What's the error in this article from 2013 ?

Come to think of it, there might be more than one !

You're right !

Well done !

It was just the last track on his last album.

Also, to say he 'killed Elvis by performing one of his songs' makes no sense whatsoever !

Ah - thanks Luuk !

Couldn't have been written in '77, then !

I hadn't spotted that one !

Perhaps it would be easier to try & spot something that wasn't an error there !

Like we say about some books: the page-numbering is the only correct thing

Can you spot it ?

The blonde girl's right arm is invisable (and Elvis' right hand/fingers look weird)

Elvis - Clothes - Red Velour Shirt from 'Girl Happy' [4].JPG


With a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Dick Grob, & a price tag of $8,216, what could possibly be wrong with the above ?
