    Might be a little ambitious for the “King”.
    EC is a WAY better singer.

    Declan Patrick Aloysius Macmanus had no business "borrowing" the Elvis moniker, with that annoying voice that manages to be somehow simultaneously gravely and snivelly :)

    (also, he should buy himself a decent rug)

    Declan Patrick Aloysius McManus is a real artist.
    He writes his own stuff, sings his arse off, and has had a long, and wildly successful career.
    Elvis the lesser was a tow-headed mama’s boy who discovered his mama’s black hair dye, and learned to shake his leg and sneer.
    Every corn-fed Connie in America took notice.
    Whee!
    Ova-rated, like never before, or since!

    Exceptions including, you know, the song he's best-known for.

    The lads had four times the artistic power, out of the gate.
    All far better singers, too!

    You’re right, but type ‘Hallelujah Elvis’ into the Tube and it’s there. Not sure who did it or how but it’s very convincing and good!

    Not a bad imitation, yet an imitation nonetheless

    Don’t forget a helluva guitarist as well. I’m with you on this one. There really isn’t any comparison.

    @brookdalebill Costello and the Beatles themselves would likely disagree with what you’re saying. I question your understanding of rock history if you minimize the importance of Elvis Presley.

    Consider this-Declan Patrick Aloysios McManus took Elvis' name as his own. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, right?

    Further reflect that there are multitudes of (true) Elvis imitators (an example of which is shown above), and yet, how many Declan Patrick Aloysios McManus imitators are there that you are aware of, offhand? ;)

    I know of the famous Lennon quote regarding Elvis.
    I don’t hate Elvis, really!
    I sing three Elvis tunes.
    I regularly play with people that do the Elvis catalog.
    I also am truly glad that we all have our own opinions.
    Why join the herd?
    Herd immunity?
    Anyways, fundamentally, I think Elvis was a lucky, lucky guy.
    Who wouldn’t want what he had?
    OK, me, but who else?
