Hi. My name is Jim VanHollebeke and yes, I'm also on Facebook! I've been involved in singing and writing for over 30 years. In around 1974 and for 12 yrs thereafter, I authored the "For Elvis Fans Only" column in Goldmine Magazine. Musically, Elvis Presley has always been my biggest hero. With as much time as I've spent listening to his music, I believe he has taught me just about every thing I know! After his death in 1977 I became one of the twenty million fellows to release a 45 rpm Tribute to the King on record. Most of us did this as a sincere statement of appreciation; a salute to his legend and incredible contribution to music worldwide. As an Elvis Tribute artist, I usually concentrated on the recordings and giving special attention to movie songs and other obscure material that I felt deserved more appreciation then it got during earlier and more sensational days. Today, enjoying semi-retirement, I continue my art through products in our Canovanograms operation on the internet and watching 7 grandkids grow up faster than weeds!
