As far as I know it's not fake and the date is correct.
Elvis suffered some kind of infection in Hampton and both the soundboard recording and this pic show there was something wrong...

When did SUN merchandise hit the market?
I am refering to Joe's shirt.

This pic was from a couple of days before and he's got that same "wax figure" look going on in the eyes.

ok thanks!
The question about the Sun T-shirt is interesting .....That's one of the things that made me think it was a fake......

I don't think that is Joe Esposito either.

The photo almost looks fake. It looks like somebody "photo-shopped" their-self into a photo of Elvis.

You can really see the effects of Elvis' recent eye surgery in these photos. He looks a lot more normal. And the leap from "Elvis" to "normal" is quite something.

This pic was discussed in some detail on an earlier thread. I can't remember the thread title or I'd run a search. I recall though that it was proved to be a fake.

Yes it's a fake. The guy in the picture is Billy Poore, a very small-time record producer / promoter who claims to have been friends with Elvis for years and that he visited him at Graceland on numerous occasions. In reality he's a dreamer and a loser. Just about everything he's ever tried his hand at in the music business has failed dramatically. He faked this photo a few years ago for a book he put out on the history of rockabilly.

Forget about it.

Great addition to this thread Swedish. Finally the picture in better quality. I'd also like to apologize to Billy Poore for thinking he was Joe E. But I bet he wouldn't have minded the Diamond nickname.
