No it's not, but there is quite a lot of footage of the funeral procession on that DVD and it's very nicely done.

Thanks for the answer - I am expecting Love Coming Down in the post tomorrow and had heard that there was funeral footage with I'm Leavin' dubbed over it.

That's right and it's a nice touch. There's also a tribute video using Lisa's Nobody Noticed It, which works very nicely. Great stuff from Star again.

Does anyone here know the identity of the "This Is Elvis Guy?"

I know it's not Junior Parker...

I think its a very young Bill Clinton - must have used the funeral as a chance to sneak away from Hillary's eyes for a day or so.:)

I don't know either, but it's possibly one of the coolest things I've ever heard said about Elvis!
Thanks for the link Sean.

I agree.

It was a pleasure to share that with you.
Would love to get the whole of that guys interview.

The guy is so well known for those few words and nobody knows him.

"Elvis will always be the king of rock 'n' roll [to me]"

Pity about those last two qualifying words !

I noticed they were edited out for the This Is Elvis film.

It doesn't appear to me to be Richard Davis. My first thought was that it was Dick Grob.

Wed Sep 27, 2006 6:38 pm

I thought it looked like James Burton.

Wed Sep 27, 2006 7:23 pm

The person resembles James somewhat, but I'm pretty certain it's not him. I would bet it's Grob.

Let's get a sworn statement from Grob that it was him.

Then we'll know it wasn't.
