Doing the double switch are Liberace, just back from a European tour, and Elvis Presley. Liberace gave up his piano and gold sequined jacket to Presley for the latter’s guitar and striped sports coat in an impromptu jam session backstage after Liberace’s appearance at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas.
