Elvis Presley had a habit of shooting television sets. From Snopes:"[I]n I’ll Be Right Back (Simon and Schuster, 1999), the biography of talk show host Mike Douglas. According to Douglas, Elvis was irritated that Goulet had dated a singer from Elvis’ group. When Goulet was a guest on The Mike Douglas Show, Elvis shot the TV set. Because this happened in a hotel, the incident surfaced in the press. Elvis was concerned about the reaction of Mike Douglas to the news story and phoned him to apologize. Douglas saw this as an opportunity to get Elvis on his show. Elvis: “I’m sorry, Mr. Douglas. Mike. I can’t. Honest to God. I just can’t.” Douglas: “Elvis, why not? You don’t even have to sing if you don’t want to.” Douglas tried several angles during the phone call, but Elvis refused. The TV set is on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”
