I've got a picture of Jean Gamboa dressed like Elvira...and it always reminds me of Bart - sitting on the tailgate of a truck with that wig on...cause they were gonna play at a bar that the military had been banned from - and Jean gave it to him to wear that night. He sure didn't wanna go in!!
Did you know the stripper on the cover of Tom Waits’ 1976 album, Small Change, is none other than Cassandra Peterson (aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark)? Born in Kansas and raised in Colorado, young Cassandra made a beeline for Las Vegas just days after her 1967 high school graduation, soon becoming the youngest showgirl in Las Vegas history—not to mention the girlfriend of one Elvis Aaron Presley.
