Just when you thought the Elvis phenomena was being put to rest, we are now hearing about another sighting. It seems as if the King of Rock ‘n Roll is still in the building.
Before you are up in arms, we realize that Elvis Presley died in 1977. His wife and their only child, Lisa Marie were left behind. His little girl was only nine years old when he died.
When she grew up and got married, she had children but they never had the opportunity to meet their grandfather.
If his grandson could have done so, he might’ve realized he was actually a chip off the old block. There are bound to be some similarities when you’re part of the just same genetic makeup but for Elvis’ grandson, he is a spitting image.
Lisa Marie’s son, Benjamin Storm Keough was born to her first husband musician Danny Keough. They were married in 1988 and had two children, including a daughter, Danielle Riley.
On June 21, 2019, Lisa Marie posted a family picture from her son’s 30th birthday party.
“Mama Lion with cubs,” she said. The mother of four is cuddled up with her children, dressed up to celebrate her sons big day.
Riley and Benjamin stand to her left, and twins Finley and Harper are in the front. If you take a look at the picture, you will soon recognize Benjamin because he looks an awful lot like his grandfather.
Lisa Marie is very close to her son. They got matching tattoos in 2009 to honor mother’s day and she talked about the design on twitter. “It is a Celtic eternity knot,” she wrote. “Ben (my son) and I got it together in the same place on Mother’s Day 3 years ago.”
Benjamin is more than just a look-alike to his grandfather. He also has a lot of singing talent as well. When he was 17, he was offered a $5 million record deal by universal to make as many as five albums.
He spoke at the Inspiration Awards For Women in London’s Belgravia in 2009 and said the music would be nothing like Elvis. We have yet to hear any updates.
At 26 years old, the musician is bound to gain a lot of popularity, simply because of his family ties. It doesn’t hurt that he also has similar looks to his grandfather that made him popular as well.

Lisa Marie gave an interview in 2012 with CMT. She said, “He does [look like Elvis]! He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny.”
“Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him,” she said. I have to agree.
