The Fascinating Last Photographs of Famous People
Elvis Presley This is a snapshot of Elvis pulling into Graceland with girlfriend Ginger Alden August 16, 1977 after a visit with a dentist. The King had been suffering from health problems, but was set to start touring again, with a flight scheduled for that evening. Sadly he never made it.
August 16, 1977
Last known photo taken of Elvis as he enters Graceland in his Stutz Blackhawk around 12:30 a.m. 8/16/1977 after dentist visit. Thru early morning of the 16th he takes care of last minute tour details and relaxes. He is to fly to Portland, ME that p.m. for a show on 17th, then continue the tour. He goes to his suite at Graceland around 7 AM to rest for a PM flight. By late morning, Elvis is dead of heart failure. It is announced by mid-afternoon. Within hours the shock registers around the world.
Elvis Presley's star on the Walk of Fame (photo)
Elvis' star on the Walk of Fame - for HIS CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE RECORDING INDUSTRY; for Early Radio Broadcasts in the ‘50s, and Movies he could have been given a Star for each of these Fields.& maybe his Shows from Vegas/Tahoe, could be stretched to the Live! Theatre Category. Also Elvis on TV in the 50s, and -68 NBC, Aloha and the Final CBS Concert Tour. (he broke viewing records/audience share so many times –Aloha set a Worldwide Audience Record) - perhaps another 2 stars at least by 1977.
