Presley Banned Hits From Graceland
Late rock 'n' roll star Elvis Presley hated listening to his own hits and banned his "c**p" repertoire from ever being played inside his infamous Graceland, Tennessee home. The King was adamant work and home life be kept separate, and once flew into a rage when an unwitting visitor tried playing ALL SHOOK UP at a house party. He stormed, "Who's the wise guy that put that goddamn music on? Get that c**p off!" Former pal JERRY SCHILLING recalls in new book ME AND A GUY NAMED ELVIS, "There was no doubt he was really angry. "He was proud of his work, but it was just that - his work. He lived with his music outside of the house - he didn't need to hear it while he was trying to relax in his own basement."
