"The Absent King" --> December 1958 !

Sat Feb 09, 2013 4:49 am

Found a cool Army photo today, part of an article about compère Dick Clark's 29th birthday:


LIFE - Dec 22 1958 p39.JPG
Life Magazine - December 22, 1958
Photo: Loomis Dean
THE ABSENT KING of rock 'n' roll, Elvis Presley, sings to a sergeant in Germany where Elvis is a jeep driver. He just learned he had become private first class, and though he has made 19 records that sold a million copies or more each, he was pleased by the $13.57 raise. It means he is making good as a soldier.



You gotta admit -- it's a fantastic photo!

I think I've seen that one before and may have it somewhere. There were a few taken at the time. That guitar shows up a lot over there. I believe it may have been one of the two he had over there and gave to one of the kids that visited before he came home. Here's another from the series.

and another from possibly the same time frame that shows the same guitar

OK, one more with a clearer shot of the guitar, which on closer inspection shows more detailing than the one in the the pic in the dress uniform. They're different guitars

OK, found the copy I had of the original one

Added Loomis Dean photo credit to my post. He was a very well-regarded photographer.

Nice one -- anyone know the date?

Could it be another from December 1958 by Loomis Dean of Life magazine?

I avoid that site because of their reputation for stealing material from other places on the internet.

Thanks for posting this, Doc. I have seen it before, but I'm sure it was a cropped version. Thanks for sharing.
