During an impromptu concert in Memphis hall in late summer of 1956, Elvis met a 13 year old boy named Robert Turner. Robert was the gopher for the entertainers; Elvis took a liking to him and asked the boy to join him for dinner after the show.
After driving all over town, Elvis couldn't find anything open other than a bowling alley. He and Robert went inside,sat down at the counter and pigged out on cheeseburgers, fries and colas. While they were eating, they saw a drunken man stumble to the jukebox. He selected one of Elvis' songs and tried to wiggle and snap his fingers to the beat. He attempted to dance, lost his balance and fell when he tried to pivot on one leg. The intoxicated man passed Elvis as he finally staggered back to his seat. In a slurred voice, he said," Man, that guy can sure sing!" Elvis smiled at him and replied,"Yeah, I like him too! "

Sounds like him, he loved to "pass" as he put it, not be recognized so he could just be one of "them".... I guessed that "them" meant regular guys etc:..

Great story, there has got to be a million such stories out there, I hope someday they will all come to light before everyone who lived during his time are gone-or at least, they tell someone else who can bring it out eventually. What a book that would be! Like a library of it's own! wjh
