Elvis-obsessed singer Quatro covered All Shook Up in 1974
Suzi Quatro has finally visited Elvis Presley's US home Graceland, 35 years after snubbing his personal invitation.
The former glam-rocker said she was in tears when she arrived in Memphis to record a BBC Radio 2 show marking 75 years since his birth next year.
The singer-turned-broadcaster has had a life-long obsession with The King, and says he influenced her whole career.
She had just covered a Presley song and was on tour in a Memphis hotel in 1974 when Elvis phoned to invite her over.
BBC producer Mark Hagen said: "She was on tour in Memphis at that time and she had her version of All Shook Up on the American charts.
"Elvis heard this and phoned her up when she was sitting peacefully in her hotel room in Memphis and said 'do you want to come over?'
"Suzi would tell you it was complicated. She was in a relationship anyway, bit busy... I think she was a bit scared - she is a huge Elvis fan, so to pick up the phone in that hotel room and have Elvis on the other end of the line...".
Quatro's documentary Graceland explores her obsession with Presley and his influence on her.
She also visits his birthplace, meets some of his childhood friends and looks around Sun Records where the star made his earliest recordings.
She said: "To finally be going to Graceland after all these years. Wow - what a journey. It was very, very emotional.
"I was in tears many times as I traced the footsteps of Elvis Presley who was, and is, the reason I do what I do."
American-born Quatro, 59, moved to the UK in 1971 and had a string of hits in that decade including Can the Can, 48 Crash and Devil Gate Drive.
Radio 2 will broadcast her documentary on 7 January.
