  2. So....the upcoming Baz Luhrmann Bio-Pic "Elvis" will no doubt spark a renewed interest in Mr Elvis Aaron Presley.
    I was at a lovely venue in Noosa (Queensland Australia) watching the Whitlams (Australian band) over the weekend and it was announced by Tim Freedman (Lead Vocal, Piano) that drummer Terepai Richmond was the drummer in Elvis' band in the "Elvis" movie!
    (I cannot find any mention of Terapai in any casting lists etc of the "Elvis" movie.)
    Terapai is involved in other bands (as well as long term Whitlams drummer) and is a renowned session drummer.

    Just more to talk about re: the "Elvis" movie and a little more abstract than the obvious!!!

    Stay Safe
    Cheers

    1. Hi Stephen,
      Great band the Whitlams.
      I am looking forward to seeing this new Elvis movie... I actually like biopics, sometime they make it enjoyable and interesting even though the truth may be skewed to suit the presenter.

      Cheers.

      Cheers.

    1. Thanks Andy, appreciated.
      Too many sweets are supposed to be bad for you but not musical treats.
      Enjoy all you find here.
