Books Info:

Elvis: The Biography free pdf Elvis Presley is the biggest single entertainment personality in the history of American popular culture. Thirty years after his death in August 1976, he remains the undisputed King of Rock'n'Roll. His talent, charisma, and good humour endeared him to millions. Known the world over by his first name alone, he remains the foremost iconic figure in popular music. Jerry Hopkins has interviewed all those who were close to Elvis- from high school teachers, classmates, old girlfriends, movie directors, agents, recording engineers and disc jockeys- to close friends, bodyguards, sidemen, karate instructors, his doctor, dentist and personal jeweller, to present a comprehensive portrait of this iconic super-celebrity. "Elvis: The Biography" recounts the complete story of Elvis' rise, fall and posthumous legacy- from his poverty-stricken childhood in Tupelo, Mississippi, through his musical development and emergence as the first pop superstar, to his ultimate ascension to the throne of rock'n'roll. This work explores Elvis' unique appeal, his massive influence on contemporary popular culture and recounts many anecdotes and events that combine to provide a matchless impression of an artist who was - and remains - a genuine legend.
