    They also published a picture taken recently and the gates are still there.
    This is a fascinating story anybody got any further info?

    he looks like he is carrying a little bit of weight, he looks like he has shrunk.

    I believe its July 1975 look at the collar around his neck. For some reason during July '75 tours he wore those Indian collars around his neck.

    Weight was least of his troubles during this time period...
    "How do I get placed in situations like this? Ah hell, I guess it's all part of showbusiness "~ Elvis in his limo on his way to perform in Omaha, NE on June 19th 1977

    I agree, it looks like he has shrunk quite a bit.

    If someone didn't say that that was Elvis, I would've thought it was an Elvis impersonator.

    It might have been the "least of his worries" but it was one of them!

    did elvis ever say he was not botherd about his weight? i am sure it was at the back of his mind along with all the other issues going on in his life at the time!

    I dream a world where man no other man
    will scorn. Where LOVE will bless the earth
    and peace its paths adorn...
