When shooting movies in Hollywood, Elvis Presley would live in Los Angeles. One of his homes during the mid-1960s was 525 Perugia Way in Bel Air, where he invited The Beatles over for their iconic one-off meeting. And just like at Graceland, The King had his Memphis Mafia entourage living with him, helping provide security.
One of the closest members of Elvis’ inner circle was his cousin Billy Smith, who brought his wife Jo and toddler Danny with him to LA.
Now all grown up, the latter has shared a photo on his Memphis Mafia Kid YouTube channel of himself outside the property.
Danny, who was just 2 or 3 at the time, can be seen sitting on his tricycle toy by the cars next to The King himself and his father Vernon Presley.
During the interview, he shared fond memories of being looked after by Elvis’ housekeeper Alvina, while his mother Jo was pregnant with his little brother Joey.
Danny added: “And Mama said whenever they heard that they’d go crazy because by that time Bel Air police was out by the house.
“From what I understand I did that about two or three times!
In another video, the Memphis Mafia Kid also shared how at Graceland he once accidentally phoned Elvis’ bedroom while The King was sleeping.
Lucky for Danny, he never heard anything so hopefully didn’t wake the star, who slept through the day.
