Lord Almighty, I feel my temperature rising. Elvis is coming to town. No, Elvis Presley is still dead. And Elvis Costello isn't coming to town until November (when he plays the Cap). This Elvis is Elvis Aaron Presley, Jr., son of the megastar born out of wedlock with Angelique Delores Pettyjohn, an actress who was an extra in the Presley film Blue Hawaii. He didn't even learn who his real dad was until he was 21. After that he wisely had his name legally changed and began pursuing his real father's legacy. Saturday he'll perform a tribute show to his dad at the Edgerton Center, but unlike other impersonators who only have the jumpsuits, this one's also got the genes.
