1976: The King and the Killer. On this day, Jerry Lee Lewis (nicknamed “the Killer”) decides to pay a visit to Elvis Presley (nicknamed “The King”). Jerry Lee’s first mistake is to show up at Graceland before dawn. He gets turned away. Elvis calls and invites Lewis to come back. Jerry Lee returns later in the morning but unfortunately, the security guard hasn’t got the word from Elvis. So once again, Jerry Lee is refused entrance.
Now thoroughly angry, Jerry Lee produces a gun and proclaims that he’s there to kill Presley. He is quickly arrested, but is later released when he convinces authorities he was only joking. Great balls of fire!
