May wrote on his Instagram: “No – I never got to meet Elvis, or even see him perform live. Much to my sadness.
“But it was lovely spending some time with Priscilla, his beautiful wife, and hearing some of those Elvis stories first-hand.
“Notably, for people like us who perform, it’s always interesting to hear that everybody gets nervous before a show.
“Priscilla told me Elvis was always incredibly anxious before he went on, and I saw the same comment about Luciano Pavarotti in that excellent documentary recently.”
