Cliff Richard admits: 'It wasn't just that I wanted to be like Elvis, I wanted to wake up and find I was Elvis'. Global superstar Michael Bublé said: 'God kissed his throat, truly'. Musical theatre star Michael Ball said: 'No one makes a party rock like Elvis'.
