This was a return visit for Richard who came to Graceland in the '60s as a guest of Elvis' father, Vernon Presley. Richard was very excited to be back at the home of the King of Rock 'n' Roll and said, 'Elvis is the reason I became a rock singer. If he hadn't been around, I don't think there would've been a Cliff Richard either'.
One very lucky group of Graceland guests, who happened to be from the UK, had a very special moment when, just before they entered the mansion for their tour, Cliff Richard exited.
Their mouths dropped open and one guest said, 'CLIFF RICHARD ... What are YOU doing here?' Richard responded with a smile, 'You never know who you are going to see at Graceland!'
