Elvis Presley aficionado Trevor Simpson was thrilled to meet The King’s wife Priscilla in Manchester recently.
Trevor, a former professional football referee who lives in Ripponden, has contributed to magazines like Goldmine, Elvis the Man and his Music and the Graceland approved bi-monthly Essential Elvis.
He is also a published book author, with his 2007 Small Town Saturday Night charting the evolution of music in Halifax.
In 2007 Trevor began a huge undertaking with the first of what will eventually be a trilogy of books charting Elvis’s impact on the British and worldwide music scene.
The result was Elvis: The Best of British - The HMV Years, a huge tome that was sold all over the world.
