Elvis Aaron Presley
(January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977)
was one of the most popular American singers of the 20th century. A cultural icon, he is widely known by the single name Elvis. He is often referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or simply "the King".
I was a teen when Elvis came on the scene- so-YES-he was a big deal to me and most young people of those times. I remember well, going to see this movie with this song 'Jailhouse Rock.'
I followed his career over the years and was very saddened when he died so young.
Recently I watched a video with a friend, of The Who performing a song written with Elvis in mind ~ 'Real Good Looking Boy!'
Many songs have been written about Elvis or inspired by Elvis. I love this one by The Who and listen to it often.
Elvis certainly was a 'Real good looking boy' in his early years!
Thank you for the music, Elvis!
Thank you very much!
