Presley Stunned Jones With Shower Song

Rock n' roll king ELVIS PRESLEY was once so keen to share his song ideas with pal TOM JONES, he joined him in the bathroom as the Welsh crooner was taking a shower.
The late legend was a big fan of Jones' and they'd often hang out together when on tour in the same city.
But one occasion, in Las Vegas, left Jones feeling a little embarrassed.
He tells U.K. chatshow host Graham Norton, "When we played Vegas together, when he'd finish his shows and I'd still be there, he'd come to my shows. He'd always be there. Sometimes he'd walk on the stage. The strangest thing is I'd be in the middle of a song and then suddenly everyone would go 'ahhh', and I'd be thinking, what's happened?!
"Then one night, I've come off stage and Elvis is in the dressing room. He said, 'Tom, I've got a song for you' and I said, 'Ok great, but I gotta get in the shower', I've perspired so much. So I'm in the shower, and the water's coming down and then I hear (Elvis singing). I was thinking I'm going bloody mad here, because I can hear Elvis Presley singing in the shower! Then I opened my eyes and he's leaning over the door!"
