Elvis, Usually Surrounded By Girls, Is Now Encircled By Controversy

Alan Smith, New Musical Express, 22 July 1966

SOME Of Elvis' staunchest British fans want to boil me in oil again. Another suggests I lower myself into a spin-dryer and turn it on. Yet another tells me to shut my mouth and not to be so bad mannered. And there are even those who simply want me kicked off the staff of the NME so that "someone who really loves Elvis" can review his films in the future (writes Alan Smith).
