PHOTOS Benjamin Keough, Elvis Presley’s only grandson, looks just like The King

Elvis Presley Grandson

Benjamin Keough never knew his maternal grandfather, Elvis Presley — but he sure gets a good feel for how he looked whenever he catches his reflection: In the words of mother Lisa Marie Presley, the 20-year-old is “without a question” the spitting image of her father.

“He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage,” Lisa Marie told CMT last fall. “Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny. Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him.”

Although Benjamin resembles his grandfather, he has his own style and goals — even though both his mother and father, Danny Keough, are in the music business.

“He’s doing his own thing right now. I’m going to let him decide when he wants to go out and do what he wants to do,” Lisa Marie told Huffington Post last week.

Back in 2009, there were rumors that Ben landed a $5 million record deal… But, four years later, we haven’t seen any results. Lisa Marie didn’t talk specifically about those record rumors, but she did say that Benjamin does things at his own pace.

“He loves to be part of it. He loves touring,” Lisa Marie said of Benjamin’s involvement in music. “It’s on his time frame.”

Although Ben is the only grandson to Elvis and Priscilla Presley, his three sisters bear (more feminine) resemblances to The King. Lisa Marie said her children also remind her of Elvis’ spirit.

“They’ve all got a little bit of him in them,” she told CMT. “They all have their own little traits, and I can just sense it, you know?”

    I would murder people to have eyes like those. Gah, so sexy.

  • Rob Barton

    He has something going for him except for the tatoos.

  • Dani

    I think his lips are the only part of his face that isn’t the spitting image of his grandfather.

    It may be that Ben will portray Elvis in a future Biopic of Elvis.

    The question I have, since he surely looks like his grandfather, is Does He SOUND LIKE HIS GRANDFATHER?..ive been in love with Elvis since I was five years old. I’m “only” 42, so Elvis was not really from my generation but my mothers, and my mother was not an Elvis fan. I learned to love him on my own from one of his movies and it took off from there. The day he died was my grandmothers birthday, and my grandmother was visiting our home. It came on the radio that he had died& my mother& grandmother had a quick discussion in front of me in the kitchen. I went outside& rode my bike in circles around the driveway which runs around the house. I remember being so sad. This was my first experience with death& I knew he was special. What an honor and a privilege to not only look like your grandfather who was not just ELVIS but also a great good man. I hope he embraces it and feels the value in it and can bring to the world the happiness he’s been gifted by his heritage!!! Good luck to him in all he does; no doubt people love him& wish good things for him, Elvis by his good nature& charm& being good to people earned this for him.
