Elvis Aaron Presley was born on Tuesday, January 8, 1935 in East Tupelo, Mississippi. In September 1948 when Elvis was 13, he and his parents moved to Memphis, Tennessee. After graduating from Humes High School in Memphis, Elvis took odd jobs working as a movie theater usher and a truck driver for Crown Electric Company. He began singing locally as "The Hillbilly Cat", then signed with a local recording company, then in 1955 with RCA. He did much to establish early rock and roll music, bringing black blues singing into the white, teenage mainstream. Teenage girls became hysterical over his blatantly sexual gyrations, particularly the one that got him nicknamed "Elvis the Pelvis" (TV cameras were not permitted to film below his waist). At the time of his death, he had sold more than 600-million singles and albums. In 1956 following his 6 TV appearances on The Dorsey Brothers'" Stage Show" , Elvis was cast in his first acting role in a supporting part in _Love Me Tender (1956)_ (qv), the first of 33 movies he starred in. Critics blasted most of his films, but they did very well at the box-office earning upwards of $150 million total. In 1958, Elvis was drafted into the military where he relocated to Bad Nauheim, Germany. There he met and fell in love with 14-year old army damsel Priscilla Ann Wagner (later known as 'Priscilla Presley' (qv)). Elvis's military service and the "British invasion" of the 1960s reduced his concerts, though not his movie/recording income. Through the 1960s, Elvis settled in Hollywood where he starred in over 20 movies, acting alongside some of the most well known character actors in Hollywood. On February 1, 1968, he and Priscilla had a daughter, 'Lisa Marie Presley' (qv). Elvis made a comeback in the 1970s with live concert appearances starting in early 1970 in Las Vegas with over 57 sold-out shows. Elvis toured throughout the USA appearing on-stage in over 500 live appearances, many of them sold out shows. Sadly, his marriage ended in divorce, and the stress of constantly traveling as well as his increasing weight gain and dependence upon stimulants and depressants took their toll. Elvis Presley died on Tuesday, August 16, 1977 at his mansion in Graceland, near Memphis at age 42. Since his death, his Memphis home Graceland has become a shrine for millions of followers worldwide. Elvis impersonators and purported sightings have become stock subjects for humorists.

Elvis Presley began his career as first performer of rockabilly, an up-tempo fusion of country and rhythm and blues with a strong back beat. His novel versions of existing songs, mixing 'black' and 'white' sounds, made him popular - and controversial - as did his uninhibited stage and television performances. He recorded songs in the rock and roll genre, with tracks like "Jailhouse Rock" and "Hound Dog" later embodying the style. Presley had a versatile voice and had unusually wide success encompassing other genres, including gospel, blues, ballads and pop. To date, he is the only performer to have been inducted into three separate music 'Halls of Fame'. In the 1960s, Presley made the majority of his thirty-three movies - mainly poorly reviewed musicals. 1970 saw a critically-acclaimed return to live music, followed by performances in Las Vegas and across the U.S. Throughout his career, he set records for concert attendance, television ratings and recordings sales. He is one of the best-selling and most influential artists in the history of popular music. His death, at the age of 42, shocked his fans worldwide.

However, according to Lovullo, Elvis remarked they'd have to tape his spots in the middle of the night, knowing that if manager 'Tom Parker (XI)' (qv) had found out, he'd never clear his appearance.

-   'The Beatles' (qv) were admirers of his work and, although 'John Lennon (I)' (qv) said they enjoyed his company very much, Elvis himself, ironically, thought that they were a bad influence on America's youth.

-   Was extremely proud of his Cherokee Indian roots. Wanted to be more open about it but was advised against it, according to some sources by 'Tom Parker (XI)' (qv), since this was around the time that there were still racial tensions in the US. Sometimes the audiences were "deceived with the truth" like in _G.I. Blues (1960)_ (qv) when his character tells about his Cherokee Indian background. In real life his Cherokee Indian roots started with his maternal great-great-great grandmother Morning Dove White and it was even rumored in Memphis that he had Cherokee blood from his father's side of the family as well, though never confirmed.

-   He was allegedly offered roles in _The Rainmaker (1956)_ (qv), _The Defiant Ones (1958)_ (qv), _Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958)_ (qv), _West Side Story (1961)_ (qv), _Sweet Bird of Youth (1962)_ (qv), _The Fastest Guitar Alive (1967)_ (qv), _Midnight Cowboy (1969)_ (qv), _True Grit (1969)_ (qv), _Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)_ (qv), _A Star Is Born (1976)_ (qv) and _Grease (1978)_ (qv).

-   He was a distant cousin of former US President 'Jimmy Carter (I)' (qv). Carter was in office from January 1977 to January 1981. When Elvis died on Tuesday, August 16, 1977, Carter said the next day, "Elvis Presley's death deprived our country of a part of itself. He was unique and irreplaceable".

-   He was temporarily a Shelby County (Tennessee) deputy sheriff.

-   'Hal B. Wallis' (qv), producer of eight of his films, wanted to make a western with Elvis and 'John Wayne (I)' (qv), but it never came about.

-   In 1973 he met with 'Led Zeppelin' (qv) members 'Robert Plant' (qv) and 'John Paul Jones (I)' (qv) in Los Angeles. An idol to the members of Led Zeppelin, Elvis wanted to meet "who was outselling him" at concerts (Zeppelin was in the midst of a record-breaking tour that year). A meeting was arranged with Plant and Jones. Plant was so awestruck at meeting his idol in person that he could barely speak to him. Jones, nearly as awestruck as Plant, made small talk with the "King," and mentioned what a beautiful watch Elvis wore. Elvis, always the generous one, instantly traded his $5,000 gold and diamond watch for Jones' $10 Mickey Mouse watch. This broke the ice with all of them, and they became fast friends. Throughout the early 1970s members of Led Zeppelin even attended a few of Elvis' concerts, and were granted the privilege of sitting in the front row by the King himself.

-   He named his four personal favorite films as: _Rebel Without a Cause (1955)_ (qv), _A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)_ (qv), _Dirty Harry (1971)_ (qv) and _Bullitt (1968)_ (qv).

-   He was drafted into the US Army in 1958, stationed in West Germany and discharged in 1960, achieving the rank of Private First Class. His being the army was a public relations headache, according to army documents released by the Pentagon on Thursday, June 9, 2005. "Elvis Presley will not be released in a manner different from any other inductee serving overseas," the Army's adjutant general wrote to citizens who complained following reports that the rock icon would get an early "good behavior" discharge. When he entered the army at Memphis, Tennessee, on March 24, 1958, there was a public outcry from his fans, and protests flowed to Washington, including a hand-written plea released by the National Archives and Records Administration. "Dear Mamie," one correspondent wrote to then First Lady 'Mamie Eisenhower' (qv). "Will you please, please be so sweet and kind as to ask Ike [President 'Dwight D. Eisenhower' (qv)] to please bring Elvis Presley back to us from the Army? We need him in our entertainment world to make us all laugh." A 1959 Army memo set out the Presley problem: "When Private First Class Presley was first inducted, there was considerable adverse public reaction . . . alleging that he would receive preferential treatment in the Army. This impression has been largely replaced by a public impression of a good soldier serving his military obligation . . . Many teenagers who look up to and emulate Private First Class Presley will . . . follow his example in the performance of their military service".

-   On Monday, December 21, 1970, he paid a visit to President 'Richard Nixon' (qv) at the White House in Washington, D.C. The meeting was initiated by Presley, who wrote Nixon a six-page letter requesting a visit with the President and suggesting that he be made a "Federal Agent-at-Large" in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.

-   More people watched _Elvis: Aloha from Hawaii (1973) (TV)_ (qv) (live via satellite TV broadcast), the first of its' kind, than that watched astronauts 'Neil Armstrong (I)' (qv) and 'Buzz Aldrin' (qv) as they landed and then walked on the moon on July 20, 1969. Interestingly,the US audience didn't view this concert event live. This concert. was seen by much of the world on January 14, 1973. The US audience had to wait almost 3 months, as it was telecast for the first time in the US on April 14, 1973. Several songs, recorded by Elvis, in a studio while he was in Hawaii, were added. The concert was preceded, on NBC, by an Ann Margaret Special.

-   He only performed two concerts outside of the United States of America. Both of them were in Canada. Therefore, all of his concerts were in North America.

-   Once gave a robe to 'Muhammad Ali (I)' (qv). On the back of the robe was stitched "The Peoples Champion", which was Presley's nickname for Ali.

-   His favorite actors were 'Marlon Brando' (qv) and 'James Dean (I)' (qv). In a 1956 interview he said that he considered Dean an acting genius.

-   His mansion, Graceland, is the second most-visited place in United States of America. The first is the White House.

-   'Elia Kazan' (qv) had expressed interest several times in casting Elvis in his films, Elvis' manager 'Tom Parker (XI)' (qv) refused to allow it.

-   Last film he saw at a cinema theatre was _The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)_ (qv).

-   He tried to get a print of _Star Wars (1977)_ (qv) to show his daughter, 'Lisa Marie Presley' (qv), his last full day of life, on Monday, August 15th, 1977.

-   He was a fervent admirer of Rev. Dr. 'Martin Luther King' (qv) and had hoped to meet him in 1966, but the meeting never occurred. Many observers believed that was because his manager, 'Tom Parker (XI)' (qv), didn't want to alienate Elvis' fans in the South, many of whom saw King as an "outside agitator" because of his civil-rights work among Southern blacks.

-   Was a huge fan of the television shows _"The Jeffersons" (1975)_ (qv), _"Good Times" (1974)_ (qv), _"Happy Days" (1974)_ (qv) and _"Flip" (1970)_ (qv).

-   Once an opera singer attended one of his 1950s concerts and met him backstage. The singer told Elvis that he sang like a hillbilly and needed singing lessons. Elvis replied, "Thanks for the advice, but how many of the thousands of people out there tonight came to hear you sing?".

-   His surname was Anglicized from the German Pressler during the Civil War. His ancestor Johann Valentin Pressler emigrated to North America in 1710. Pressler first settled in New York, but later moved to the South. 'Jaime Pressly' (qv) is also a descendant from him. A connection between the Pressley's of 'Oprah Winfrey' (qv)'s great-grandfather and the ancestors of Elvis Presley has been posited but not confirmed. He also had Scottish, Dutch , Cherokee and Jewish ancestry among others. There is a Star of David and a Cross on his mother's grave.

He later confessed to "weeping openly" at the news of Kennedy's death. Later in life, however, he made a more conservative move on the political spectrum. He began singing the praises of President 'Richard Nixon' (qv), and his right-wing streak culminated in a visit to the White House in December 1970. During the visit, Presley was photographed giving the President a handgun, which was (for security reasons) presented but not given. Presley spoke of his admiration for Nixon, revealed his disgust at the hippie counterculture, spoke disparagingly of 'The Beatles' (qv) (he said that having earned their money in America, they had then left for England to promote "anti-American" feelings), fervently expressed his patriotism, offered to infiltrate and go undercover in left-wing hippie groups, asked to be appointed a federal narcotics agent, and even hugged the president twice. Nixon, for his part, was not sure if Presley was serious or not, but granted his request and made him an honorary federal agent. Nixon said he was equally parts bewildered and amused by the encounter, thanked Presley for his support, and the picture of the duo has become one of the most famous photos taken in the White House. On Presley's death in 1977, the former president asked Americans to lower their flags all over the country as a mark of respect.

-   His death on August 16, 1977, was 29 years after baseball athlete and first home-run king, 'Babe Ruth' (qv)'s death, August 16, 1948 and 21 years after actor, 'Bela Lugosi' (qv), August 16, 1956.

-   Reports of the last words spoken by Elvis vary. He ended his last press conference with the words: "I hope I haven't bored you." Other reports say his last words were: "Okay, I won't" (The last words spoken to 'Ginger Alden' (qv), his girlfriend at the time of his death, who told him on the way to the bathroom not to "fall asleep in there.").

-   Elvis owned one of the world's first mobile phones. He had to have one after seeing 'Sean Connery' (qv) use a car phone in the James Bond movie _From Russia with Love (1963)_ (qv).

-   After not having a Top 20 hit single since 1966, Elvis' Nov. 68 "comeback" TV Special spawned the now standard "If I Can Dream", (#13 US Pop). This was followed in 1969 by "Memories" (#35 US Pop), which was also performed on the Special, "In The Ghetto" (#3 US Pop), "Suspicious Minds" (#1 US Pop), and "Don't Cry Daddy" (#6 US Pop).

-   On his first appearance on _"Stage Show" (1954)_ (qv) on Jan. 28, 1956, he sang a medley of "Shake Rattle and Roll" / "Flip Flop and Fly" and later performed "I Got A Woman". That breakthrough performance of "I Got A Woman", to a startled 1956 audience, had not been seen for years, but as of 2010 it is available on YouTube.

-   He and 'Andy Griffith (I)' (qv) debuted together, but at different times, on 'Steve Allen (I)' (qv)'s weekly program _"The Steve Allen Show" (1956)_ (qv), on July 1, 1956. It was 'Steve Allen (I)' (qv)'s second show and Elvis' appearance skyrocketed it in popularity.

-   While Elvis appeared on NBC's _"The Steve Allen Show" (1956)_ (qv), on Sunday, July 1, 1956. Ehis manager Colonel 'Tom Parker (XI)' (qv) was contacted by 'Ed Sullivan (I)' (qv) about Elvis' appearing on his weekly CBS variety show, _"Toast of the Town" (1948)_ (qv), on CBS. Elvis was signed for a then staggering $50,000 for three appearances. This was quite an accomplishment--or lack of foresight--as Sullivan and Allen were broadcast in the same Sunday-evening time slot and had an ongoing "ratings war" against each other. Even more amazing was that Elvis' prestigious record label, RCA Victor , was a subsidiary of the corporation that owned NBC. The NBC logo at that time was the famous RCA Color (TV)Peacock. Elvis already had sold at least 5 million records for RCA-NBC with several hit 45-RPM and 78-RPM records. He also had a best selling LP. Allen would later state that his reason for "giving away" Elvis was that he ran strictly a comedy show. Ironically. the following summer Allen hosted 'Jerry Lee Lewis' (qv) twice. After this, Sullivan was not as interested in biding for Jerry Lee Lewis as he was for Elvis. Jerry Lee did not appear on The Sullivan Show until 1969.

-   An earlier take of Elvis' 1956 hit "I Want You, I Need You,I Love You" is titled "I Need You, I Want You, I Love You". This earlier version of the song appeared on some copies of his debut album titled "Elvis" and was later issued in a 1977 compilation package..

-   During the days following Elvis' death, Philadelphia Phillies' pitcher Tug Mcgraw (father of Tim Mcgraw), with guitar in hand, played a medley of Elvis' songs, on the team bus.

-   In the 1981 theatrical documentary "This Is Elvis", in then previously unseen footage, Elvis sang "Always On My Mind", a No.16 hit from 1972, written for him by Mark James. Just months later, during 1981, Willie Nelson covered the song and it became a Grammy winner and one of Nelson's all time signature hits. As the song was not written specifically for the film, it could not qualify for an Academy Award nomination. The Academy Award winning song for 1981 was (evelope please) "The Theme from "Arthur".

-   Reportedly, in 1969, he received a death threat, just prior to his opening in Las Vegas. Though he had FBI Security, for added protection, on stage, he concealed a "Derringer" pistol in his shoe.

-   During rehearsal for his June 5th 1956 appearance on "The Milton Berle Show", Berle reportedly said to Elvis "Let's see what you can do without the guitar". What resulted was a captivating extended televised performance by Elvis of the not yet recorded "Hound Dog", a song which he had been performing, up to that point, with guitar in hand. By the time of his second appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show", later in 1956, Elvis sang without his guitar, with "The Jordanaires" as his back up vocal group and his back up combo. For the most part, this format would be followed for all of Elvis' on stage performances, for the remainder of his career. In 1969, when he returned to Las Vegas, a full orchestra was added.

-   (June 5 1956) It was after his appearance on _"The Milton Berle Show" (1948) {(#8.13)}_ (qv) that Presley inadvertently earned the nickname "Elvis the Pelvis". While performing his classic "Hound Dog", Presley switched tempo in the middle of the song and began gyrating his hips suggestively. The performance caused such a furore that Berle received a reported 30,000 letters decrying his decision to allow such lewd behavior on national television. During the show Presley was backed by 'Scotty Moore (II)' (qv) (guitar) 'Bill Black (IV)' (qv) (bass) and 'D.J. Fontana' (qv) (drums).

-   Prior to marrying Lisa Marie, Elvis proposed marriage to legendary cult actress Tura Satana. She turned him down. It is believed that Lisa Marie copied Tura Satana's hair style after that.


-   (11/6/54) Radio commercial: The only commercial Elvis ever made for anyone besides RCA Victor, the label for whom he recorded, was for Southern Made Doughnuts.

-   (2002) A remixed version of his 1968 song "A Little Less Conversation" was featured in a Nike commercial. It was released as a single in the U.K., and went straight to number one.

-   [when asked who he sounded like] I don't sound like nobody.

-   [when asked what kind of music he sings] I sing all kinds.

-   I don't like being called Elvis The Pelvis. That's gotta be one of the most childish expressions I've ever heard coming from an adult.

-   Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just sorta do 'em all together, I guess.

-   [his acceptance speech from the 1970 Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Nation Awards] When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was the hero of the comic book. I saw movies, and I was the hero in the movie. So every dream I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times . . . I learned very early in life that "Without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend - without a song". So I keep singing a song. Goodnight. Thank you.

-   There's been a big change in the music field in the last 10 or 12 years. I think everything has improved - the sounds have improved, the musicians have improved, the engineers have definitely improved. I like a lot of the new groups, y'know, 'The Beatles' (qv) and 'The Byrds' (qv) and the . . . whoever, but I really like a lot of the new music, but a lot of it is basically, our music is basically, rock 'n roll music is basically gospel or rhythm and blues. People have been adding to it, adding instruments to it, experimenting with it.

-   I just fell into it, really. My daddy and I were laughing about it the other day. He looked at me and said, "What happened, El? The last thing I remember is I was working in a can factory and you were driving a truck". We all feel the same way about it. Still, it just caught us up.

-   [on performing] It's like a surge of electricity going through you. It's almost like making love, but it's even stronger than that . . . sometimes I think my heart is going to explode.

-   My daddy had seen a lot of people who played guitars and stuff and didn't work, so he said, "You should make up your mind either about being an electrician or playing a guitar, and I never saw a guitar player that was worth a damn".

-   The image is one thing and the human being is another, it's very hard to live up to an image.

-   A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It's my favorite part of the business - live concerts.

-   I've never gotten over what they call stage fright. I go through it every show. I'm pretty concerned, I'm pretty much thinking about the show. I never get completely comfortable with it, and I don't let the people around me get comfortable with it, in that I remind them that it's a new crowd out there, it's a new audience, and they haven't seen us before. So it's got to be like the first time we go on.

-   [at a 1972 press conference in Madison Square Garden] Man, I was tame compared to what they do now, are you kidding? All that I ever did was just jiggle.

-   I want to entertain people. That's my whole life. To my last breath.

-   The police filmed a show one time in Florida because of the PGA, YMCA, or somebody. They thought that I was . . . something. They said, "Man, he's got to be crazy". So they, the police, came out and filmed the show. I couldn't move. I had to stand still. The only thing I could move was my little finger like that. "You ain't nothing but a hound dog crying all the time", y'know, for the whole show.

-   Take care of the fans and they will sure as hell take care of you.

-   I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.

-   I wiggle my shoulders, I shake my legs, I walk up and down the stage, I hop around on one foot. But I never bump and grind. Why, that's vulgar. I'd never do anything vulgar before an audience. My mother would never allow it.

-   'Roy Orbison' (qv) is the greatest singer in the world.

-   [1956] The colored folks been singing it and playing it just like I'm doin' now, man, for more years than I know. They played it like that in their shanties and in their juke joints and nobody paid it no mind 'til I goosed it up. I got it from them. Down in Tupelo, Mississippi, I used to hear old 'Arthur Crudup' (qv) bang his box the way I do now and I said if I ever got to a place I could feel all old Arthur felt, I'd be a music man like nobody ever saw.

-   I get tired of playing a guy who gets into a fight, then starts singing to the guy he's just beat up.

-   I am not the King. Jesus Christ is the King. I'm just an entertainer.

-   Since I was two years old, all I knew was gospel music. That music became such a part of my life it was as natural as dancing. A way to escape from my problems, an my way of release.

-   [on _Blue Hawaii (1961)_ (qv)] In the movie we did a song called the "Hawaiian Wedding Song". And it was so real that it took me ten years before I realized I wasn't married to the chick.

-   Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't goin' away.

-   I sure lost my musical direction in Hollywood. My songs were the same conveyor belt mass production, just like most of my movies were.

-   Just because you look good, don't mean you feel good.

-   I knew by heart all the dialogue of 'James Dean (I)' (qv)'s films; I could watch _Rebel Without a Cause (1955)_ (qv) a hundred times over.

-   Only thing worse than watching a bad movie is being in one.

-   Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.

-   Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine.

-   I can never forget the longing to be someone. I guess if you are poor you always think bigger and want more than those who have everything.

-   [When asked by a reporter in 1972 about his opinion of war protesters] Honey, I'd just as soon keep my own personal views about that to myself. I'm just an entertainer, and I'd rather not say.
