The Croatian Elvis Presley

Rock music was, it would seem, somewhat tolerated in communist Yugoslavia. A Karlo Metikos, using the name Matt Collins, did a cover version of Peggy Sue, which in 1964 became Yugoslavia's first rock record.

I think that he sung it in Croatian, which would raise eyebrows in Lubbock Texas! You can hear the song in the background of this YouTube video at just after the 6 minute mark.
