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:


Gallery of Elvis impersonators.


Elvis impersonator walking in Memphis.


Stilt-walking Elvis & friends.

^ 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...

Impersonators only do old/fat Elvis--which is worthless.

When the lad comes along that can do young Elvis, that will be worth something.

that is a myth propagated by snide sneering snoots who want to have a laff, because when the media wants to feature an E.I., they go for a bad Fat Late Period one, to have a laff ... E.I. competitions and organizations feature E's from all incarnacions

granted, there is a limited window to perform as Blue Suede Elvis, so a more common nonfat Elvis you might encounter would be a Black Leather Comeback Elvis like such at the Ramada Reno

Poppycock. That a is not a "myth," that is as plain as the nose on your face. And they don't go for bad fat Elvis for a laff, they go for bad fat Elvis because they are bad and fat. bounce

Because you have not personally witnessed something, that does not mean it is imaginary.

I have been to an Elvis Impersonation Gala Celebration & Competition where many incarnations of Elvis were represented and many EI's were not obese and or Late Period.

So poppycock to you, 1000 times.

that's right, Yak. When Americans repeat crude caricatures about the rich tapestry of the USA, they're helping to give succor to her enemies. SUCCOR.

OK, I was looking at the front guy in Eddie's picture--I see some fitter guys farther back.

But my "poppycock" claim applies to your claim that the bad and fat impersonators are bad and fat for a laff--instead of bad and fat because that's what they are--so the poppycock is all on you, not the pinhed. bounce

two thousand times no, my claim is that our finest, most professional E.I.'s are oft-ignored in favour of inferior E.I.'s with more comedic value.
