Elvis Aaron Presley, in the humblest of circumstances, was born to Vernon and Gladys Presley on January 8, 1935. Elvis’ musical influences were the pop and country music of the time, the gospel music he heard in church and at the all-night gospel sings he frequently attended, and the black R&B he absorbed on historic Beale Street as a Memphis teenager. In 1954, he began his singing career with the legendary Sun Records label in Memphis. By 1956, he was an international sensation. With a sound and style that uniquely combined his diverse musical influences and blurred and challenged the social and racial barriers of the time, he ushered in a whole new era of American music and popular culture. He starred in 33 successful films, made history with his television appearances and specials, and knew great acclaim through his many, often record-breaking, live concert performances on tour and in Las Vegas. Globally, he has sold over one billion records, more than any other artist. His American sales have earned him gold, platinum or multi-platinum awards for 150 different albums and singles, far more than any other artist. Among his many awards and accolades were 14 Grammy nominations (3 wins) from the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, which he received at age 36, and his being named One of the Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Nation for 1970 by the United States Jaycees. His talent, good looks, sensuality, charisma, and goo...more...
The king of rock and roll! He was an American singer who had an effect on world culture rivaled only by The Beatles and Chuck Berry.
"Before Elvis, there was nothing" - John Lennon
A legendary singer. This man was one of the most important forces in all of rock and roll history. Did he invent rock and roll? No, of course not. But he did revolutionize it. To people that say his music in the '50s was "watered down blues and rock and roll", maybe you should get your head checked because you couldn't be any more wrong. He invented his own original sound (he had an enormous hand in creating the rockabilly genre), based off of other artist's songs. Does this make him less talented? No, because while artists who write their own music and lyrics are great (The Beatles being a good example), Elvis had soul, an unbelievable voice, and an incredible energy. Of course, he was drafted in '58, and came back in 1960, and cut a stupendous album, "Elvis Is Back", before starting his '60s movie career that would basically destroy his career. He made some good songs in the '60s, but they were overshadowed by the seemingly infinite amounts of mediocre movies and their equally lackluster soundtrack LPs. The fact that The Beatles had practically taken over the music world at this time didn't help, either. In 1968, everything changed. He was signed to do a TV special (originally planned to be Elvis doing some Christmas songs), but Elvis fought hard to get what he wanted, to let the public know he was still here. The NBC TV special (now dubbed "The '68 Comeback Special"), while containing some Hollywood style musical numbers not very different from the ones in his movies, h...more...

Elvis is the king of rock'n'roll
A great entertainer who glorrified black music. He caused tyrades with women fans with the gyration of his hips (which were band from showing from the waste down on 50's tv due to its sexual conotations).
He starred in several movies and had one daugther.
Elvis's career declined in the 1960's as British rock took the scene. He did have a comeback attempt in 1968. During his later years he indulged in sex, drugs, more drugs, and banana and peanut butter sandwiches. His weight blew up to over 300.
He was rumored to wear more cologne no matter how much he smelled bad.
In August of 1977, he was found by his staff face down in the bathroom with a large amount of fecal matter potruding from his buttocks. The feces was broken away and he was turned over and administered CPR. He was pronounced dead 2 hours later.
He did not die of defecide (Dying while defecating) but yet by a massive heart attack induced by an impacted constipated colon filled with dozens of prescription drugs and fatty foods.
His home has been turned into a museum attracting some 40 million people annually.
Elvis mixed country and R&B together. He made the mainstream appreciate watered down black R&B music.
Elvis was the only man from Northeast Mississippi who could shake his hips and still be loved by rednecks, cops, and hippies.
Elvis Presley was one of the coolest men to have ever lived.
A great man who was never tempted in the same way as jacko. He is undisputed king of Rock 'n' Roll. Basically holds all the records in music and is still number 1 in UK charts to this day.
Only bad point is that he was American.
o look He's number 1 again
