"Rex Martin - "super fan"
Postby Steve Morse Thu Feb 07, 2013 3:37 pm

I have just had a telephone call from Anne Nixon, well known and long-time Elvis fan, and writer on Elvis topics.

It is with regret that I have to report that she informed me that Rex was found dead by the police in his home in the Blackpool area, yesterday. The police are trying to trace next of kin.

I knew Rex personally from the early 1970s and visited him about 5 years ago. He had established a website, Elvis - Moments In Time, in recent years and had a vast collection of first generation tapes and cine-film, mostly originated by himself from his many visits to the USA in the 1970s. From the late 1960s, he styled himself as "The Elvis Fanatic" and it was 100% true.

He was a friendly guy with a vast knowledge of the Elvis world. RIP, Rex.

Steve Morse".

Very sad and disquieting news. R.I.P. Rex.
More info as it arrives.

Rex Martin's mother and sister, I believe, are his closest relatives.

Long time friends of Rex will probably turn up at his funeral.

I knew Rex for a comparatively short time but found him to be a gentleman. We exchanged quite a number of emails as we got to know each other.

Rex had a wonderful Elvis collection, and a great memory too.

He will be sadly missed by all who came into contact with him.

Yes, R.I.P. Rex.

Even as we speak Maurice P Colgan is attempting to hack the Elvis web-site of Rex Martin and gain control.

I don't believe that Rex will be perturbed in the slightest.

The pollution stems from the fact that you were the original poster.

I've read his name and seen his picture with Elvis I think but I don't know much about him. It's really somthing that we know about everyone associated with Elvis. Family,friends ,coworkers,fans ,tribute artist's,and lately it seems every other week somebody connected to him dies.

He was a dedicated fan, he also had his own fan-site where I am a member, it is one of one of the last places that still allows Maurice to post..

Because I don't take prisoners or partisan 'moderation'. Besides I only need the Elvis Presley Grapevine, facebook and twitter.

Not to mention the world-wide media. LOL.

This place is for amusement and educating collectors.

Well what a suprise Maurice is over at Rex's site making himself seem more important than he really is. While everybody was running around trying to find Rex's phone # or address, it turns out that lo and behold Maurice had both on an old e-Mail from Rex but has only just now discovered it....Maurice you are a sad senile demented opportunist. Plus a LIAR.

Other folk on Rex's forum had his address and phone numbers for far longer than I knew Rex.

Wake up!

Irrefutable logic and relentless providing of facts destroys you little scamp of a mind.

Yourself and a few others are over there trying to assert your importance in Rex's life, and compete amongst yourselves for ranking.

Don't be silly, Troll. I hardly knew REX.

Others on his Forum and FECC knew REX from the 1960s.

I'm only active in the Elvis world since 1997. But look at mY achievements. LOL.

But it was REX that invited me to join his Forum.

He knew all about the lies, misinformation, controversy and nonsense posted on other forums about me.

So you see weasel I'm ahead of your tiny possee all the time.

I'm the thinking mans/womans Elvis/Beethoven fan. LOL With a great and wicked sense of humour.
