Kate Bush and Elvis Presley..

Kate bush is in the news! March 21st 2014.
A photo of Kate Bush signed top left but a little sun faded. It came with a typed and signed letter from Kate in reply to a letter from me in 1984.
What an astounding artist she is.
Her tribute to Elvis Presley, the song, 'King of the Mountain', came as a great and most welcome surprise.

A letter from ex-movie star Dolores Hart. Now Mother Dolores Hart a Prioress osb., at the Abbey in Bethlehem, Connecticut.
It's always heart-warming to hear from this special lady as she was so busy recently meeting Elvis fans and the media in Graceland Memphis Tennessee!
Mother Dolores always speaks respectfully of Elvis and tells some very entertaining and funny stories of their first meeting in 1957 when she did not know who he was!
