Photograph of Elvis onstage reading P.I. O'Grady's book

Has anyone seen a photograph of Elvis from the summer engagement at the Hilton where he's reading passages out of the book written by John O'Grady? Has anyone here on the board read this book? Is it a worth getting if one can find a copy? Thanks

A photo of Elvis reading from the book appeared in one of Sean Shaver's "Elvis Book" volumes.

O'Grady's history with Elvis (investigating the paternity suit, contributing to Elvis' fascination with police badges and law and order, and attempting to identify and block the sources of prescription drugs) has been documented in several books. Goldman and Guralnick used O'Grady's book as a source.

This jumpsuit was once on display at the Hard Rock Cafe in NYC. It was draped over a throne, which was at the top of a staircase, suspended over the restaurant floor below.

The belt was dangling from the chair. If you stretched, you could touch the belt while standing on the stairs.

There was no protection for the costume at all. I wonder what became of it?

Has anyone ever read the book?

I heard that O'Grady drops a lot of names.

I think the first shot was a CD album cover on Top Acts Vol 4. That CD featured Sept 3rd 1973, but that of course indicates nothing!!
