I almost couldn't believe that airport footage was only a couple of days after the Rapid City show.
Maybe he should've started singing wearing that jogging suit. Then he would've been ahead of his time, it's so 2005. All these rappers with their Jogging Suits.
I'm stunned at how much of a difference only a few days make - those June 77 photo's look NOTHING like his bloated self on EIC. I'm shocked at how quickly he can change. I know meds (especially prednisone/steriods) cause severe bloating/weight gain - I don't know what he was taking to cause the bloating though. wow...I'm just stunned is all.
I've been leaning towards the cortisone/prednisone meds for causing Elvis' bloating all along. They may be others he was taking that also could cause it but from personal experience. those are the badies for weight gain and swelling. They are never ever for long term use.

Yes, at times you could clearly see that Elvis wasn't just heavy (from eating), but also real puffy/bloated because of (as we know now) water retention.
It's unbelievable indeed how his look (and health) could differ from day to day.

I would have to agree with you Matt. The changes in Elvis actually in the last two years, were shocking.
Rosanne, I'd never been on prednisone for more than the 10-day prescription allowance for 4 different times in my life and each time my face puffed up and I was told well I would just have to put up with it. I wasn't on long enough to get more than just a bit bloated body wise or to gain more than a couple of pounds but those times were enough for me to refuse to ever take them again. Was not Elvis allergic to cortisone? In any case, it's a steroid and dangerous.
have to say there were good days and some bad days...the only constant was that his voice never faultered
I think it must make everyone bloated. I thought he was allergic to Codeine??
Yup, you're right Rosanne, it was Codeine...my mistake.
it is also fair to say he can be caught in good poses and bad ones in the same concert.
However, it is hard to find any real bad photos from his final concert.
