Bald Elvis Impersonator 'All Shook Up' Over Death Threats.

The world's only bald, Welsh-speaking, Elvis tribute act has been left all shook up after receiving death threats.

Geraint Benney said he had been receiving the threats from extreme Elvis fans who claim he is showing disrespect to "The King". Benney, 34, from Aberdare, in south Wales, said one fan had even threatened to shoot him. He said: "Some people think my act is disrespectful because I am bald, but being bald makes me stand out.

"If Elvis were alive today I am sure he would have a good old laugh. It's a great pity his fans cannot see that." Benney, whose stage name is Elvis Preseli, added: "Anyway, he might even be bald himself now because he would be 71."

He said he had no plans to give up his show, which involves him cooking burgers on stage. The show charts the music scene since Elvis' death and begins with Benney climbing out of a gold coffin.

He doesn't actually sing any Elvis songs, only songs by other artists which have come out since his death. Benney's manager, Andrew Chainey, said the threats had been coming in since Benney performed at the Elvis Festival in Porthcawl, south Wales.
