Alex Turner's Elvis inspired Quiff

Having just got in from an (amazing!) Arctic Monkeys gig in Manchester, I was intrigued to see that the bands front man Alex Turner has been inspired by 1950's Rock & Roll legend Elvis Presley.
Even today this era is still influencing the formation of the music culture, as Turner appeared in a leather jacket and jeans trading his lengthy hair in for a quiff.

Timeless British bands such as The Beatles, The Clash, The Smiths and The Stone Roses have said to have been of influence for the foundations of the Arctic Monkeys, however Turners love for 60's rock has also provided the roots for the three albums and has definitely been the grounds for his new look!
