British Elvis fans are all shook for the 30th anniversary of The Kings death, and according to Trevor Yeardye who runs Elvis.co.uk with his superfan wife UK fans love The King more tenderly than any Yank ever could.
However, Yeardye says Brit fans are sad because Elvis The Pelvis never graced a UK stage during his career leaving British fans scrounging and hoarding anything Elvis and creating what he calls a die-hard fanbase of true collectors, not old ladies with silly Elvis plates on their walls.
And Yeardye is proving his love for Presley by holding the Elvis: Party in the Park in Darby, England next Wednesday (Aug. 8), where European rock-a-billies can have a little less conversation, and a little more Elvis fun, and say thank you very much to his work.
He says: We have to make up for never having him in the UK. Were active, deeper fans because of it.
