The King Lives

Elvis' Grandson Inks Record Deal

The King lives again in the form of his 17-year-old grandson, who has scored a $5 million record deal to make up to five albums with Universal, the world's biggest record company. The Daily Mail reports that Benjamin Presley, son of Lisa Marie and musician Danny Keough, won't take a page from the grandfather who died 15 years before he was born. As Benjamin put it, "the music will be nothing like Elvis, nothing like him at all." Ben, who is taking a break from making the first album, hopefully set to release next year, bears a striking resemblance to his gramps, but according to his spokesman, "is a typical 17-year-old" who "doesn't get up before midday and then grunts at you."
