What do you get when you have a man who sounds exactly like Elvis, and wears a mask to hide his identity performing AFTER Elvis Presley's death in 1977? You get Orion AKA Jimmy Ellis, and his incredible story.

This week, we look at the excellent documentary Orion: The Man Who Would be King. Who was Orion?, What sort of shockwaves did he send in the late 1970's and early 1980's? And just how did it ultimately affect the man behind the mask - Jimmy Ellis?

This is a fascinating documentary, and an incredible story to boot.

Please note: We do drift off for 5 minutes to talk about the latest Cheap Trick album, only because it is so damn good and we couldn't help ourselves.

Anyway, sit back, listen and learn the amazing tale of Orion.
