Elvis Presley.

Elvis Presley was discovered by Ford Prefect and Arthur Dent singing in a bar called The Domain of The King (which was named after him) on an arid alien planet.

Elvis owned a pink spaceship, covered with chrome, with the initials 'EP' on it. He informed Ford that, despite a popular rumour, he was not abducted by aliens — he went with them willingly.
