    Curious about Elvis wearing a TURBAN in 1972

    I've seen a few photos from 1972..where Elvis is wearing a TURBAN on his head.He appears to be at a party with Dave Hebler and some children..Does anyone know anything about this??..Why was he wearing a turban?..Does anyone have access to these photos?? Supposedly there are between 8-10 photos that were taken..

    I could be mistaken but I believe EP was attending a karate class with Hebler in California and made mention of the fact that he didn't wash his hair that day and it looked bad, thus the turban.

    Thats the story i have read too, but was it 72? I coul be wrong, but i think it was september 73, i cant check it now, all my magazins are in my sleeping son`s bed room but it was an interview with Dave Hebler in a "Today" elvis magazin a few years ago, i guess there are people on this board that can check that out in a hurry
    Strange guy that Elvis man, look at the close he is wering in the summer time way to go "E"

    Yeah, didn't Hebler say it was so hot and he was wearing this thick overcoat and turban and sweating profusely. Gee, I wonder how come And didn't he, again according to Hebler, do some kind of karate work-out that way? I'm already perspiring just reading about it

    You can date pics. approximately by the jewelry that EP sports.

    Hence, the Turban photos are from 1973.

    The person to contact with the full story, for those burning to know - is the primary source of the pics - Hebler.

    Caveat: if they were sold with copyright(s), you may not get all of the answers that you are looking for.

    This is an example as to how unseen photos / EP personal items all have interesting (hitherto unknown) stories to accompany. It is also one facet of the appeal of these areas of collecting. One must be careful though, photos, by their very nature, can be copied, and rendered less "collectible." If they are truly unseen, one-of-a-kind images -------> they are worth their weight in gold & irreplaceable.

    ---------------------------

    I think these pics. are direct evidence as to the bizarre side / world that EP was living in ........ on a number of levels. Just remember, what may be bizzare to some, is merely "eccentric" to others. EP was, if anything, the epitome of "Eccentric."

    Personally, I'm embarrassed for EP, just looking at them ............... but that may just be me.

    I found the magazin now, it was "Essential Elvis" issue 27 - march/april 2003.
    It says it`s from september 73 (way to go kenny ) it says nothing about the karate work out and the sweating, i have read that too, so i guess it`s in the "Elvis what happend" book.
    It was also the first time Dave meet Elvis.

    Can anyone blow up that badge he has on the turban ? I may be wrong but that turban style and badge looks a bit familiar to me and if it is what I think it is ....maybe I can explain it.

    It may not be Karate but actually a religeous sect that perhaps gave that to E as an honour, much like the Red Indian Chief feathers he was presented with after doing Flaming Star.

    Hard to say which one but probably the one of the moment. Doubt it is the DEA one.

    Kenny -

    FWIW, ......... I for one take your word that they are from The FALL of '73.

    '73 was definitely a given for me, ............... and I do thank you for clarifying the month.

    ---------------

    Generally speaking:

    When one is correct about something, ............. the silence can sometimes be deafening.

    ---------------

    Also, my thanks for the link with the RARE pics. and of EP's rare necklace. An excellent example of a most-likely one-of-a-kind piece probably in private hands. There are other "unusual" necklaces that EP favored from 1973 on. Most, if not all, don't have any true insight into such details. Once again, jewelry is one reliable way to date pics.

    Hey, don't knock the turban, there were some worse fashion disasters than that in the 70's, it was the decade that tasteful clothes forgot !!!!

    I can read..I saw the replies that implied that it was taken in September,1973..however..
    Strange that Elvis and the two other men..are all dressed for winter weather..
    hence:

    Please examine these photos from February,1973...Las Vegas...(note necklace and similar coat)

    I believe the "TURBAN" photos are from February,1973..
    photos #1:With Red West, Ed Parker, J.D. Sumner & Sonny West in Las Vegas February 1973
    photo#2 :In his Las Vegas Hilton suite in February 1973(look at the necklace)
