JOHN WILKINSON to visit the UK

Thu Jun 30, 2005 4:15 pm

John Wilkinson, Elvis' friend and rhythm guitarist (1969-77) will be a special guest speaker at a huge event staged by Essential Elvis, the UK's brightest Elvis magazine. The event, to be held on the South coast, near Brighton, will take place on Sunday 28th August - a bank holiday week-end.
In addition to an interview with John, there will be a meet-and-greet, a massive memorabilia stall and unseen footage on a large screen. Shayne Driscoll will host the event, and spin the vinyl at an all-Elvis disco.
This will be John's only UK show, so please come along and enjoy a wonderful evening of fun with someone that knew and worked with the King!

Any chance getting a report on how things went? It surely would be much appreciated.
