This biography revisits an all American classic; the King of Rock and Roll. The original rock-n-roll rebel, Elvis Presley revolutionized the music industry. His hip-shaking performances made young fans scream, television censors scramble, and parents furious. But Elvis was far more than a sex symbol. Over a period of two decades, he had nearly 40 Top 10 hits. His music influenced The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, and many others. Elvis showed remarkable range as a singer, excelling at rock songs, ballads, rhythm and blues, country, and even gospel. Elvis died of heart failure in 1977 at the age of 42, but his legend and music live on.
