Elvis Presley was born on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo in Mississippi
(the USA), but passes a part of his adolescence to Memphis.
It is there that in 1953, in full musical revolution, it records
two titles to offer to his mother. The owner of Sun Record notices
his devastating style and finds two musicians with whom Elvis
will record his first 78 turns which will make the effect of
a bomb. The following year it signs a contract with RCA and
records tube on tube ("Hound Dog", "Don' T Cruel
Be", "Jailhouse Rock", etc.) and plays in its
first film "Coils to Me Tender". In 1958, it leaves
to make its military service in Europe. It is during this period
that it makes the meeting in Paris de Priscilla Beaulieu. On
his return in 1960, Elvis records two albums and gives a series
in concerts, then directs his career towards the cinema while
turning in an incredible quantity of films of which it records
the bands sounds.
The mitigated success
of its films brings back it into 1968 towards the music and
more mainly in the preparation of a televised show which regilds
its blazon and replaces it first in the heart of the Americans.
Same year 68 sees the birth of his/her only daughter LISA-Marie.
Since 1969, it gives its first series in concerts in Las Vegas
and turns to the four corners of the country. Between two concerts
it records albums which inevitably are classified at the head
of the hits parade. Its divorce, in 1972, and an unrestrained
rate/rhythm push Elvis in extreme cases of his forces and on
August 16, 1977 he dies of a heart attack. The crowd which attends
her funeral and immense and, since her death the unconditional
ones of that which became King, always amount per hundreds of
thousands. It should be said that Elvis has the career most
phenomenal of the history of the rock'n'roll (it has the record
of titles classified in the charts) and marked this music of
his print... for always.
