内容简介

  Almost 30 years after his death, Elvis Presley remains one of the most influential performers and recognized pop culture icons the world over.His then-unprecedented musical style:a fusion of blues, country, pop,bluegrass, and gospel:ushered in the age of rock n' roll and paved the way for generations of musicians and singers to follow.A diverse array of performers :from The Beatles to Bruce Springsteen:cite Elvis as an integral musical influence and inspiration. Not only did Elvis usher in a new genre of music, he also came to represent the growing ssatisfaction young people had with the mores and conventions of the restrictive 1950s. At a time when the top pop stars were Pat Boone and Andy Williams, Elvis'blatant sensuality on stage and his smoldering presence off it made him the anti-establishment poster boy. This biography offers a seldom seen glimpse into the life and career of Elvis, tracing his family life, musical career, films, and legacy. The volume contains a timeline and bibliography. Today, the King lives on in popular culture:on Top 20 lists, in film and television, on the radio, in cyberspace, and yes, even in the countless performances by Elvis impersonators throughout the world.
