Elvis’ band: Jimmy Page, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder. Keith Moon, and others

Elvis Presley Band Introduction

Also: ‘Gullible’ is not in the dictionary!

I saw this on Boing Boing today, and, being an idiot, completely fell for it. That wasn’t bad enough. Later I told several friends about it. Does this town have a laughing stock? I need to turn myself in.

Elvis Presley introduces band fake

This is my feeble defense along with research into the depths of my idiocy:

  • I thought Cheryl Crowe might have been 18-ish, and maybe her career started as a wunderkind bass player (you know, like Tal Wilkenfeld). Nope. When the Elvis video was taken, Crowe would have been 10.
  • Noel Gallagher‘s name rang a bell, but I didn’t place him as the singer for Oasis. He would have been five.
  • I’d never heard of the Sugababes. If I had, I’d like to believe that would have tipped me off. They were negative-ten when this Elvis footage was filmed (and negative-six when he died).

But the rest of them – Stevie Wonder, Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, and Marvin Gaye – it could have happened. Right?

Seriously, I thought I learned my lesson ten years ago when I forwarded to several people Kurt Vonnegut‘s alleged commencement address on the benefits of sunscreen.

Go ahead: Point and laugh.

    Ha! And it isn’t even April Fools Day yet!

    Great song last night. It’s hard to comment on something so personal, and I suspect that is why you didn’t get a ot of feedback.

    Be well…
