According to Wikipedia, 84 percent of Americans say their lives have in some way been touched by Elvis. I, for one, used to have an Elvis clock with pendulum hips that ticked scandalously.

Coming to Arkansas is Eddie Miles, Grade A Elvis impersonator, to touch a few more lives and keep the music alive in all of our hearts. Critics, including Elvis' drummer, a couple of his guitarists, and lifelong friends, say Miles is one of the best.

He's billed as one of the classier tribute acts, and also plays songs from country legends in his solo performance. If the King really is still alive out there somewhere, he's either awfully pleased with his reputation, or seriously creeped out. Miles returns for another concert on Wednesday, too.

    Recently, a trove of band business cards from the golden era of Arkansas garage bands was discovered and put on eBay. I was able to purchase some of them, including one by a little known 1960s garage band from Little Rock named The Mercenaries. Their record, on the cult favorite MY records label based in Little Rock, was released in early 1967. Their songs, including the atmospheric and heavy “Things Found Here” along with the psychedelic tinged “Take It All” are obscure even by garage rock standards. They were not featured on the 1999 Butler Center MY records compilation and their story has not been told before
