With the possibility of meeting Elvis, David joked that it would give the king of rock n roll the opportunity to meet the queen of rock n roll. read more

David Bowie used to cover loads of people, and there was an element of "David Bowie did it, so we wanted to do it," because we're kind of obsessed [with him].
