Rocky Mills hails from Tramore, Co. Waterford in Ireland and has been an Elvis impersonator for over 50 years. One of his many claims to fame is that he has been singing Elvis songs longer than Elvis himself!
Rocky was honoured by his native Tramore in 2010 when he was asked to be the grand marshal of the Tramore St. Patrick’s Day parade.
Whilst walking by the starting point of parade on the day in question, I was fortunate enough to overhear the following priceless conversation between a young girl and her father, who was obviously a fan, which went as follows:
Girl: “Look Dad, it’s Elvis”
Dad: “Why, that’s not Elvis …… that’s Rocky Mills!”
