Elvis Presley Official Website Elvis Presley Discography Elvis Presley Youtube Channel Not the King of England, not King Crimson, not even King Kong! I am of course referring to the late, the great Elvis Presley, the king of rock n' roll! Elvis was born in 1935, entered the music business in 1953 and played until his untimely and controversial death in 1977. In this time, he has become one of the most influential figures in music of all time. With 23 studio albums and 18 no.1 singles, his deep, trembling voice has become an icon of the century. Even to this day, he inspires many to dress up and impersonate him, (I do a pretty good one after a few cold ones ) to play his music on the radio still, and even appear on jukeboxes and kareoke machines. Elvis' music is truly timeless, and although he passed away 32 years ago, he is and will always be remembered as a great of the industry.
