Video: Interview : Dame Shirley Bassey talks about Elvis PresleyWelsh star Dame Shirley Bassey still gets 'goose bumps' when she recalls her first meeting with Elvis Presley. In this video from the Graham Norton Show in 2003 she tells of the time she visited Elvis while passing through Las Vegas and was shocked when, in a fit of creativity, Elvis undid her buttoned outfit and got busy with the nearest pen. She says, 'I went to see him in Las Vegas and I had one of those jumpsuits on'. 'He unbuttoned it and started doodling on my skin. I still get goose bumps talking about it'. 'When I looked in the mirror, there were all these crazy drawings on me'. Dame Shirley guesses incorrectly it was '25 years ago', but she also makes it clear enough that we can say it was the early 1970s and most probably 1970.
