Joe as Elvis, or...

Mike--I was watching Jim Jarmusch's "Mystery Train" last
weekend, and two main things struck me: one, that Joe
Strummer's character reminded me of an English Peter Laughner (possibly an inspiration for Jarmusch--the "Check your gun at the bar" line was also pulled by
Peter), though all the black guys insisted on calling
him Elvis, and two, the holdup scene in the liquor store
has Steve Buscemi surrounded by three people all dead at
relatively young ages (Strummer, Rockets Redglare, and
Rick Aviles) for some strange Stygian effect (and his
character was supposed to be the "cursed" one...).
