I was brought up listening to Elvis & Tom Jones. I don't really remember when Elvis died, I just know both my Mom & Dad were upset. Around that time I used to sit & watch all the Elvis movies with my Dad (Viva Las Vegas is still my favourite) I kind of remember saying to my Dad (after we had watched Love Me Tender) I wanted to do something for Elvis....my Mom suggested I sent him my dummy (pacifier) ....so that's what I did, I sent Elvis my dummy when I was 3
