He said he went to Los Angeles to talk about a song for a movie. 

When he was in the studio, they told him that Elvish was present and wanted to see him, so he went to meet him on set. 

He said Elvish was in a fake helicopter, and he got out of it and walked towards him. 

He joked that Elvish was singing with his hands while walking towards him.

He said he used to stay at his place sometime, and vice versa.

Elvish was asked to do a song, but he said the song would be perfect if Tom sang it. 

He came to pitch the song to him on his show. When he left the stage, he told him he had a piece for him.

Tom said that he had to shower, so he went to the bathroom to freshen up, and when he was washing his hair, he heard Elvish singing a song. 

Elvish stood outside his shower door, and Tom had soap all over his eyes. When he got out of his shower, he realized Elvish was using his toilet. 

Tom was naked, and Elvish was half-naked. He was singing to him, and his pants were down.

Tom told him about his pants, and when Elvish realized it, his face turned red. 

Music Saved Tom's Life

He said that incident took a tremendous toll on him, and they have known each other since they were 12 years old.

He said she had been with him all his life. After her death, he was unsure if he could continue to live or sing like before. 

His son and his daughter-in-law told him if he would not sing, then he would die. They told him how he could stop singing just like that. 

He realized that he could not leave music like that, so he tried to sing. He gathered some musicians and tried to sing with them. 

He said music has become more important to him than before.
