The King lives on in this definitive biography, now in a new edition, by veteran rock writer Dave Marsh. Here are Presley's life and art, laid out and examined from every angle. His story was a grand American symphony gone sour, from his birth, in a humble shack in Tupelo, MS, to his drug-hastened demise in a luxurious Memphis mansion called Graceland.
Elvis contains enough photos to satisfy the hungriest of Presley fans and music historians. Here is the very young boy in overalls with Mom and Dad, already displaying the famous bedroom eyes and sensuous lips. His unprecedented rise to popularity as a musician and entertainer is documented in countless images: signing autographs for anxious female fans; at the piano and at the microphone, guitar in hand. In planes, motels, on TV, in concert, in the army, in love, and in marriage -- it's all captured in these pages.
A complete discography, filmography, and bibliography on works by and about Presley round out Marsh's insightful and incisive text.

"Opens new avenues of thought on Elvis's work ... should not be missed". -- Baltimore SunReseña del editor:
In Elvis, the definitive work on the man and his career, noted music critic Dave Marsh delves into every aspect of Presley's life and art. Presley embodies the heart of American pop culture and Marsh looks at the music - from its roots in gospel and country to its revitalization of those forms. With compassion and penetrating insight, Marsh examines Elvis's trajectory - from poor country boy to superstar, from faded has-been to his triumphant comeback, and to his ultimate decline and tragic end.
