ElvisWorld: Fit to Fat in American Fashion

I think that the public is more upset that Elvis got fat than that he died.

People just could not imagine that it wasn’t so great to be the King.

Depression took him from us; food was his last comfort.

and the one thing he needed the most was a banana pb sandwich

made by his Mom. not a cook or maid.

He was never a nostalgia act – all the teen idols of the 70s copied his jumpsuit stage wear.
Leif Garrett, David Cassidy, Shaun Cassidy and Donny Osmond and even the Jackson Five.

In the 50s, Elvis was known for wearing lurid colours on and off the stage – in his real life and in his reel life.
