LOL! Just wanted to ask the same. Do you get Google Alerts, too? ;)

Seems like just another bloodsucker who shook Elvis' hand once (probably prior to a recordings session) and traveled around ever since telling the world that he played with Elvis. Oh man, poor guys ... Yes, I always knew it: Those perfectly played drums on It's Now Or Never: That HAS to be the great Bill Lynn!

From what I understand he was movie extra, who can be seen as the drummer in Easy Come Easy Go and Speedway. Somehow he got the idea that he had actually played drums for Elvis and started touring the fan circuit in the early 90s as a "guest of honor".
