says he was once left shocked when he found Elvis' gun in his dressing room lavatory. The veteran singer struck up a close friendship with Elvis and they would often spend time together when they were in the same city on tour. But on one occasion, after Jones appeared at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, he was stunned to find a silver-plated Colt .45 automatic pistol on his toilet cistern after Presley had used the bathroom. Jones tried to discreetly hand it back, only to see Presley shrug off the incident.
He says, 'I wrapped it up in this towel, took it out and said, very quietly, 'Er, Elvis, you left your gun in the toilet'. And Elvis just goes: 'Aw s**t man, ma .45', and stuck it in his belt'.
'I was trying to be very discreet about the whole thing, but he couldn't have cared less'.
