An interview with Jimmy Ellis and Gail Brewer Giorgio. (yt)

In 1978 Jimmy Ellis released his first major label debut on Sun Records, a recording of "That's All Right Mama/Blue Moon of Kentucky" and credited only as "?" and kickstarted the Elvis is Alive conspiracy theory. For the next five years he performed as "Orion" and always wore a mask.

He took off the mask in 1983, and preformed as himself on an off until his death in 1998.

Quite possibly the worst dancing I've ever seen.

Neat post.
