It's been 42 years since Elvis Presley, the "King" of rock 'n' roll, died. And yet, some people still find themselves all shook up
— so much so that since his funeral in 1977, people have had very active, suspicious minds and have cooked up wild conspiracy theories alleging Elvis is still alive
. One such theory originated in Kalamazoo
, a city he performed in, in the months leading up to his death, in which a woman named Louise Welling claims she saw the King at a local supermarket scarfing down Whoppers at a Burger King sometime in 1988. Anyway, one thing is true of Elvis — he lives on through Detroit's ultimate tribute group, Eastside Elvis and the Motor City Mafia
. The band, which formed in 2002 after a spirited and costumed karaoke performance, features guitarist Bruce Bryson, Tim Taebel, and Tim Suliman, as well as Paul Misuraca as Elvis-ish.
Doors open at 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29, at Cadieux Cafe; 4300 Cadieux Rd., Detroit; 313-882-8586; cadieuxcafe.com. No cover.
