Here is a selection of intriguing photos taken right before Elvis stepped into fame. He was 21 years old.
The one captioned "The Kiss" is one of THE most sexiest pictures I have ever seen. WOW!!
And the couple of him shirtless.... he's not "toned & tight" like the young men of today would be. This is the way most young men looked 'back in my day'. Some had toned biceps & shoulders (from llifting hay bales in the case of my cousins, LOL), but I don't recall ever seeing 6-pack abs or great pecs back then.
I think these photos are awesome and while I really liked much of his music, I was never totally gaw-gaw over him.
