Uri Geller secures Elvis's first house

Stumps $905k for Memphis pad

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Uri Geller has stumped up a $905,100 winning bid to secure Elvis Presley's first house in Memphis, the BBC reports.

Elvis's first house - yours for sold for $905,100

Geller - described by the Beeb as "a former friend of Michael Jackson" - enthused: "We are unbelievably pleased. This is a piece of history." He says the house will now be restored and opened to Joe Public.

Of course, psychic Geller did not have to check the eBay auction for confirmation that he had indeed secured his prize, as he explained: "As the clock closed on the bidding [on] Sunday, I felt intuitively I got the price. Suddenly the radio started playing an Elvis song. That was Elvis telling me we got the house." ®
