Kiss rocker TOMMY THAYER was overjoyed to be taken on a private tour of Elvis Presley's Graceland estate in Memphis, Tennessee earlier this week (begs04Jun07). The guitarist and his wife Amber were even allowed to park their car in front of Presley's garage. Thayer writes on his website: "While in Memphis this week, I was invited to take a private tour of Graceland. It's something that I've always wanted to do, to check out Elvis Presley's 14 acre private estate. "Amber and I were told to drive directly to the main gate and we drove right up the driveway to the mansion and parked in front of Elvis's garage. "It was an incredible experience, seeing up close the home of The King of rock and roll!" Presley died on 16 August 1977 at the age of 42.
