Gary Collins Is A WANTED Man!

Gary Collins (husband to Elvis co-star Mary Ann Mobley in the film Harum Scarum) is in a heap of T-R-O-U-B-L-E -- there's a warrant out for his arrest in the wake of his latest vehicular misstep in Mississippi ... and prosecutors are now gunning to revoke his probation. On November 4, Collins was supposed to show up in court in L.A. for a probation progress report in connection with his 2007 DUI.  According to court records -- he failed to appear, so the judge issued a $100,000 arrest warrant. Ironically, had Collins shown up in court on November 4 for his progress report, the L.A. judge would have terminated his probation. Collins is a 2-time DUI offender.  As for his most recent run-in with the law, one of the passengers in the car he allegedly hit in Mississippi says he smelled alcohol on Collins' breath, however, cops only charged him with hit and run.  That case is pending. Rick Schmidt, Supervisor for the Van Nuys Branch of the City Attorney's Office, tells TMZ

Elvis Inspired Tom Jones Gospel Album

Tom Jones has said that his latest album ‘Praise and Blame’ is a tribute to Elvis Presley. According to MSN, Jones said “[Elvis and I] would stay up all night talking about music. He was surprised I knew gospel songs and wanted to know when I’d record a gospel album. I said I would and this is it.” Jones made a name for himself singing pop music. Having recorded hits such as ‘It’s Not Unusual’, ‘What’s New Pussycat?’ and ‘The Green Green Grass Of Home’, Jones decided to go to to gospel music at the age of 70 to mixed reviews. ‘Praise and Blame’ was produced by Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Crowded House) and features a huge list of amazing musicians including Booker T. Jones and Gillian Welch.

"Technically, now we can hear Elvis' performances cleaner and clearer," said Rob Santos, vice-president of A&R at Sony Music Entertainment. "You can hear his voice in a way you never have before."
