I seem to remember its 1975: the caption I recall from a pic in one of my mags says September (???) Can't recall it now. I have the pic in colour somewhere.

It is not 76 or 77 ...

Here's a clearer, albeit slightly cropped, version of your photo.

Like Scott I've always thought it came from '75, I've known this

image for a very long time as it was in one of the first books I

got just after he died, one of my Mums friends at her work when

she heard that I liked Elvis she gave it to me as a gift.

The plastic cigar holder tells me it's1975 too. I don't think he used this in any other year (?)

And he stopped smoking cigars in '75 too ...

And here's another picture of him riding the same 'Trike' this time with Billy Smith as the Passenger.

BTW, the caption on your photo says that he's riding a 'Quad',

while they may have been around at that time I don't think I've

ever seen a photo of him riding one, but I bet if he had he'd

have a ton of fun playing with it!

The black and white photo was taken on the 14th,1975, appearing in the local paper the next day. Elvis had just come out of isolating himself on the second floor, after the stay at Babtist.

No he didn't - he smoked them throughout his life until the end. Here's one example from Dec 76 in Vegas...

I was waiting for someone to post this!

Check the background of the photo, dude. It says "International Hotel". The hotel became the Hilton in 1971.

The photo has been mislabelled as December 1976 for years.

Elvis did not smoke cigars after 1975.

I agree. From photos I've seen and text I've read, he smoked them for most of his life until the end.

Elvis did not smoke cigars after 1975.


Scott, do you have a resource for this information please?

I'll send you $1000 if you can post a 1976 or 1977 photo of Elvis smoking a cigar. I'll give you as much time as you need to find one.

Scott - first - here's another from March 76, the night he checked out a car wreck.

$1000 would be lovely...

Second, do you really think that pic of Elvis is 1971!

I never said it was. I said the hotel became the Hilton in 1971. I did not speculate as to when the photo was taken.

But it is not December 1976 in Vegas.

I may have to stand corrected. Any source for this pic, btw?

Okay, so early '76 it appears to be.

But Elvis still smoking cigars in '77, right to the end?

Nuh ...

No disrespect intended, but I prefer something a little more authentic ;)

Anyway I could get in on this? ;)

Scott, the photo of Elvis smoking at the car wreck was in the memphis paper. They had an article when it happened.

There also was a display at graceland with the story. It was in 1976. I wish you would have made me that bet. I could use the cash.
