Joe Hughes turned me on to Old Greg when I was in ATL. As well as a great video of a song called "(I want to take you to) a Gay Bar" by an artist I don't know, but its freakin' hilarious, with the Abe Lincoln getup. And slightly disturbing in a good way....
That is the damnably weirdest, freakishly odd but yet powerfully compelling person I've ever seen. It is said Peter Ivers could be this ahhh, er, um avant garde (if such a word can be used in this instance). Damn that guy is some kind of whacked out talent!
Johnny Cash must have gotten a kick out of Andy's impression of the King, as Johnny was among the first wave of entertainers to impersonate Mr Swivel Hips.
Mr. Cash has the deconstruction already figured out as he terms his impression as "an impersonation of a rock 'n roll singer impersonating Elvis"..
Andy Kaufman's SNL appearance lip-synching just that one line from the Mighty Mouse theme is chilling brilliance as well (careful, this clip is LOUD).
