Beautiful photo. Of course, you can find a large, crystal clear version of this one in the fantastic FTD book "Flashback".

(Correction: It's not the same photo. The one in "Flashback" was taken about three seconds before or after Elton's photo! :wink: )

Hey Elton, have you recieved my letter yet?

Taken the afternoon of September 26, 1956 en route to the first Tupelo benefit gig -- and almost one year to the day that we lost James Dean in Paso Robles.

One reason Elvis was drawn to a friendship with Adams was certainly due to Nick's connection to James. Presley adored Dean's performance in "Rebel Without A Cause," as did almost any living, breathing human at the time.
