Cancer ends 50-year streak for Elvis performer

Ted Prior, 67, dressed as Elvis Presley holds a guitar as he sits in his home Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2010, in Galloway Township, N.J. This New Year's Eve, for the first time he can remember, Prior won't be gyrating on a stage somewhere, warning someone not to step on his blue suede shoes. Cancer that has spread throughout his body is forcing Prior to miss a scheduled concert in Ocean City ? it's the first time in a 50-year career spanning nearly 10,000 performances that south Jersey's answer to The King has had to miss a show.
