Elvis & The Attractions , Chicago , March 1979 - locations of photos?

The recent appearance by a Keith Morris photo of Elvis in a satirical website prompted a closer look at where it came from. Various sources say it and other photos were taken in Chicago in March 1979. Elvis and the Attractions played the Aragon Ballroom on Saturday March 10th 1979. That venue is on ...

Spice World (1997) is returning to U.K. cinemas in September , giving us all a chance to relish, again, Elvis's brief appearance in it. http://metro.co.uk/2017/08/03/this-is-not-a-drill-spice-world-is-returning-to-cinemas-for-its-20th-anniversary-6826402/amp/ https://scontent.fdub4-1.fna.fbcdn.net/...

The packaging of the Get Happy!! cassette varied in different countries. In the U.K. it was completely different from the vinyl sleeve. https://davidwills.wordpress.com/2009/04/18/massive-barney-bubbles-scoop-clues-to-the-mysteries/ https://davidwills.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/rebeccaandmike56881....

Before the 1991 film (and more recent stage musical) there was the book The Commitments by Roddy Doyle . First published in Dublin in 1987 , the UK edition followed in 1988. I happened on a copy of the paperback edition in a charity shop today. It has a quote on the back from Elvis. Checking further...

Re: T-Bone / Dylan project: Lost On The River

I saw Elvis at the Cambridge festival in 1995 , where he made jokes about spies and sang The Stephen's Day Murders as he thought a Christmas song migh...

Re: Elvis at McCartney White House Tribute, June 2010

From June 2010, when Elvis was part of a McCartney tribute at the White House. This video focused on The Jonas Brothers. Elvis pops up a few times. Getting stills using a smartphone was beyond me back then - glad to rectify that! https://youtu.be/npP0_cj61Mc https://scontent.fdub4-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/...
