INTRODUCTION
Born on 8 January 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi, Elvis was one of a set of twins born to Vernon Elvis Presley and Gladys Love Presley. From the very begin-ning, Elvis Aron Presley was a survivor: his brother, Jesse Garon Presley, died six hours after birth. As a boy, Elvis enjoyed singing in the East Heights Assembly of God Church. He first performed publicly while in fifth grade, singing 'Old Shep' on WELO radio, as a reward for taking second place in a talent contest. The family moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where Elvis attended OC Hume High School. While driving a truck for the Crown Electric Company, Elvis stopped by Sun Records Memphis Recording Services, where he paid four dollars to record two songs—'My Happi-ness' and That's When Your Heartache Begins.' He returned there in January 1954 to record 'Casual Love Affair' and I'll Never Stand in Your Way.' This time, Sam Phillips, the head of Sun Records, liked what he heard, and a legendary singing career began. His recordings mounted up, and he became a regional phenomenon, then a national and an inter-national phenomenon.

After television appearances on the Dorsey brothers Stage Show and the Milton Berle Show, Elvis signed a contract with Hal Wallis of Para-mount Pictures to star in three motion pictures. Elvis was to make further television appearances on the Steve Allen, Jackie Gleason and Ed Sullivan variety shows. Among his early hit songs were 'Mystery Train' (1954) and That's MI Right, Mama' (1954) (both with Sun Records); 'I Gota Woman,"Money, Honey,"Heart-break Hotel,' Lawdy Miss Clawdy,"Shake, Rattle and Roll,"Tutti Frutti' and 'Blue Suede Shoes' (all January of 1956, with RCA Records); lailhouse Rock,' All Shook Up,' Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear' and Too Much' (all 1957, with RCA); plus RCA renditions of 'All Shook Up' and 'It's Now or Never.'

In fact, Elvis recorded three dozen tracks in late 1956, many of which were released during his two-year tour of duty with the US Army at the end of the decade. These included love Me Tender,' Don't Be Cruel,' `Ready Teddy,' Rip It Up,' Long Tall Sally' and his greatest hit ever: 'You Ain't Nothin' But a Hound Dog.' His acting future lay in motion pictures, however, and sine Paramount had no immediate project for Elvis, Hal Wallis arranged a deal with the Twentieth Century-Fox studios, and thereafter handled many of Elvis' movie deals.' Elvis' first film for Fox was to be Love Me Tender, co-starring Richard Egan and Deborah Paget. Released on 16 November 1956, it was a smash hit. Through the years, he would star in 30 motion pictures, among which were Loving You (Paramount, 1957); Jailhouse Rock (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1957); King Creole (Para-mount, 1958); GI Blues (Paramount, 1960); Flaming Star (Twentieth Century-Fox, 1960); Wild in the Country (Twentieth Century-Fox, 1961); Blue Hawaii (Para-mount, 1961); Follow That Dream (United Artists, 1962); Kid Galahad (United Artists, 1962); Girls! Girls! Girls! (Paramount, 1962); It Happened at the World's Fair (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1962); Fun in Acapulco (Hal Wallis Productions, 1962); Kissin' Cousins (Metro-Gold-wyn-Mayer, 1964); Viva Las Vegas (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1964); Paradise, Hawaiian Style (Paramount, 1966); Spinout (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1966); Easy Come, Easy Go (Paramount,1967); Double Trouble (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1967); Clambake (United Artists, 1967); Stay Away, Joe (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1968); Speedway (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1968); Live a Little, Love a Little (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1968); Charro! (National General Productions, Inc, 1969); and The Trouble With Girls (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Decem-ber 1969); Change of Habit (NBC-Universal, January 1970).

There were also documentaries such as Elvis: That's the Way It Is (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1970) and Elvis on Tour (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1972), plus a number of television specials, including Aloha From Hawaii (1973). With the revival of his live performance career in 1968, Elvis again began turning out the hit records, as is discussed later in this book. When he died in 1977, Elvis Presley was 42, and yet had lived a life that would require most men several full lifetimes to live. In his worldwide community of fans, he lives on.

Facing page: Elvis Aron Presley had an impoverished childhood that was rich in his paren& love. When he died a wealthy man on 16 August 1977, the world lost one of its greatest entertainers.

Artist description "Presley, Elvis"

Elvis Aaron Presley - The King of Rock'n'Roll

(January 8, 1935, Tupelo, MS – August 16, 1977, Memphis, TN) 
 
Elvis Presley (full name Elvis Aaron Presley) is the most outstanding personality in showbiz ever since, and the most popular entertainer the world has ever seen! His musical influence within music history and its following generations of musicians is still unbroken. His huge 'Blast-Off' in the mid-1950s, the rising star from a simply called 'Hillbilly Cat' (at Sun Records) to a lascivious Rock'n'Roll singer with charisma, a male sex symbol (then at RCA Victor) soon popularized him as "The King of Rock'n'Roll" or simply "The King".
 
His first cut within his tremendous career happened between October 1958 and March 1960 while Elvis was on duty with the U.S. Army and stationed in Germany. It was there in 1959 when he met his later wife Priscilla Beaulieu at age 14. Elvis and Priscilla married on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas (divorce in 1973). Elvis evolved into an all-around entertainer after his Army service and started starring in Hollywood films. 33 movies in total, including the two concert documentaries 'That's The Way It Is' and 'On Tour'. He again shook the world with his 1968 NBC Comeback TV Special after his movie period without any stage appearances.
 
This TV special included the first ever unplugged session presented together with musicians from the early days such as Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. 1973 saw THE TV mega event at all: Elvis Presley, 'Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite'! Elvis' Honolulu appearance, the first time that a show was broadcasted worldwide via satellite! He was ahead of his time! Elvis Presley had 148 US single chart hits, including some so-called double-sider when A- and B-side both hit the charts like his 1956 smash 'Don't Be Cruel b/w Hound Dog', plus 15 EP hits between 1956 and 1977. Two billion of sold media and sound carriers by Elvis Presley is the estimated number! He received 14 Grammy nominations until 1978 and three Grammy for his Gospel interpretations. Elvis was the youngest artist when honored with the Bing Crosby Award (Lifetime Achivement Award) in 1971.
 
He is presented in 5 Halls of Fame (Rock'n'Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Blues and Gospel). Six of his song interpretations are collected in the Grammy Hall of Fame. On top of it all Elvis Presley got the most gold and platinum records and a Diamond-Award. He definetly is the 'Best selling solo artist in U.S. History' (RIAA – Record Industry Association of America)!
