Elvis in the (mostly) gossip magazines #2

View Elvis in the gossip magazines #1

Last year one of our most popular features was a look back at 25 of the "Elvis" covers from various gossip magazines. We now present another group of "Elvis" gossip and other magazine covers.

Before he died in August 1977, Elvis was a popular front cover story for the as popular TV & film "gossip" magazines. His death largely ended the "sensationalist" front page Elvis headlines in these magazines (leading to the even more sensational "Elvis" claims in the conspiracy driven tabloid magazines such as the National Enquirer, Star and Weekly World News).

We hope you enjoy our continuing "visual" look back at what once was an important part of the 'pop culture' Elvis Presley story:
