Cliff Richard's disappointment over Elvis Presley attempt 'Was just unfortunate'

Sir Cliff elaborated on how he tried to meet Elvis in the late 1950s in Germany, while he was in the army.

“I had gone on holiday with the drummer of the Shadows, Tony Meehan, and a friend of mine and his girlfriend, and we had driven to Viareggio in Italy,” Sir Cliff explained.

“On the way back they said, ‘Look, if we just take a little detour we can go via Germany’ and I said, ‘Well let’s go to Bad Nauheim and see if we can find Elvis.'”

They attempted to gain entry into a house they believed the singer was staying in.
