The Female Elvis had just two brief encounters with the Male Elvis. 'I said hello to him backstage at a show in Danville, Virginia,' she remembered later (that would have been on September 20, 1955). 'Later, I ran into him in New York at RCA's studio. He said, 'How's it goin''' I said, 'Fine, how about you'' He said, 'It's rough!'' Rougher than she ever knew.
