Elvis Has Left the Building, But He's Still Behind Every Door

I recall reading somewhere long ago that Elvis felt the Jordanairres were a bit off one night. During a song he turned to them and said to them "I coulda had the Supremes you know".  I don't know if that's a true story or apocryphal but either way, it's pretty funny.  Everyone should get to Graceland at least once. 

Nice interview Henry...probably quite an interesting book.  Elvis was quite a gospel fan...and the influence was evident in his stage show and recorded music.
