Remembering Elvis Presley Part 1

On August 16th the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death will be remembered in Memphis, Tennessee at his home called Graceland. Thousands of fans will come and rememeber the man that is the King Of Rock and Roll. In honor of this time I am going to bring a five part series this week. Today will start with Elvis in photos and some facts about him. Different parts of his life will follow everyday.

Elvis Aaron was born on Jaunary 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi to Vernon and Gladys Presley. He had a twin brother, Jesse Garon who died at birth. He shot to fame in the 1950's with songs like: "Heartbreak Hotel", "Hound Dog" and "Don't Be Cruel". He soon took on Hollywood and starred in over 30 movies. He also continued making music and became a Vegas star in the 1970's. He died on August 16, 1977 at his home in Tennessee. He was buried at Graceland and now laying next to his mother, father and grandmother. He had one child, Lisa Marie Presley, who is a singer like her father. He only married one to Priscilla Beaulieu. He is remembered by fans during this special time with Elvis Week and here on this blog.
