Question: Dutch-born Andreas Cornelius van Kujik was one of the most important people in 20th-century music. Why?
Answer: He's Col. Tom Parker, Elvis' manager.
Song: Elvis is Everywhere / Mojo Nixon & Skid Roper
(NOTE: In fact, van Kujik was an illegal alien to America. As "the Colonel," he lived in continual fear that were he ever to leave the States, he would be found out and barred from returning. It is for this reason that Elvis NEVER performed outside of the United States despite the colossal profits that would have resulted. Elvis' Army stint in Germany was the only time the King would ever set foot on foreign soil. Management techniques like this were largely responsible for Presley's estate being worth less than 5 million dollars at his death, after over two decades of stardom and nearly 1 billion records sold.)
