"Elvis was the ultimate star," Lee says. "He had the looks, the charisma, the voice and the songs were great too. Those same things endear him today. When a song is great and delivered the way that he did then it will always be timeless. I'm guessing that won't change ever.
"I am a huge fan and I am fascinated by his private life and trying to understand him as much as I am able. Of course, Elvis never wrote anything about himself so it will always be an interpretation of who I believe he was.
"Once I have what I believe to be the best understanding I try my best to portray that attitude and mood and energy into the songs depending on how he was at the time of the recording.
"In the early years he had huge energy and hypertension. In the later years, the problems, frustrations and sadness showed through. Every song was delivered in a unique way which makes it challenging to get it right and authentic."
"There were 100,000 fans from all around the world who came to see the World Elvis tribute contest at Collingwood," Lee tells me. "I won the event so it was an amazing experience. The people were fantastic too and knew how to have fun.
"Out of all the songs I sing in this show, the one I enjoy the most is There Goes My Everything."
