On this date in 1977, the world lost an icon, and I lost a friend. Most people don't know it, but Elvis and I were close. In his early years (before the drugs) we did everything together, and he always insisted on wearing that gold suit. Here is a photo tribute to "the King" and my friend, Elvis Presley.
Elvis loved hanging with me & my school friends
One of our favorite things was just making music downstairs in the studio. We co-wrote many of his hits down there, but I wasn't interested in the credit...just the friendship.
I miss you, buddy.
