KENNY THE KING? 

KENNY THE KING?

Elvis Week has come and gone, and the devoted fans of the King of Rock-and-Roll have returned to their homes from all over the globe. Their devotion always makes us ponder Elvis everlasting fame, because what other entertainer has fans who try to make themselves actually resemble their hero? Are there Frank Sinatra look-alikes? Liberace impersonators? God, we hope not. So Elvis, and Elvis alone, was the only one with hoards of impersonators. Or so we thought, until one of our hardworking interns stumbled upon a curious Web site devoted to men who resemble country crooner Kenny Rogers, MenWhoLookLikeKennyRogers, a dot com. Now, it s true that some of these folks aren t shown here because they really want to be -- let s just say some of them are involuntary impersonators -- but the very notion just gives us the shivers. We ll take the King over the Gambler any day.
