Sad news Ed Leek died 4th June 2010..
Ed Leek was selling the historic and original "My Happiness" 78rpm acetate record which his pal Elvis Presley gave to him in 1953! As the "Holy Grail" of Rock 'n' Roll, It's got to be worth a huge sum of cash. It is now the property of his widow, Mrs Susan Leek. There are those that think the record may have lost some of it's value because the song was reproduced commercially. So was the "Mona Lisa" and John Constables "Haywain", the originals are still priceless.
