Koizumi Rock n’ Roll

That trusty Japanese Prime Minister with the great hair, Junichiro Koizumi, made an appearance today in Graceland with President Bush. Koizumi, a long time fan of Elvis, looked like he was having quite a great time, finally getting the chance to make a pilgrimage to where his rock hero once lived.

Actually, it was more like a kid in a candy store! The level of Koizumi’s excitement bordered on potential saki abuse as he sang songs during press shots, emulated “Pelvis” once or twice, and donned those awesome shades (as seen above) on at least two occasions. If he only had a big camera and his family trailing him in full tourist mode…. Well, let’s leave it there. Nonetheless, it’s great seeing fans express themselves, even letting loose, Prime Minister or not.
