Re: “Elvis Week Events

Some folks have made quite a career dressing up and performing as Elvis did. Some of them are quite remarkable. I much prefer the term "Elvis tribute artist" to "Elvis impersonator." These folks are not trying to pass themselves off as Elvis Risen. Elvis was one of the most iconic people in the world, in looks, mannerisms, voice, personality, style of dress. Anyone can imitate Elvis; very few can do it well. Elvis died the day after my 35th birthday, and I have met Scotty, D.J. and James Burton, so I do feel a connection.

I do not like Elvis impersonators. Only the real thing for me.

Re: “Shawn Lane: A Remembrance by Paul Taylor

i was very happy to read your very articulate and accurate article on Shawn Lane. I was not fortunate enough to have known him in person but feel I am very close to him through his inimitable music. He is the reason I picked up the guitar again after 40 years. I heard his music one day on Pandora while listening to my Eric Johnson channel. I sat there in stunned silence at what I heard. How had I missed hearing the most amazingly talented guitarist up until now? It was really the music I had always been waiting to hear. Thank you so much for saying what I am thinking.

Re: “Bad Movie Double Feature

The Fountainhead, even with a smoking hot Patricia Neal, top/bottom five worst of all time.

Re: “Bad Movie Double Feature

I'd like to see these two, also, but yes, "Myra" certainly needs to be on the Top Five Worst. On another note, I wonder if there's such a list for Movies That Are Allegedly Good But I Think They Suck.

Re: “Bad Movie Double Feature

Gotta check these out. I've never seen either one.

In the meantime, 1970's "Myra Breckinridge" gets my vote for worst movie ever. The cast was bizarro: Raquel Welch, Mae West, John Huston, Farrah Fawcett, Jim Backus, Tom Selleck and even Rex Reed. I'm guessing the casting director was out of his skull on mescaline.

Re: “Bad Movie Double Feature

Believe it or not!

My vote goes to "The Room", largely because James Franco likes the films director, writer, and star.

Re: “Flyer Music's Weekend Punch List

Why no mention of "Playing for Change" at the Shell?

Re: “The Cut-Up

I met him today on beale street as my friends and i were passing through memphis. He walked up to me asking for an ankh i made of copper wire that same day and he proceeded to show us all sorts of cool things including all the techniques i use to bend wire, a dvd player with a documentary of his life, and a drawing of us he traded for a drawing one of us did in his own sketchbook. Fucking blown away

Re: “Flyer Music's Weekend Punch List

Thank you, Eli. I appreciate your participation. Let me know what I can do better or how you think you could improve what we do. boone@memphisflyer.com. Or, hell, have at it here. I've been a disgruntled reader and still am. Feedback is helpful. Thanks again.
