In recent years, Tom Jones has come out with some questionable memories regarding his time spent with Elvis and various situations which involved the two singers. Most of these
claims have been denied by those who were around Elvis as part of his inner circle. Now, the Welsh warbler has revealed how he almost opened a hotel in Las Vegas with singing
legends Frank Sinatra and, yes you guessed it, Elvis Presley.
The 75-year-old Jones revealed that 'New York, New York' crooner Sinatra approached him about setting up their own establishment in Sin City with a group of other high profile
entertainers and they even planned to call it 'Tiger Bay'.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the Q Awards in London, he said: ''Frank Sinatra asked me if I would be interested in building a hotel with him in Las Vegas. He said to me, 'Let's do it
and then we can control them rather than them controlling us.'
It came pretty close, Frank and myself and Elvis Presley and some other people who were big names at the time we're going to do it. We almost got to it but it never occurred. We
could have called it Tiger Bay, that would have been good.
''Elvis' karate name was Tiger. I've been known as El Tigre - that's my Spanish name - so I was known as The Tiger when I stared out. So Tiger Bay would have been a good name
Tom recently penned his autobiography, 'Tom Jones Over The Top and Back' and insisted it was easy because he has a ''photographic memory''........Hmmmmm?????
