A Hair-Raising Story

The hair of Hungary's answer to Elvis Presley, Jimmy Zambo, 42 (known as the "King" to his fans), was stolen from the hospital where he died earlier this week, a Hungarian paper reports. (Ironic timing: Yesterday marked what would have been the real King's 66th birthday.) Zambo, who died a week ago after accidentally shooting himself in the head with a gun, had his hair shaved off before an abortive brain operation, according to the daily Blikk newspaper, which reports that hospital officials said that the pop star's hair had vanished. Overzealous fans are suspected.
