'I met Elvis when I was in Laugh-In ... He was on the set because we used to rehears in the studio ant NBC ...' 'When I met him it was quite amazing. I can even remember what I was wearing: a red knit 70s jumpsuit ...'

'And I didn't know what to think, I thought it was a compliment .... But my god, 'I've never met a guy with so much charisma in my life'. 'He was the guy that .. 'kick started my hormones ...' ...
'My dad was a classical musician, and we used to listen to Beethoven and Bach and Vivaldi, and I used to say, 'Daddy, I will never like rock music'. But Elvis Presley's Don't Be Cruel took me right into puberty'.
