Reports indicate that Elvis Presley asked David Bowie to be his producer.

The claim comes from country star Dwight Yoakam in an interview with US newspaper the Orange County Register.

In the article, published before a concert in southern California, the singer was asked about Bowie, whom he had met in 1997, and with whom he shared a love of Elvis.

Yoakam said Bowie told him that six months before Elvis’s death in August 1977, Presley had phoned asking him to produce his next record.

However, due to unavoidable circumstances, the request was unable to be granted.
