Elvis Presley’s full name is Elvis Aaron Presley. He was one of rock music's dominant performers in the 1950s and '60s, earning himself the title "the King of Rock and Roll." His singing and music style fused country-western music with the rhythm and blues of African American soul to create a whole new music style termed "rockabilly.” This sound continues to inspire and shape modern rock, country, R&B, pop, and much more.
Elvis Presley was born on January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi.
Elvis Presley died on August 16, 1977 at age 42. He was found dead on the bathroom floor of his Graceland mansion by Ginger Alden, his fiancé at the time. Doctors at the time reported that Elvis died of a heart attack, which was likely brought on by his addiction to prescription barbiturates.
Elvis Presley is buried in the Meditation Garden at the Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee.
If Elvis were alive today, he would be 87 years old.
Elvis Presley was 6'0" (about 183 centimeters) tall.
Elvis was married to Priscilla Presley from 1967 to 1973. Elvis met Priscilla in 1959 while he was in the Army and stationed in Germany. Priscilla was 14 when they met while Elvis was 24, which made it illegal for them to marry at the time. However, they still dated for several years and were finally wed on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas.
Elvis Presley starred in 31 feature films as an actor and two documentary films. His first film Love Me Tender is also the name of a ballad he recorded for the film. All of his films were highly successful at the box office, with two of his biggest blockbusters Jailhouse Rock and King Creole now considered movie classics. During the late 1950s, Elvis Presley was one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood.
At the time of his death in 1977, Elvis Presley was worth an estimated $5 million, which converts to over $20 million today.
RCA Records owns all of Elvis' music recordings. RCA Records was bought by BMG and then BMG merged with Sony Music Entertainment to become Sony BMG, so technically Sony BMG owns Elvis' music recordings, but the industry continues to use the RCA Records label for issuing Elvis Presley releases.
