Post here your Elvis' pictures

Worst picture of Elvis from the 70's?

Tue May 09, 2006 11:21 pm

I hate to be so negative but seeing this picture for the first time years ago shocked me. Since then I've been wondering when and where it was taken. Clearly it's a 76 concert, but that's all I can tell. Can anybody give a date and/or place?

I don't think even the infamous Hollywood pics from February 77 are as bad as this... :cry:

I knew when this was taken but sorry I can't remember.
For me the worst elvis pics are tahoe may 76 and kansas city june 77
Especially the tahoe pics

It looks like something from the early June tour of 1976. But it seems Elvis really photographed the worst at the 12 Feb '77 gig. Man, he needed to take a break, and I sure wish he had.

Steve, Elvis was in Memphis on this date. Did you mean August 5 in Fayetteville?

If the shot is from August 5th I really think that the photographer waited for the most unfortunate moment to shoot the photo...

The first pic beneath is also from that particular date. The second one is from one day earlier that tour (also same place).

PS: That belt on pic #2 is way over the top imo.

DJC, it's a damn shame Presley never made it to your clinic!

So?

in all, i do pity elvis' looks


i remember getting really drunk backstage with one of the Gn'R & georgia satellites members, each having six bottles of wine ... or having done too much dope with one comebackin' I. Pop, same, venue, dif'rent hote, 3 weeks laterl .... and that's only two of the hundreds of experiences i've encountered, these last few ys ()

but anyway ... looking at E.P. ... he managed to do alright after like a 1000 concerts in a row ... okay, okay, he was poppin this and poppin' that, so ...? & then he died, he died, died, dropped dead

anyway, pointless thread but quite funny

It looks like a shot from Philly ( June 28th, 1976 ).
