John Lennon famously said that without Elvis Presley there'd have been no Beatles. Less well known is that the King - who would have been 80 - was still impacting the group some 25 years after Lennon's untimely death.

It seems Paul McCartney was listening, and closely, when a Junkie XL remix of Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" topped the charts in nine different countries back in 2002. "I'd been getting a little bit jealous," McCartney tells Steven Van Zandt. "I was seeing remixes of, like, Elvis' things coming out - and I was thinking: `That sounds good, man.' You know, it's still Elvis, but they've put a new beat behind it. I thought: `I kind of like that.'"
Then, a few years later, he was approached about doing a Fab Four-themed Cirque du Soleil production, which eventually became 2006's Love. McCartney, no doubt still remembering Elvis Presley, says he jumped at the chance to oversee a series of remixes - hand picking Beatles producer George Martin's son Giles to do the work.
McCartney has since worked with the younger Martin on his 2013 release New (on which Giles produced or co-produced a half dozen tracks including "On My Way to Work"), as well as McCartney's current single - a video game-themed track titled "Destiny." Turns out, it all started (once again) with Elvis Presley.

LONG LIVE ELVIS PRESLEY STILL FOREVER THE KING OF ROCK N' ROLL !!!

Nope. He's in the back where he went face down in his 12th peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich. He sure does like Elvis.

Returning to the Lettermen, Tony Butala as a kid can be seen in "White Christmas", with Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney.

Uh oh, it's August 16th again. That means the adult/child Elvis crazies will once again be heading down to their basement lairs, order mom NOT to disturb them, head for the crusty computer and begin their yearly ritual of masturbating with one hand and typing about the past glories of their god Elvis with the other.

I suggest we take the same precautions that Gallagher concert-goers take by covering ourselves with plastic and preparing for the spray.

re: the piano player

I've come to the conclusion looking at her head she must be a Pez dispenser.

re: "the piano player"

Is she wearing a helmet?

re: "and why is she smiling like that?"

I can only assume it was a face-lift gone terribly wrong.
