Frank Sinatra’s hypocritical outburst at Elvis Presley slammed by The King’s family: WATCH

After serving two years in the army, Elvis Presley famously sang on The Frank Sinatra Timex Show: Welcome Home Elvis. But just three years prior the crooner did not hold back in his comments on The King and rock and roll stars like him. According to Elvis biography Last Train To Memphis, Sinatra wrote in a newspaper article: “Rock and roll smells phony and false. It is sung and written for the most part by cretinous goons.”

Sinatra, writing in the LA Mirror News, continued: “It manages to be the martial music of every sideburned delinquent on the face of the earth.

“[It] is the most brutal, ugly, desperate, vicious form of expression it has been my misfortune to hear.”

While on Elvis’ music, he wrote: “His kind of music is deplorable, a rancid smelling aphrodisiac … it fosters almost universally negative and destructive directions in young people.”

Now Elvis’ cousin Billy Smith has responded to these quotes, having read them on Facebook.

On his YouTube channel ELM: Elvis Fans Matter, the Memphis Mafia member said: “It was some pretty harsh stuff.

“It got under my skin a little bit because I’m thinking here’s a man now that couldn’t wait to get Elvis on his show.

“Even before he was on his show, he was around GI Blues when he was dating Juliet Prowse. Frank Sinatra came on the set.”

Elvis starred opposite Prowse in the 1960 movie and The King even had an affair with his co-star before Frank was later engaged to her.

Billy added: “But this bothered me because I couldn’t believe of all people Frank Sinatra would talk like that if it’s true.

“I have a hard time believing he would say that kind of stuff.”

His wife Jo Smith, who knew The King too, added: “It’s kinda like what Elvis always said, how can anybody not like him?

“He never could understand that anybody couldn’t like him.”
