For those who insist that Jimmy was an Elvis impersonater.

Jimmy Hodges Ellis (born Jimmy Hughes Bell, February 26, 1945 - December 12, 1998), who used the stage name Orion at times in his career, was an American singer. His voice was similar to Elvis Presley's, a fact which he and his record company played upon, making some believe that some of his recordings were by Presley, or even that Presley had not died in 1977

In 1972, Jimmy Ellis was once again bitten by the music bug. He called up a friend, Florida record producer Finlay Duncan, and made a demo tape. Duncan sent the record to Singleton, thinking an Elvis soundalike was a good fit for the label that had helped launch Elvis. Singleton was blown away by the demo, and thought that the smalltime Florida producer had somehow convinced the real Elvis to record a session. He wrote and recorded a song called I’m Not Trying to Be Like Elvis. Orion’s album Reborn was then released, with a cover that pictured Ellis (looking just like Elvis, but with a mask on) crawling out of a coffin and onto a stage.

Elvis Presley never recorded a version of it because he died two years before it was written. However, in this interview, Brian May says that the song was a tribute to Elvis: I’m not sure why you think that Elvis sang the song in 1965. What reason do you have to believe this? UPDATE: Michael Durcan has identified this YouTube clip of an Elvis impersonator singing CLTCL, with a photo of Elvis as the only visual accompaniment. Related QuestionsMore Answers Below.

His recording of I’m Trying Not To Sound Like Elvis, seems like a "cri de coeur.
