It was almost 50 years ago when Linda Thompson first started dating Elvis Presley. From 1972 to 1976, the couple lived together at Graceland. Linda also wrote her memoir a few years back, looking back on those days.
Linda Thompson‘s book is called A Little Thing Called Life: On Loving Elvis Presley, Bruce Jenner and Songs in Between.
Linda shared photos from her life, including one from when she was dating The King, on the occasion of her memoir’s anniversary.
On her Instagram, the 71-year old wrote: “Here’s a selection of images from book signing parties and some of my memories.”
“Included between every chapter are lyrics I wrote for songs that you may know. They correspond to special moments of my life.”
Parts of Elvis’ language were started with Gladys his mother, whom he loved dearly. Iddytream was a word that meant ice cream. Milk is butch, and sooties are feet.
Linda used to speak this “baby talk”, which Elvis would listen to when he felt down. Some words weren’t understood by the Memphis Mafia, so they couldn’t be translated.
A film biopic about Elvis’ life is in production at Warner Bros. It was directed in Australia by Baz Luhrmann.
The film will be released on June 3rd 2022 and Austin Butler plays The King alongside Tom Hanks, who is his manager Colonel Tom Parker.
