Elvis Presley's family moved to Memphis when he was 13. After working as a movie
theater usher and a truck driver, he began singing locally as "The Hillbilly
Cat", then signed with a local recording company, then in 1955 with RCA. He did
much to establish early rock and roll music, bringing black blues singing into
the white, teenage mainstream. Teenage girls became hysterical over his
blatantly sexual gyrations, particularly the one that got him nicknamed "Elvis
the Pelvis" (TV cameras were not permitted to film below his waist). When he
died he had sold over 600-million singles and albums. The first of his 33 films
was Love Me Tender (1956); critics blasted most of his films, but they did very
well at the box-office earning upwards of $150 million. Military service in the
late 1950s and the "British invasion" of the 1960s reduced his concerts, though
not his movie/recording income. He made a comeback in the 1970s, but his
increasing weight and dependence upon stimulants and depressants took their
toll. Since his death his Memphis home Graceland has become a shrine for
followers. Elvis impersonators and purported sightings have become stock
subjects for humorists.
