"A Day in the life"
In 1965 things continued pretty much in the same vein as 1964. The usual annual quota of three movies released was maintained at a cheaper and quicker rate which in turn meant that most of the musical output was either made up of poor quality soundtracks or re-cycled older recordings. Elvis failed to hit the top of the American pop charts which was mostly dominated by the Beatles, although, he did have a number one in the UK at Easter with a five year old gospel song "Crying in the Chapel". Elvis deep down wasn't happy with the way his career was going, but the Colonel kept the money rolling in for himself and his client. During the year Elvis played host to Peter Noone, lead singer from the British pop group, "Herman's Hermits" and later he had a summit meeting at home in California with the Fab Four. Elvis also met welsh male vocalist Tom Jones in Hollywood. Sadly in October, one of the original 'Blue Moon Boys' Bill Black, died in hospital in Memphis from a brain tumour.
