A visitor wears a t-shirt adorned with the slogan the late Paul MacLeod, an Elvis-obsessed man who turned his antebellum home into the offbeat museum called Graceland Too, labeled himself as the "world's greatest Elvis fan," Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014 in Holly Springs, Miss. MacLeod, who died July 17, was remembered during a afternoon and evening long memorial at his museum converted house that was filled with an eclectic collection of photos, records, albums and knick-knacks.

HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss. - The Elvis Presley-congested rooms of a north Mississippi roadside museum are missing their kinetic buzz since its owner left the building.

Dozens of people toured Graceland Too on Tuesday, hours after a private funeral for Paul MacLeod. The 71-year-old had billed himself — without regard to apostrophes or correct spelling — as "The universes, galaxys, planets, worlds ultimate Elvis fan."

MacLeod died July 17, two days after police said he shot and killed another local man who tried to force his way into the attraction.

Since 1990, the perpetually caffeinated MacLeod had guided intoxicated college students, international tourists and other adventure seekers through his floor-to-ceiling collection of Elvis memorabilia.

Graceland Too is not affiliated with Presley's final home, the Graceland mansion, about an hour away in Memphis, Tennessee.
