I was only 14 when I first met Elvis and my father was not happy. But no one in the family expected things to turn out the way they did. A married couple with two children who were friends with Elvis took me to meet him on that first occasion and I couldn't not go, as it was an amazing opportunity. It was the equivalent of a 14-year-old today being given the chance to meet Justin Bieber. The second time I met him, Elvis played the piano and we listened to records and it was all really, really innocent. When he invited me back again my father said, "Why does he want to see you?"
At that point, Elvis and his father came round for a very official meeting with my father about the situation.
