Elvis Presley, The Rockin’ Motorcycle King in Photos

Over 60 Photos & Art of the All-American King of Rock Music & Motorcycles

In the Spring of 1976 I was able to meet and quickly interview Elvis Presley at the Graceland guardhouse.

It didn’t hurt that I was also President of the Texas Chapter of the Elvis Presley Graceland Fan Club, but his cousin Harold Loyd (also a Graceland security guard) was very helpful.

On the night I interviewed him, he was excited about his new motorcycle. Linda Thompson was on the back. Another cousin, Billy Smith, had taken off on his cycle and Elvis stopped to ask Harold if he had seen him. Here is a photo I took when they returned back at daylight.
