    I used to go to Karaoke night in a small bar in a place I’ll call Rural, BC. There was a guy there called Al, aka “Al-vis” who looked for all the world like a fatter, older, balder Elvis.

    Conversation over a couple of years turned up some interesting facts. He was the same age as The King, to within a few days. He’d spent part of his childhood in the South. And he’d moved to Rural back when it was a podunk hamlet of some 600 souls in the mid-seventies, apparently to “get out of the rat race, man. Ah couldn’t take thuh pressure any mower.”

    He apparently played a decent but not scintillating guitar, but had rarely been known to perform in public until Karaoke showed up.

    Curiously, he vanished shortly after it seemed to become common currency that he actually WAS Elvis. Co-incidence? Well maybe.

    Personally I think he packed his bags and is still happily whistling up a storm behind the counter of a Burger Lord in Des Moines.

    Strangely enough there was a rash of flying saucer sightings at that time too.

    Hey, I just report, you decide.

    Metro– There are rumors of an Elvis bistro not too far from here with All Elvis All The Time. I hear it features the Spanish Elvis. I haven’t checked it out yet because I didn’t want to spoil the dream.

    It’s on my bucket list, though.
