But can we identify all the other "Presley wannabe"s in this pic? Looks like Tommy Steele far left, Rick(y) Nelson to Presley's immediate left and it's definitely Ritchie Valens between Cochran and Sir Cliff (is that Terry Dene next to Valens?). Who are the rest?

EDIT: could be Frankie Avalon looking over Rick Nelson's shoulder and Fabian seated far right? Gene Vincent to the left of Avalon? But who's the chubby-faced guy with the kiss curl? And who's the remaining greaser?

I must confess that I'm not altogether sure, felix.

All I know is that Elvis impersonation has become a posthumous industry:

^ Reminds me of a bizarre episode in the Canadian/US TV series Due South (a Canadian Mountie is seconded to the Chicago PD) where the cops were instructed to round up the elves (don't ask) and mistakenly rounded up a load of Elvis impersonayors. Don't ask, I said. cat

As regards the guests at Elvis's last supper, the guy I thought was Frankie Avalon was in fact Tommy Sands; Gene Vincent was, apparently, Billy Fury; and the kiss-curl guy was P J Proby. At least that's what some chap on the interwebs reckons...
