Elvis : 'The thing I keep up with most is professional football'. When he wasn't on stage, in a studio or on the big screen, there's a good chance you could find Elvis Presley playing football. Elvis loved other sports, too, like karate and racquetball. But Elvis always found time for a quick game, and if he couldn't play it himself, he watched his favorite teams compete on TV. He often watched three Football games at once in the TV room at Graceland where he had installed three TV sets.

On August 27, 1965, Elvis Presley met The Beatles at his California home. One memorable evening, the Colonel
arranged for Elvis to meet four famous people. But I believe it was the Beatles who were eager to meet Elvis, not the other way around. In fact, when John, Paul, Ringo and George walked in, Elvis was relaxing on the couch, looking at TV without the sound. He barely bothered to get up. Naturally he was curious about the Beatles. He respected them. Mostly he respected the way they had achieved their artistic freedom. He saw how they did whatever they liked to do. There are no photos from that historic meeting between the King of Rock 'n' Roll and The Fab Four, but Priscilla Presley recalls that evening ...
was the morning DJ at WHBQ in Memphis. The evening DJ, Dewey Phillips
, was known for playing what was then called 'race music', and it was one evening that a record brought in by Sam Phillips
featuring an artist by the name of Elvis Presley was played. 'You could tell that something exciting was going on when the record was played', says Wink. Ironically, Wink's future wife Sandy had dated Elvis for six years.

Listen to Goldie Hawn
Elvis was the love of my life. I met him in the summer of '55, when he was just a regional star. I was 17 and he was 20. He had been in my hometown of Biloxi, Mississippi, several times before, and people said, 'You need to see him', and I went on this one night. I thought he was the most gorgeous thing: big, dreamy eyes. Girls were screaming over him, and I'm just not that kind. I was passing by him, not even looking at him, and he reached through the crowd and grabbed my arm. He said, 'Where are you going?'

Well it seems it is on for real, a Beverly Hills auction house began accepting bids Friday for Elvis Presley's former personal planes, the Lisa Marie
and Hound Dog II
. The auction appeared to dump cold water on a social media-fuelled campaign pleading with Graceland
operators to keep the planes on display, as they've been for 30 years. Graceland's new owners stirred controversy last April by moving to end a joint venture with the planes' owners, a Tennessee-based group called OKC Partnership. Graceland notified OKC that the planes had to be removed from Graceland on or shortly after April 26, 2015. AND words are flying between fans and EPE, and Priscilla has again responded to the criticism.

Great voices don't always make beautiful music together - because collaborations don't just require exceptional pipes, they also demand vocal harmony and good chemistry. So, does 'Love Me Tender', Barbra Streisand's duet with Elvis Presley, make the grade?
