Los Angeles, March 3 (IANS) Legendary singer Tom Jones thinks “great man” Elvis Presley “wouldn’t be too sure” about his relationship with the late rock ‘n’ roll star’s ex-wife Priscilla Presley.
The “She’s a lady” hitmaker has grown close to Priscilla since his wife Linda died of cancer last year, and while addressing rumours that they are dating, Jones says he is unsure how Elvis would feel about them having dinner and hanging out together, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I really don’t know how Elvis would feel about us having dinner together — he probably wouldn’t be too sure,” the 76-year-old told The Sun newspaper.
“But Elvis was a great man. It’s nice to know that Priscilla and I are still in touch after all this time,” he added.
Jones also revealed that the two bonded over his song “Elvis Presley blues” from his 2005 album “Long Lost Suitcase”, but that they don’t spend much time talking about music.
“I did a song on my last album, and she liked it because she said it was a beautiful tribute to Elvis and she enjoyed it. Musically, that’s about as much as we talk about. But she’s been a friend of mine since 1968 when I first met her with Elvis,” he said.
“We were friends and Elvis passed away of course. But you know, we’ve kept in touch. We’ve been in each other’s lives for years and she is one of a bunch of people that I know in Los Angeles and we do hang out,” Jones added.
