Which one of these men is John Smith?

Is John Smith Elvis?

By: Belkis Cuza-Malé






This is the photo that John Smith used for his profile in PalTalk. He is a young John, singing in a celebration of Halloween, according to what somebody had told me. One can also imagine a young Elvis, but there is no way to know it. Others assure that this is not he, but a computerized photo, a joke.






Around two years ago, somebody sent this other photo to me assuring that it could be John Smith. In the photo, he appears as a mature and slim man, with gray hair and almost white beard, singing between friends.

Yes, this man resembles Elvis in many ways: the face, hands, fingers, hair, the jacket with the high neck. When I showed it then to a friend, almost an Elvis' expert, they were surprised and then repeated that it had to be Elvis. Good, this man, that was singing to friends, also resembled very much John to me.


Months ago, while I was talking with John, he commented to me that years back he had fractured a leg. I did not want to investigate the details, nor how nor when the accident happened, but, just as I do with all he says to me, I deposited the data in my "mental file".
Perhaps it was not the chance -- that it does not exist for me -- the one that I take yesterday to find in my papers on Elvis, a tabloid, Weekly World News (July 28, 1992), one of those scandalous one of supermarkets, where it had in the cover a photo of a supposed Elvis, with the leg in a cast, leaning by the back door of a hospital in Nashville, on July of 1992.
The photograph showed a man who could resemble very much an Elvis in his fifties. The dark lenses, nevertheless, avoided to watch his eyes, but the hair and the appearance could very well have been those of the King of Rock and roll.
As all the published articles by the media around the subject, there is not a way to verify anything. That type of sensationalist tabloid goes through life inventing articles to increase its sales. But I am thinking of that photo of the man with the fractured leg, and the image that I know of John Smith.
And sure its appearance between my papers made me remember immediately that detail over the fractured leg that he himself commented to me a year ago. Without a doubt, this could be John Smith. And also Elvis? I leave it to the imagination of you, dear friends.

Hi all,

The picture of the man with the cast was published in a book called the Elvis sightings,i always thought he looked like Elvis where as some of the others look like computer simulations.

Since i last wrote i have now heard John Smith talk and sing and boy does he sound like Elvis.All i can say is although the clouds may block the sun it dont mean its not shinning.
Thank you very much John.KEEP TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS.

The photo of the man with a cast was published in the book The Elvis sightings (Avon Books, 1993), but it appeared first in the Weekly Word News and the editor gives credit to that paper. It means that he broke his leg around July 1992. But the most important, dear Jenkins, is what you said: "Since I last wrote I have now heard John Smith talk and sing and boy does he sound like Elvis."
It is a reason more than enough to suspect we are hearing the real singer.

Hello,
I have not heard John Smith Sing but being a musician I can hear notes and Phrases and I have studied Elvis all my life I know how he sings. Orion was a great singer but I was able to tell in 2 lines that it was not Elvis. I will be able to tell everyone as soon as I hear John Smith if it is the King or not. Hope to hear him soon. Thanks

To dream the impossible dream. I think it is time to tell the real story of John Smith or should I say Ronnie Fleetwood.

Truely It It has been a constant battle of growing beards and wearing discuises to just to keeep from being recognised from the public eye. I did what I had todo I know that its been 30 years and Now Im living the life I had intended . I needed to get away from it all . I know people have seen me and theres been stories about this and that . I think that with everything aside it was the best decision I have made. I mean I still keep in touch with my baby and a few friends that have remained by my side thoughout all and everything.

You will be hearing from me again soon one day very soon.

I did put out a recent audio conversation with a friend telling a bit of the the things that have partakin in the past few years . I will keep you posted as I see fit. God Bless

Hi John,

You did the right thing mate by getting away from it all. You deserve to live your life in peace. I too had to get away, far away.

I was in touch with the niece of your friend P Sayers about four years ago and she brought me up to speed. I always knew the truth though.

We are kindred spirits and also our names are linked.

Look after yourself!
