The name of Elvis probably will never die.
The king of rock and roll was born on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi, into the family of Vernon and Gladys Presley. His mother gave birth to twins, but one of them, Jess Garon, died in childbirth. Therefore, his father gave Elvis another name Aaron.
The American singer and actor is among the three greatest performers of all times and peoples and the greatest vocalists according to Rolling Stone magazine.
The family of Elvis Presley was quite poor, and after in 1938 Elvis's father went to prison it became even more difficult. Since childhood, Elvis grew up surrounded by music and religion: attendance at the church and participation in the church choir were indispensable. And at the age of 11 he was presented with a guitar. Perhaps this was the beginning of his new life path. Elvis worked as a driver, but nonetheless made notes for himself and his relatives.
1956 was a turning point in the fate of Elvis Presley, bringing him not only national but also world fame. The first Presley single on RCA was the sensual blues track “Heartbreak Hotel”.
Presley starred in the movie.Among the films with his participation - "Love me dearly," "Love you" and "Prison Rock", "King Creole."
On May 1, 1967, Presley married with Priscilla Bouillet. At first, Presley obviously enjoyed family life, but soon after the birth of his daughter Lisa-Marie in February 1968, he began to move away from Priscilla. And soon he returned to his usual way of life. In 1972, Priscilla divorced Elvis. Since July 1972 in the life of Presley there is a new permanent friend - Linda Thompson, who remained with him until 1976, despite constant betrayals.
Elvis used drugs and medicines for a long time to be vigorous or, on the contrary, to relax. Soon he began drug addiction, he could not do without pills. And after the break with his wife Priscilla, he was generally depressed. To all of this, in addition, there were decorated schedules and constant tours.
Living with Ginger Alden, with whom he would soon marry, the actor began to grow spiritually. The last years of his life he devoted a lot of time to the spiritual plan.
After dinner on August 16, Alden found him dead in the bathroom. As the doctors said, the cause of his death was an overdose of pills.Many could not believe that the King is dead. In addition, for a long time it was rumored that he was alive.
