If Elvis was a Brit...

Music legend Sir Elton John thinks that if the king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley had lived in Britain instead of America he would still have been alive.

The singer revealed he was surprised at how haggard Elvis looked when he met him before his death in 1976, and says that Elvis would have been much better off had he been living in Britain because there one is less likely to become a drug addict. He said that he was speaking from personal experience when his friends forced him to get off drugs after his addiction became dangerous.

"The s**t that he was doing to himself, if he had lived in Britain, I don't think that would have happened to him. The celebrity world of America has too many yes men. You get cocooned," Rate the Music quoted him as saying. "At least when I was doing drugs, I had my good friends move away from me because they didn't want to know me," he added.
