ALL SHOOK UP

"Oh no, not again" might be your response to the news that Elvis is back, in view of the recent Presley overkill to mark the 20th anniversary of his death. Yet today's Elvis is Back! via satellite sale at London's Bonhams offers an alternative to the endless diet of Elvis films and concert footage. Following the success of the satellite link-up between Tokyo and London for their Beatles sale, Bonhams are staging a repeat performance between Knightsbridge and Berlin's Hard Rock Cafe. More than 300 lots are set to go under the hammer in the one of the largest collections of Presley paraphernalia ever assembled, with a total estimated price of pounds 500,000. The sale, with prices ranging from pounds 120 to pounds 120,000, reflects every aspect of the King's life, as a child, musician, army conscript and glutton. An autographed photo of Elvis as a bouncing baby is estimated at pounds 4,000, while an ashtray from the Graceland homestead is a snip at just pounds 120. At the more costly end of the market are Elvis's coveted stage suits. His trademark Peacock Suit, handstitched with gold thread and blue rhinestones, is expected to fetch up to pounds 120,000, while his "I Can Dream" suit is set to make a cool pounds 90,000.

Obituary: Jack Kent Cooke

In a place of politicians, lawyers and bureaucrats mostly painted varying shades of grey, Jack Kent Cooke stood out like the Washington monument in a dime store. One reason was his ownership of the Washington Redskins football team, the one successful and universally loved institution in a city riven by failure and racial segregation. More important, though, he brought unpredictability, flamboyance and excitement wherever he went.

Obituary: Tony Zale

Tony Zale grew up in the searing, stinking heat of the steel town of Gary, Indiana, and fought his way out to become one of the greatest middleweight boxing champions of all time.
