From the Back Cover
Elvis Aaron Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi on January 8, 1935 to Vernon and Gladys Presley. His twin brother, Jessie Garon, was stillborn... so Elvis grew up as an only child. Little did his parents know that he would also become a living legend. Elvis's musical influences were the pop and country music of the time, the gospel music he heard in church, and the black R&B he absorbed as a Memphis teenager. In 1954, he began his singing career with the legendary Sun Records label in Memphis. In late 1955, his recording contract was sold to RCA Victor. By 1956, he was an international sensation who ushered in a whole new era of American music and popular culture. Music wasn't enough for Elvis... he starred in 33 successful films, made historic television appearances, and knew great acclaim through his live concert performances. Without any of the special privileges his celebrity status might have afforded him, he honorably served his country in the U.S. Army. His talent, good looks, sensuality, charisma, and good humor endeared him to millions, as did the humility and kindness he demonstrated throughout his life. Known the world over, he is regarded as one of the most important figures of twentieth century popular culture. Elvis died at his Memphis home, Graceland, on August 16, 1977. 48 minutes.
