Pyjamas worn by Elvis near time of death to be sold

By Rod Minchin

A pair of pyjamas worn by Elvis Presley less than five months before his death are to be sold at auction.

The king of rock 'n' roll wore the large Lord Shannon mint-green pyjamas while staying at Baptist Memorial Hospital in early April 1977.

They were later left at his father Vernon's home in Memphis, Tennessee.

After Elvis died in August 1977 aged 42, the pyjamas went on display at the Elvis-A-Rama museum for many years and appeared on national television.

The pyjamas, which were framed in Las Vegas, are going under the hammer at Henry Aldridge & Son in Devizes, Wiltshire tomorrow.
