“Elvis is a major hero of mine,” said David Bowie in 1996, according to The Ziggy Stardust Companion website. “I was probably stupid enough to believe that having the same birthday as him actually meant something.” And rumor has it that Elvis Presley was impressed by Bowie as well. Country star Dwight Yoakam claims that during a backstage chat in the ‘90s, Bowie “mentioned that just six months before Elvis’ death in 1977, the King had called him out of the blue to discuss Bowie possibly producing his next album.” A slew of local talent comes together at the Elvis & Bowie Birthday Party to celebrate the two legendary showmen, and what might have been.
