Uri buys Elvis's house

I see that spoonbender Uri Geller has bought Elvis's first house in Memphis on eBay. Apparently his psychic powers told him how much to bid. Elvis bought the house in 1956 and lived there for a year before moving to Gracelands, having built a large swimming pool in the grounds. Uri now intends to open it as a tourist attraction, presumably with a collection of Elvis's bent spoons and broken watches on display. At least there should be more to see than at Elvis's childhood home in Tupelo which, for a couple of dollars, you can walk through - it takes all of ten seconds. Uri claims to have had an influence on a number of singers, with Johnny Cash among those who have mentioned him or his spoonbending tricks. His website also includes a page on his record collection, displaying a lack of imagination and taste on his part as he lists Elton John, Michael Jackson, The Bee Gees and Charles Aznavour among his favourites. In the 70s he made an LP of his own - spoken, rather than sung. I have a copy if anyone wants it. I've tried to sell it on eBay without success but would be happy to sell it to the first person to offer me a fiver. I'm not saying it's worth as much as that mind you.
