Rick Huntress

What's it like to impersonate Elvis?

"It's a blast. It's different," he said. "It's kind of like being ... being the guy, almost."
What he likes most is the feeling he gets when performing on stage: It's sort of a rush, he said. What he likes least is the aggravation of preparing for and setting up a show...

Is there anything else that separates him from other Elvis impersonators?

"I don't know. I mean we're all in it doing the same thing," he said. "Some people are in it for the money. Some people aren't even Elvis fans who are doing it -- somebody said they look like him, so they got into it. But their heart's not in it. See, my heart's in it -- that's the big thing."

"I have a passion for it," he said.
