Return to sender! Elvis’s soiled underpants fail to sell at auction

Unwashed... And unloved: The King's stained underwear was worn under a jumpsuit for a 1977 concert, but failed to lure fans when it went on sale in Stockport

In his hip-swivelling heyday, millions of women went weak at the knees at the mere thought of Elvis Presley’s pants.

Alas, it seems the reality proved a disappointment at auction in Manchester last week, when a soiled pair of the King’s undergarments shockingly failed to snare a buyer.

The light blue pants were worn under one of his famous white jumpsuits during a 1977 concert performance.

Tidy sum: Auctioneer Paul Fairweather polishes a picture frame containing the pair of unwashed briefs at Omega Auctions in Stockport

Shed Music….. Johnny Cash: The Complete Columbia Album Collection

Around the Shed we like to play all sorts of music….

Johnny Cash: The Complete Columbia Album Collection

Sure, a lot of younger folk might remember the Man in Black for his final records with Rick Rubin, but Johnny Cash made his name — and spent the bulk of his career — on Columbia. Johnny Cash: The Complete Columbia Album Collection celebrates this 32-year stint by including all 59 original albums on CD, as well as a 2-CD collection of singles that didn’t originally appear on albums, and a 28-song collection of tracks from his Sun Records years — which includes “Folsom Prison Blues” and “I Walk The Line” — all in a single box set.

Vale: Jon Lord

English musician Jon Lord, best known as the keyboardist for the band Deep Purple and co-writer of the hit song “Smoke on the Water”, has died aged 71 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

A classically trained musician, Lord was the composer of the orchestral work Concerto for Group & Orchestra which was performed by Deep Purple and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in the Royal Albert Hall, London in 1969.

“Every rock band that has pretentions to being serious has worked with a symphony orchestra, but not before Deep Purple did it,” Baker said.

It’s a strong contrast between their work in classical music and at the same time being recognised as the world’s “Loudest Pop Group” in the Guinness Book of World Records after reaching 117 decibels in a performance in London’s Rainbow Theatre in 1972.

Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice were the only constant members of the band from its founding in 1968 through multiple incarnations until Lord retired from Deep Purple in 2002.

THOUSANDS turned out for the first Somerset Cider Festival at Pawlett Pavilion where the weekend fun was headlined by The Wurzels.

The crowds enjoyed a good sing-along to classics such as Combine Harvester, Blackbird and, fittingly for the occasion, I Am A Cider Drinker.
