If you say so, though I think you'll find you can get an eye test for free under the NHS these days.speedoo wrote:Think before you post.
Oh but I do...very carefully indeed. Perhaps that's why I haven't been banned from the site and felt the need to return under an assumed log-in name.

You should bear in mind that a person's writing style is as individual and revealing as a signature....perhaps more so. It is obvious to anyone with average insight (especially those, like me, who have had exchanges with you before) exactly who you are....or at least which username you adopted before. If your writing style wasn't enough, we have the same agenda and some particularly significant friends. Too bad, your cover is blown.
Now whether it turns out to be Clyde McPhatter or not, is not the issue regarding my comments to you. You, alone, stated that you couldn't see the resemblance "at all,"which is plainly ridiculous given that everyone else, including "Chris Black," admitted there were similarities.
It is obvious to all of us here that you were using the doubt caused by "Mr. Black's" post as an opportunity to belittle the Doc which you then tried to capitalise on further in another post criticising his writing style. However, in this case it has backfired and it is you who is left looking silly.
Best now to stop digging, although I suppose you could argue that you have little credibility left to lose.

Your exegesis is simply stunning. And erroneous.
My writing style is far superior to midnightx.

Surely you're not expecting "Chris Black" to come back and admit he was wrong after all the fuss he's caused?

I've spoken to Clyde McPhatter's widow, Lee Rackley, and she's looked at the screen grab I sent her that some misguided people here think shows Elvis with Clyde McPhatter. As I suspected, it's not Clyde. Lee told me they never met. She says that Clyde often said he'd like to meet Elvis but the opportunity never arose. I told her the photo was taken in August 1970 in Las Vegas and she confirmed that Clyde wasn't in Vegas that year. He was living in England until the middle of 1970, then returned to make an LP for Decca in Philadelphia. (Dates and places can be checked in the booklet to the Bear Family box-set 'Rhythm & Soul'.) Lee told me that Clyde wasn't moving in the same circles as Elvis at that time and was finding it very hard to find work. Sad but true, he probably could not have afforded to go to Vegas if he'd wanted to.
So, based on actual research and not speculation, there's the truth.
