What would Elvis be doing today?

Here's a fun article asking people what they think Elvis would be doing if he were alive today. From the Daily Southtown in Chicago, IL.

Risking the wrath of Elvis fans worldwide, Lin Brehmer, morning personality at WXRT-FM (93.1), said today's Elvis probably would weigh close to 400 pounds. "I've gotta believe his diet and personal grooming habits would not have led him to flat-bellied immortality," Brehmer said. "I think we're talking about the Marlon Brando of rock history, a legend who let his own legend consume him."...

With fans worldwide, Elvis would be one busy 70-year-old, Trent Carlini said. Carlini, originally from Chicago, lives in Las Vegas and is one of the nation's top Elvis impersonators. Finally free of his longtime manager, Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis would be able to tour overseas, Carlini said. Parker, fearing deportation as an alleged illegal alien, never allowed Elvis to tour overseas, he said...

Brehmer thinks Tarantino would have called on Elvis for a quirky role, and the King would be busy "playing heavies" — no pun intended...
