Tupelo MS, United States (1954 – 1977)

Elvis Aaron Presley (Tupelo, Mississippi, January 8, 1935 - Memphis, Tennessee, August 16, 1977), was an American singer, song producer and actor. A cultural icon, he is widely known by the single name Elvis.

Elvis Presley began his music career at Sun Records in the spring of 1954 when Sam Philips recorded Elvis performing several of Elvis’ favorite songs with Scotty Moore (guitar) and Bill Black (bass). One of these covers was a country and western song, “Blue Moon of Kentucky”.
Elvis is the best-selling solo artist of all time in the United States with confirmed 189.2 million records in RIAA shipments.

Before Sam Philips sold Elvis’ contract to rca victor in 1956 for $35,000 they had recorded six two-sided singles. Each of these recordings featured a song on one side and a song on the other. One of the reasons Elvis was so popular was because of his ability to merge attributes of what was perceived to be “white” (C&W) and “black” (R&B) music. An example of this is evident in Elvis’ hit song “Heartbreak Hotel” which reached #1 not only in the charts, but the R&B and C&W charts as well. This was the first time that a single song held the #1 spot in all three charts.

Elvis remains a popular and enigmatic star. His legend has only grown stronger since his death. In fact, there is a widespread belief that Elvis—who was known by his first name—did not die in 1977. Many fans persist in claiming he is still alive, that he went into hiding for various reasons. This claim is allegedly backed up by thousands of so-called Elvis sightings that have occurred in the years since his death, and by the fact that his middle name Aron was misspelled Aaron, with two As, on his tombstone.

    Заслуженный Король! Правда, когда запевает баллады - начинает в сон клонить. А уж религиозные темы, так вообще фейл, моё имхо. И по-моему, их слишком много. [2]
