HAD he lived – which he did – Elvis Presley would be 75 today. Old Mr Anorak saw Elvis just yesterday. He knew it was Elvis because the man sat in the Sainsbury’s café kept swivelling the toe of his left foot on the lino and also because he was immensely fat. Meanwhile,. I was in Baker Street looking at Asian Elvis, Geordie Elvis, Jewish Elvis and Sicilian Elvis celebrated Elvis Presley’s 75th Birthday outside an Elvis shop.
