BB King and Meatloaf were always overweight.Right on,Lee,I respectfully disagree with Octo and King Elvis on this one,and you just hit the nail on the head,Lee,whenever they talk about Elvis,it's never without mentioning drugs or Elvis being overweight at the end of his life,or taking some sort of swipe at the man,and these comments stem from jealousy of the man and his unprecedented accomplishments in the music industry,pure and simple,does anyone think that other,LESS SUCCESSFUL artists weren't jealous of Elvis Presley,there are MANY,and thats the solemn truth,peace out.
Yet, Elvis gained and lost weight through out the mid 70's.
Obviously, they pounded it into the ground for years.
Elvis was ill towards the end of his life and it was just mean.
That is why they picked on him so much because he was good looking.
Jealous because Elvis fans loved him no matter what.
Besides, what does extra weight have to do with the music?
