Living Legend Engelbert Humperdinck Films Special At Westgate Las Vegas
Engelbert also toured the Elvis Museum at the hotel and filmed a segment there as well. He and Elvis were good friends and they often attended each other's shows and spent time together backstage. Elvis confided to his bodyguard that Engelbert was "like the twin brother he had lost at birth." Indeed, the two bore a striking resemblance to each other and even dressed similarly on stage. But Engelbert had the unique hairstyle first -- he came on the music scene and gained recognition with his unusual name and his long black sideburns, the latter of which Elvis "stole" from Engelbert, which Engelbert enjoys teasing about today. The tour of the museum was very nostalgic for him and he enjoyed it immensely.
Engelbert just returned from a tour of England, Israel, and Belgium and he heads to Chile next week to perform.
