ALL THE K♪NG'S MEN

A Little History about the CoFounder & Curator of this site, by the people who know him Best... DAVE "ELVIS"


A 60+ y/o fan, that in Dec. 1968, when Dave was only 8 y/o, at the insistence of his beloved Mother, Alyce ("LadyBug"), & his older Brother, Gary ("GatorTail"), instantly became a fan of the King, when upon the opening of the '68 Comeback, Elvis turned face-front into the camera and snarled: "If you're looking for trouble, you came to the right place!" A fan was born for life!


Between then & 1977, he was fortunate enough to have seen the King 17 times live! All with his beloved Mother, following Elvis from Maryland to Massachusetts. His experience of seeing Elvis live featured four particular highlights.


In 1971, at the Baltimore Civic Center, his eldest Brother, John ("J.R.") was able to cop tickets for the fourth row, dead center ("press seats" from one of big Bro's contacts). This was his first time seeing the King live, in November 1971, a week before his 10th birthday. Yes, fellow King E-fans, he's a Sag! And for his 10th birthday, as starstruck as he was, his Mother had to physically raise his right arm to receive his prized apache scarf & shake the hand of the King!! (he hasn't washed it since, and he's become left-handed!:)


A year later, another highlight was when Dave was heard to be one of 20,000 screaming Elvis fans recorded live on an RCA live album, "Elvis, Live At Madison Square Garden, NYC, June, 1972." (That's him roaring above 19,999 spellbound E-fans during "Polk Salad"!:)


In 1977, in Landover, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, at the screaming insistence of a 16-year-old Irish lad and his silver-haired, petite, 60-year-old Mother, yelling at the top of their lungs, "POLK SALAD ELVIS! POLK SALAD!!", Elvis stopped the opening piano intro of his closing song, "Can't Help Falling In Love", looked down at him and his Mother as they were leaning up against the stage and asked them, "You want to hear Polk Salad? Polk Salad is what you want to hear?" They replied, "Yes, Elvis, please! Polk Salad!" Elvis turned to the band and instructed them, "you heard 'em, Polk Salad." The opening piano chords of "Can't Help Falling In Love" immediately segued into the opening bass intro of "Polk Salad." Their request was fulfilled! It was at this concert that Dave's eldest Brother John ("J.R.") and sister Sandy ("SangyBo"), after giving up their spectacular seats during Elvis' prime six years earlier, finally had their chance to see The King live. John and Sandy finally joined the ranks of the rest of the family as #1 fans of the #1 man from Tennessee!


Many years later, word about this Elvis anomaly spread, and one day, as Dave and his Mom were home with what was the single greatest radio station in America, WCBS-FM 101.1 playing in the background as they always had, their phone rang. It was DJ Boppin' Bob Shannon calling! He called for them to share there experience over the phone, live on air. Dave's Mom beamed proudly all through it. And thus Dave was deemed, as "The Polk Salad Kid". It was the conclusion of another dream come true.


Subsequently, he has had the pleasure & distinct honor of collaborating with such renowned E-fans as Tom Harrison, Paul Allan, Ginger Johnson, Maria Losito, Paul Dowling, John Greco, Harvey Mandel, Victor Semmel, Richard Minor, Charles Larocco, Claude Laliberte & many, many others, by providing liner notes, song sequence sheets & photographs from his personal collection.


Dave has also been fortunate enough to befriend another renowned publisher and true E-legend, Mr. Jerry Osborne, former owner/editor/publisher of "DISCoveries", in which Dave wrote numerous reviews on 1980's neo-rockabilly, new wave, Shakin' Stevens, Sir Tom Jones (his second all-time fave) and of course, The King. He and his former research company, Starr Productions, were credited for his expert contributions in Osborne's "Elvis Presley Price Guides" as well as in "GoldMine," "Record Finder", "Beckett's Price Guide", "Record Collector Magazine"(UK) and "Jailhouse Rock" (a comprehensive Elvis bootleg discography), among others. He has also been interviewed for projects on Elvis, Tom Jones, and rockabilly by A Current Affair, Entertainment Tonight, Hard Copy, Inside Edition and other syndicated entertainment shows. Probably, however, his most enjoyable contributions, would be those he made with Ms. Joan Deary (RCA, NYC), Ola Wirenstrand, Andrea Munch, Ilka, & Klaus Schmalenback, Helmut "Doc" Radermacher (RCA/BMG, Germany), Lesley and Charley Stanford (RCA/BMG, UK), Roger Semon (Castle/Follow That Dream, formerly of RCA, UK), and finally, Adrienne Reder McElhaney & Danny Hiltenbrand (EPE/Graceland, TN). (Apologies to anyone we may have inadvertently left out!)


In 1984, Dave and his partners at Starr Productions formulated a proposal for a full-length Elvis video to be titled "Elvis On Fire", featuring first-time unreleased footage of "That's The Way It Is" and "On Tour" outtakes. Unfortunately, their project never came to fruition, however from it was born "Elvis The Lost Performances", released by Jerry Shilling Productions (formerly of the "Memphis Mafia"). Thus, Dave and his partners at Starr Productions (Andy Klein, Rocco Sicuranza and Tony Albano), became indirectly responsible for the release of this highly-acclaimed video.


Around this time, Dave branched out and became a professional musician himself, as a rhythm guitarist and background singer for the New York-based, critically acclaimed neo-Rockabilly bands 'The RocKats' and 'Lucky 7'. The RocKats charted one Top 40 record, "Make That Move."


As the years went by, Dave has since lost both his beloved Dad, Jack "The Ripper" & Brother, Gary "Gatortail" to aneurysms, on 6/30/91 & 10/9/13 respectively. He also lost his beloved Mother, "LadyBug" Alyce, to Alzheimer's. Being a devoted Son & family man, as The King was to his beloved Mom & family, Dave's life was ultimately changed over the years. To the point where he & his dear Wife, Suzy, who had already lost her beloved Mother, Norrene("Bubby") & who's amazing Father, Ralph("Pappy"), was also diagnosed with Alzheimer's on the very same day as Dave's amazing Mom, had to amicably & respectively part ways. This was at the turn of the new millennium, on his "Elvis Brother", Gary's birthday, 2/1/00(yes, also Lisa Marie's b'day). Dave also had to forgo his businesses & musical career in order to become a 24/7/365 caregiver for Mother, Alyce. When times were the toughest, even with all the friendships, guidance & help (special note of Thanks to).. Suzy("Snugz"), Father Keith, DR. Ferrigno("Super Doc"), Cousins, Dave("Big D.") & John("Johnny B. Goode"), Mr. Ritacco("The Great One"), Steve("Church Steve"), along with countless others through the years, it may of been Elvis' Gospel music that Most got Dave & his Mom through each & every day. When the King passed away, Alyce used to always tell David, "The King is kneeling at the right hand of God, singing gospel for the Lord in Heaven." On 3/17/06, appropriately on St. Pat's Day, Alyce joined David's beloved Father, Jack("The Ripper"), Brother, Gary("Gatortail"), Elvis & his beloved Mother, Gladys("Satin"), at the pearly gates.


Since then, Dave has happily remarried, appropriately on All Saint's Day, 11/1/11, to Rena("Lil' Pooky") & has continued the musical legacy of his beloved Mother, in whose heart, mind & soul, Elvis was King, is King, & will always be King. Long live The King! Glory, Glory Hallelujah Bay-bah! His Truth Is Rockin' On!!
