The guy that really hated John was TOM JONES. Numerous accounts of this have been common knowledge for decades. Elvis, on the other hand, reserved his most vehement disgust for the lounge crooner Robert Goulet (Elvis' famous Memphis Mafia bodyguard and close friend Red West had even said once, that: Elvis would go to the extreme of firing a gun at a TV if a show featuring Goulet had suddenly come on the screen).
I will play the game Existence to the End ;)

Why, because the Canadian-by-birth Goulet screwed up the lyrics to "Star Spangled Banner" one time?
(Welcome to the forum BTW, Beatofthebrass! I'm enjoying your posts so far. )
GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.
