I never in my life heard or read Elvis had a "chicken neck" and I saw the man in person in 1974 and got a kiss and a scarf from him. In Las Vegas. I was 21 and he just turned 39. Guess that gives my age lol. Any remember Priscilla once had a boutiqe in partnership with bill beaulu"s wife. Excuse my spelling. Its been so long I can't remember the name of it. But I do know it was her idea and it gave Elvis room to breath and move. They were actually lighter than they looked. And may I say that he was much better looking in person than pics. Or movies, if you can imagine that. And that year was 1974 he wasn't heavy. I couldn't believe when he came on tv 3 and a half years later.
