THE KING IS DEAD (AGAIN)

If you thought the Jungle Room was tacky, check this out. Sounding just like a pre-'68 Comeback rock critic, London Times writer Christopher Goodwin has declared an official end to Elvis Presley's posthumous reign as the Emperor of Pop Culture. Noting that diehard fans are getting a little long in the tooth, he touts the 25th anniversary of Elvis' death as a sort of last hurrah for Graceland. He also thinks that EPE's Jack Soden should perhaps reconsider a business venture pitched to him a few years back: a chain of Elvis funeral homes where "deceased fans could lie in rest listening to the King's music 24 hours a day." According to Goodwin, "In the next few years, that could become a huge money spinner."
