Feb 16, 1977 Candid - not on candid central...

Didn't see this one on candid central: http://www.elvis-collectors.com/candid-central/feb77.html

Although he's wearing something else, according to my information it's from Feb 16, 1977 as well:

1977 02 16 - Elvis, Dick Grob, Ed Parker.jpg



Is this right?

No, it's not. The photo was taken a day later, according to member Sugarfoot.

Look closely, you'll see a gun neatly tucked into the left side of the "Santa Claus" stage belt Elvis is wearing.

Think he should have been touring America at this time?

No, it's not. But that's what you get when you use that rip-off, down under Elvis web site for your information. It's littered with at least as many factual errors as it is filled with content taken from other sites without permission. It's how they roll. The photo was taken on the last day of the February 1977 tour. Look closely, you'll see a gun neatly tucked into the left side of the "Santa Claus" stage belt Elvis is wearing. Think he should have been touring America? I don't.

Send a PM to postman.

On another FECC discussion more recently, the 2-21-1977 date was agreed upon:
http://www.elvis-collectors.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=86512

But it turns out it was taken in the Savannah garage on Thursday, February 17, 1977, according to member Sugarfoot.

It's a weird photo.

Is he wearing the original belt from the 1975-6 Aztec/"Tooth" suit?? Looks like the buckle but hard to tell.

Nice photo of our guy. He looks pretty good.

Yes, he looks pretty good. If only he had worn these clothes instead of those awful white jumpsuits on stage in 1974-1977...

Dick Grob's book finally helped to date this correctly - and as originally suspected, it was taken in Savannah in the early morning hours of Feb 17th on his arrival into the local DeSoto Hilton. Photo by Savannah Evening Press staff photographer Don Wallbaum.

Is all this information in the Dick Grob book? If not, where is it from?

Your information is usually pretty accurate, I'll ignore the previous topic's attribution and update my post.

Yes, the newspaper clipping is reproduced in the book.

Thanks Sugarfoot. I've made the changes and created a new page:

I've got the Dick Grob book, I just haven't got around to reading it yet...

While he is good-naturedly allowing the photographer the shot, Elvis clearly looks unwell.

Perhaps this is the look of someone essentially being poisoned with pharmaceuticals.

Remember he just deplaned, and was heading to his room for some shut-eye. And the health issues had been noticeable for close to four years at this point.
