David Bowie impersonates Elvis Presley
Rock legend David Bowie did an Elvis Presley impression as he delivered a Christmas message in a two-hour show on BBC Radio 6.
The star, who shares a January birthday with the King, imitated his southern drawl on the This Is Radio Clash programme - a two hour long show from the surviving members of The Clash, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon.
Bowie, 66, adopted Presley’s signature Southern drawl and said: and I quote: “Hello everybody, this is David Bowie making a telephone call from the US of A.
"At this time of the year I can’t help but remember my British-ness and all the jolly British folk, so here’s to you and have yourselves a Merry little Christmas and a Happy New Year.
"Thank you very much.” Unquote.
