Brand Bonds With Perry's Dad Over Elvis And Drugs
Russell Brand is convinced he'll enjoy a close relationship with his future father-in-law - because they share a love of Elvis Presley.
The British funnyman is due to wed pop star Katy Perry in India on Saturday (23Oct10), but he insists he isn't nervous about marrying a woman whose parents are both Evangelical pastors.
And Brand is adamant Perry's father Keith Hudson is not disgusted by his wildman past - because Hudson took mindbending hallucinogenic drugs himself in the 1960s and is an Elvis fan.
Brand tells U.K. TV show This Morning, "As it turned out, her dad is really, really lovely. He is more on the rocker/biker side of preaching. He likes Elvis. He used to take acid. There are all sorts of things I can connect to him on - acid and Elvis!"
