December 07, On this day in Elvis history

.

December 07, 1955
Elvis performed at the Lyric Theater, Indianapolis. Elvis and the group got paid $1,000 for 4 shows. Tom Diskin reported to the Colonel that Elvis had done better and better, getting the kids "all hopped up" each night, but he still needed to work on pacing his act.
December 07, 1956
Elvis got a haircut at Jim's Barber Shop on South Main. In the evening he and George Klein went to the radio station WDIA's Goodwill Revue to attend a charity event.
December 07, 1967
Stay Away Joe was completed a few days ago and Elvis, Joe Esposito, Charlie Hodge, and Gee Gee Gambill had been staying at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas. They returned to Memphis today.
December 7, 1970
Elvis returned to Kerr's Sport Shop for more purchases.
December 7, 1975
Elvis performed at the Las Vegas Hilton - Las Vegas, NV
December 7, 1976
Elvis performed at the Las Vegas Hilton - Las Vegas, NV
December 7, 1976 -
Vernon Presley was taken to the hospital after an Elvis concert. He left the hospital two days later after what appeared to be a heart attack.
December 7, 1976 -
Elvis wrote a note, that was later found in his room, that explained his desperate mental state. It read, "I feel so alone sometimes. The night is quiet for me. I would love to be able to sleep. I am glad everyone is gone now. I will probably not rest tonight. I have no need for all of this. Help me Lord."
Wayne Newton claims this letter was written to him, admits he still gets choked up when he casts a glance at the scribbled note. He has this note framed at his Las Vegas home.

Newton, who befriended Elvis when the two singers realized they had dated the same woman, says, "A finer human being never took a breath of air."
