Here are some links to other Elvis
impersonators, some of whom I have met. Sal
Bashir (The Pakistani Elvis) - I actually saw Sal's
show, the 1st Elvis show I have ever seen, when we were in
Edinburgh together. Nice guy. It is also the last ever Elvis
show I have ever seen. Shmelvis
- (the UK's No 1 Jewish Elvis - a top bloke & he tells
gags too!) Not to be confused with Schmelvis,
which is an American site (and funny, too) Marty Tempest
- very conscientous. Will make sure you have a great night
and he has a heart of gold, too. Eddie Vee - The
Yorkshire Elvis. Wanna know the gossip in the world of Elvis?
Mr Vee's your man. Has his own cape. Colbert
Hamilton - The Black
Elvis - with a great rock 'n' roll voice, I like Colbert
a lot Louis
Rockafella - this guy
has some hilarious merchandise, which I can recommend. A
fun geezer. Scouser, however...so keep your valuables locked
up. Tattoos. Lou
Jordan - He did Angelina
Jolie with me as mentioned above (and what a time we both
- OK, so I have not met him - but he sent me a nice email Deke
- One of the 1st Elvises I ever met - this guy actually
owes me money and has done for over 4 years! But
I am sure he wouldn't rip you off... Rick
Dunham (Elvis Himselvis)
- Great Stage Name! (but never met the bloke) Martin
Fox - (met him, nice
guy and comes highly recommended!) Mark
(Ireland-based) Leen- the Emerald Elvis -
("Europe's No 1 Elvis" - If you say so, Mark...
(see below)) Paul
Lillie - If you actually
want to hire someone with some musical talent (which given
you have read all the way down to here you obviously don't!)
then I have to recommend Paul, who plays the guitar very
well, sings and won a competition recently. He is also a
very nice man Adam
Carter - Just logged on to this website and his sound
samples are good. I couldn't find his direct website. This
is one of the many agents that you can book him through
- though I confess I didn't look hard. William Maurice
- is a great guy that sold me a great costume. An International
Man of Mystery-style Elvis, Bill is hard to track down The Flying Elvii
- you've seen that film with Nic Cage. Here they are online Evil
Elvis - Ever wondered what happens to Elvises when they
become jealous of one another?
Evil, is what!
For Elvis Lyrics?
The best way to learn all the lyrics to all the great tunes Elvis produced is to listen to them and figure them out for yourself. If something is missing from your vintage vinyl collection you can still find most albums on CD or iTunes now. Of course the easy way out, is to just find a site like this with all the lyrics available to you.
I have in the past put up links to sites where you can find
Elvis lyrics, but they are not great or easy to use. You
have to install Active-X on your machine in some cases,
which is very dodgy to say the least, and worse, the site
owners having agreed to put a reciprocating link up have
failed to do so. So screw them. I have in the meantime received
a copy of all the lyrics. Its not perfect but they're as good
as you'll get on any site. And once you have downloaded
it, its there for you. You can then open it up and search
the document for the song title. Easy. Right-click

ChineseElvis' "UK's Number 1
Elvis" 5-a-side Football Team
(addressing the question of who is the best
Elvis in the UK)
In the world of
impersonating Elvis, there is a lot of rivalry buried deep,
like a glob of jelly in a deep-fried peanut-butter and jelly
sandwich. It got quite nasty on the Elvis
internet message boards
recently, which is how I got to hear of it. It was very
entertaining, but now, unfortunately, it has been censored.
But a lot of bitterness surrounds who is the "Number
1 Elvis in the UK". Well, after 5 minutes of looking
on the internet, I discovered five of them. And that is
enough for an Elvis football team. Let us not forget the
impact Elvis had on the 2002 Soccer world-cup with his remixed
hit, "A Little Less Conversation". The Nike ad
featured overpaid soccer "stars" but would have
been much better featuring my "Number 1" team
below, in my opinion.
If you know of
any other "Number 1" or "The Best Ever",
please let me know and I will add them to the squad in a
rotational way, in the style of Rafa Benitez. To qualify,
they have to have the words "No 1" or similar
in their advertising. They are all number 1, bless.
If you are thinking of booking an Elvis, please think twice
about what you are letting yourself in for. Do you really
want a tatooed idiot with a microphone and his cretinous
entourage showing up at your event?
You do?! Well, then here is another list of Elvii at The
Worlds Greatest Elvis.
Wedding photographer? I like her style, she took this piccy
and thats good enough for me. Its Rowena
The best DJ in
town - DJ Simon Henderson's website. What town, though?
Manningtree? Its not clear where -but who gives a monkey's
when he's THE BEST...?!
This links you to the site of the
Elvis which is about
Elvis impersonators and is almost hilarious and almost brilliant.
This takes you to a site about
food, which has nothing
to do with Elvis Impersonators but plenty to do with Chinese
While I'm at it, try this new site
where you can review your local Chinese restaurant (or something
like that) Chinese
After Elvis sadly passed away,
I felt alone. Ten years later, I was introduced to the 80s
- and I felt even more alone.
This takes you to a site, which has nothing to do with Chinese Food or Elvis Impersonators, but is a tv film I was in: The Lost Battallion
