Years of prescription drug abuse severely compromised his health, and he died suddenly in at his Graceland estate at the age of With his rise from poverty to significant fame, Presley's success seemed to epitomize the American Dream.
He won three Grammy Awards , received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at age 36, and has been inducted into multiple music halls of fame.
Presley holds several records; the most RIAA certified gold and platinum albums, the most albums charted on the Billboard , and the most number-one albums by a solo artist on the UK Albums Chart and the most number-one singles by any act on the UK Singles Chart.
In , Presley was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The family attended an Assembly of God church, where he found his initial musical inspiration.
Presley's father, Vernon, was of German  or Scottish origin. Vernon moved from one odd job to the next, evincing little ambition.
In , they lost their home after Vernon was found guilty of altering a check written by his landowner and sometime-employer.
He was jailed for eight months, while Gladys and Elvis moved in with relatives. In September , Presley entered first grade at East Tupelo Consolidated, where his teachers regarded him as "average".
The contest, held at the Mississippi— Alabama Fair and Dairy Show on October 3, , was his first public performance.
The ten-year-old Presley was dressed as a cowboy; he stood on a chair to reach the microphone and sang "Old Shep".
He recalled placing fifth. Presley recalled, "I took the guitar, and I watched people, and I learned to play a little bit.
But I would never sing in public. I was very shy about it. In September , Presley entered a new school, Milam, for sixth grade; he was regarded as a loner.
The following year, he began bringing his guitar to school on a daily basis. He played and sang during lunchtime, and was often teased as a "trashy" kid who played hillbilly music.
By then, the family was living in a largely black neighborhood. He was described as "crazy about music" by Slim's younger brother, who was one of Presley's classmates and often took him into the station.
Slim supplemented Presley's guitar instruction by demonstrating chord techniques. Presley was overcome by stage fright the first time, but succeeded in performing the following week.
In November , the family moved to Memphis, Tennessee. After residing for nearly a year in rooming houses , they were granted a two-bedroom apartment in the public housing complex known as the Lauderdale Courts.
Humes High School , Presley received only a C in music in eighth grade. When his music teacher told him that he had no aptitude for singing, he brought in his guitar the next day and sang a recent hit, "Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Me", to prove otherwise.
A classmate later recalled that the teacher "agreed that Elvis was right when he said that she didn't appreciate his kind of singing". They and three other boys—including two future rockabilly pioneers, brothers Dorsey and Johnny Burnette —formed a loose musical collective that played frequently around the Courts.
During his junior year, Presley began to stand out more among his classmates, largely because of his appearance: he grew his sideburns and styled his hair with rose oil and Vaseline.
In his free time, he would head down to Beale Street , the heart of Memphis's thriving blues scene, and gaze longingly at the wild, flashy clothes in the windows of Lansky Brothers.
By his senior year, he was wearing those clothes. Presley recalled that the performance did much for his reputation: "I wasn't popular in school I failed music—only thing I ever failed.
And then they entered me in this talent show It was amazing how popular I became in school after that. Presley, who received no formal music training and could not read music, studied and played by ear.
He also frequented record stores that provided jukeboxes and listening booths to customers. King recalled that he had known Presley before he was popular when they both used to frequent Beale Street.
In August , Presley checked into the offices of Sun Records. He aimed to pay for a few minutes of studio time to record a two-sided acetate disc : " My Happiness " and " That's When Your Heartaches Begin ".
He later claimed that he intended the record as a birthday gift for his mother, or that he was merely interested in what he "sounded like", although there was a much cheaper, amateur record-making service at a nearby general store.
Biographer Peter Guralnick argued that he chose Sun in the hope of being discovered. Asked by receptionist Marion Keisker what kind of singer he was, Presley responded, "I sing all kinds.
He explained to his father, "They told me I couldn't sing. Bond rejected him after a tryout, advising Presley to stick to truck driving "because you're never going to make it as a singer".
Phillips, meanwhile, was always on the lookout for someone who could bring to a broader audience the sound of the black musicians on whom Sun focused.
Presley came by the studio but was unable to do it justice. Despite this, Phillips asked Presley to sing as many numbers as he knew.
He was sufficiently affected by what he heard to invite two local musicians, guitarist Winfield "Scotty" Moore and upright bass player Bill Black , to work something up with Presley for a recording session.
The session held the evening of July 5, proved entirely unfruitful until late in the night. As they were about to abort and go home, Presley took his guitar and launched into a blues number, Arthur Crudup's " That's All Right ".
Moore recalled, "All of a sudden, Elvis just started singing this song, jumping around and acting the fool, and then Bill picked up his bass, and he started acting the fool, too, and I started playing with them.
Sam, I think, had the door to the control booth open The interest was such that Phillips played the record repeatedly during the remaining two hours of his show.
Interviewing Presley on-air, Phillips asked him what high school he attended to clarify his color for the many callers who had assumed that he was black.
The trio played publicly for the first time on July 17 at the Bon Air club—Presley still sporting his child-size guitar.
A combination of his strong response to rhythm and nervousness at playing before a large crowd led Presley to shake his legs as he performed: his wide-cut pants emphasized his movements, causing young women in the audience to start screaming.
From August through October, they played frequently at the Eagle's Nest club and returned to Sun Studio for more recording sessions,  and Presley quickly grew more confident on stage.
According to Moore, "His movement was a natural thing, but he was also very conscious of what got a reaction.
He'd do something one time and then he would expand on it real quick. In November , Presley performed on Louisiana Hayride —the Opry ' s chief, and more adventurous, rival.
The Shreveport -based show was broadcast to radio stations in 28 states. Presley had another attack of nerves during the first set, which drew a muted reaction.
A more composed and energetic second set inspired an enthusiastic response. Fontana brought a new element, complementing Presley's movements with accented beats that he had mastered playing in strip clubs.
By early , Presley's regular Hayride appearances, constant touring, and well-received record releases had made him a regional star, from Tennessee to West Texas.
In January, Neal signed a formal management contract with Presley and brought him to the attention of Colonel Tom Parker , whom he considered the best promoter in the music business.
Parker—who claimed to be from West Virginia he was actually Dutch —had acquired an honorary colonel's commission from country singer turned Louisiana governor Jimmie Davis.
Having successfully managed top country star Eddy Arnold , Parker was working with the new number-one country singer, Hank Snow. Parker booked Presley on Snow's February tour.
I just didn't know what to make of it. There was just no reference point in the culture to compare it. According to Neal, many country-music disc jockeys would not play it because he sounded too much like a black artist and none of the rhythm-and-blues stations would touch him because "he sounded too much like a hillbilly.
Presley renewed Neal's management contract in August , simultaneously appointing Parker as his special adviser. So many of them, through some sort of jealousy, would practically hate him.
There were occasions in some towns in Texas when we'd have to be sure to have a police guard because somebody'd always try to take a crack at him.
They'd get a gang and try to waylay him or something. In mid-October, they played a few shows in support of Bill Haley , whose " Rock Around the Clock " track had been a number-one hit the previous year.
Haley observed that Presley had a natural feel for rhythm, and advised him to sing fewer ballads. Songwriters were obliged to forgo one-third of their customary royalties in exchange for having him perform their compositions.
The program, produced in New York, was hosted on alternate weeks by big band leaders and brothers Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey. The sessions yielded eight songs, including a cover of Carl Perkins ' rockabilly anthem " Blue Suede Shoes ".
RCA released Presley's self-titled debut album on March Joined by five previously unreleased Sun recordings, its seven recently recorded tracks were of a broad variety.
There were two country songs and a bouncy pop tune. As described by Hilburn, these "were the most revealing of all.
Unlike many white artists He not only injected the tunes with his own vocal character but also made guitar, not piano, the lead instrument in all three cases.
Rodman argued that the album's cover image, "of Elvis having the time of his life on stage with a guitar in his hands played a crucial role in positioning the guitar His performance, on the deck of the USS Hancock in San Diego , California, prompted cheers and screams from an audience of sailors and their dates.
It became the new closing number of his act. Edgar Hoover. It warned that "Presley is a definite danger to the security of the United States.
After the show, more than 1, teenagers tried to gang into Presley's room at the auditorium. Indications of the harm Presley did just in La Crosse were the two high school girls Berle persuaded Presley to leave his guitar backstage, advising, "Let 'em see you, son.
Presley has no discernible singing ability. His phrasing, if it can be called that, consists of the stereotyped variations that go with a beginner's aria in a bathtub.
His one specialty is an accented movement of the body Elvis, who rotates his pelvis Allen, no fan of rock and roll, introduced a "new Elvis" in a white bow tie and black tails.
Presley sang "Hound Dog" for less than a minute to a basset hound wearing a top hat and bow tie. As described by television historian Jake Austen, "Allen thought Presley was talentless and absurd I don't want to do anything to make people dislike me.
I think TV is important so I'm going to go along, but I won't be able to give the kind of show I do in a personal appearance.
Pressed on whether he had learned anything from the criticism to which he was being subjected, Presley responded, "No, I haven't, I don't feel like I'm doing anything wrong.
I don't see how any type of music would have any bad influence on people when it's only music. I mean, how would rock 'n' roll music make anyone rebel against their parents?
A few days later, Presley made an outdoor concert appearance in Memphis, at which he announced, "You know, those people in New York are not gonna change me none.
I'm gonna show you what the real Elvis is like tonight. Throughout the following performance, he largely kept still, except for wiggling his little finger suggestively in mockery of the order.
According to Elvis legend, Presley was shot only from the waist up. Watching clips of the Allen and Berle shows with his producer, Sullivan had opined that Presley "got some kind of device hanging down below the crotch of his pants—so when he moves his legs back and forth you can see the outline of his cock.
I think it's a Coke bottle. We just can't have this on a Sunday night. This is a family show! Though the camerawork was relatively discreet during his debut, with leg-concealing closeups when he danced, the studio audience reacted in customary style: screaming.
Accompanying Presley's rise to fame, a cultural shift was taking place that he both helped inspire and came to symbolize.
Igniting the "biggest pop craze since Glenn Miller and Frank Sinatra Presley brought rock'n'roll into the mainstream of popular culture", writes historian Marty Jezer.
Presley, more than anyone else, gave the young a belief in themselves as a distinct and somehow unified generation—the first in America ever to feel the power of an integrated youth culture.
The audience response at Presley's live shows became increasingly fevered. Moore recalled, "He'd start out, 'You ain't nothin' but a Hound Dog,' and they'd just go to pieces.
They'd always react the same way. There'd be a riot every time. The album includes "Old Shep", which he sang at the talent show in , and which now marked the first time he played piano on an RCA session.
According to Guralnick, one can hear "in the halting chords and the somewhat stumbling rhythm both the unmistakable emotion and the equally unmistakable valuing of emotion over technique.
Presley returned to the Sullivan show at its main studio in New York, hosted this time by its namesake, on October After the performance, crowds in Nashville and St.
Louis burned him in effigy. Though he was not top-billed, the film's original title— The Reno Brothers —was changed to capitalize on his latest number-one record: "Love Me Tender" had hit the top of the charts earlier that month.
To further take advantage of Presley's popularity, four musical numbers were added to what was originally a straight acting role.
The film was panned by the critics but did very well at the box office. Though Phillips no longer had the right to release any Presley material, he made sure that the session was captured on tape.
The results, none officially released for 25 years, became known as the " Million Dollar Quartet " recordings. Presley made his third and final Ed Sullivan Show appearance on January 6, —on this occasion indeed shot only down to the waist.
Some commentators have claimed that Parker orchestrated an appearance of censorship to generate publicity. Leaving behind the bland clothes he had worn on the first two shows, he stepped out in the outlandish costume of a pasha, if not a harem girl.
From the make-up over his eyes, the hair falling in his face, the overwhelmingly sexual cast of his mouth, he was playing Rudolph Valentino in The Sheik , with all stops out.
At the end of the show, Sullivan declared Presley "a real decent, fine boy". Already an international star, he was attracting fans even where his music was not officially released.
The title track was written by Leiber and Stoller, who were then retained to write four of the six songs recorded at the sessions for Jailhouse Rock , Presley's next film.
The songwriting team effectively produced the Jailhouse sessions and developed a close working relationship with Presley, who came to regard them as his "good-luck charm".
Presley undertook three brief tours during the year, continuing to generate a crazed audience response.
In a magazine article, he decried rock and roll as "brutal, ugly, degenerate, vicious. It fosters almost totally negative and destructive reactions in young people.
It smells phoney and false. It is sung, played and written, for the most part, by cretinous goons.
This rancid-smelling aphrodisiac I deplore. He has a right to say what he wants to say. He is a great success and a fine actor, but I think he shouldn't have said it.
This is a trend, just the same as he faced when he started years ago. Leiber and Stoller were again in the studio for the recording of Elvis' Christmas Album.
Toward the end of the session, they wrote a song on the spot at Presley's request: " Santa Claus Is Back in Town ", an innuendo-laden blues.
Though they were brought back on a per diem basis a few weeks later, it was clear that they had not been part of Presley's inner circle for some time.
A couple of weeks into the new year, " Don't ", another Leiber and Stoller tune, became Presley's tenth number-one seller.
It had been only 21 months since "Heartbreak Hotel" had brought him to the top for the first time. Recording sessions for the King Creole soundtrack were held in Hollywood in mid-January Leiber and Stoller provided three songs and were again on hand, but it would be the last time they and Presley worked closely together.
They kept him separate. On March 24, , Presley was drafted into the U. His arrival was a major media event. Hundreds of people descended on Presley as he stepped from the bus; photographers then accompanied him into the fort.
Presley commenced basic training at Fort Hood , Texas. During a two-week leave in early June, he recorded five songs in Nashville. Presley was granted emergency leave to visit her and arrived in Memphis on August Two days later, she died of heart failure at the age of Presley was devastated and never the same;   their relationship had remained extremely close—even into his adulthood, they would use baby talk with each other and Presley would address her with pet names.
He became "practically evangelical about their benefits", not only for energy but for "strength" and weight loss as well, and many of his friends in the outfit joined him in indulging.
It became a lifelong interest, which he later included in his live performances. He donated his Army pay to charity, purchased TV sets for the base, and bought an extra set of fatigues for everyone in his outfit.
While in Friedberg, Presley met year-old Priscilla Beaulieu. They would eventually marry after a seven-and-a-half-year courtship. In Special Services , he would have been able to give musical performances and remain in touch with the public, but Parker had convinced him that to gain popular respect, he should serve his country as a regular soldier.
Armed with a substantial amount of unreleased material, they kept up a regular stream of successful releases.
Presley returned to the United States on March 2, , and was honorably discharged three days later with the rank of sergeant.
The album features several songs described by Greil Marcus as full of Chicago blues "menace, driven by Presley's own super-miked acoustic guitar, brilliant playing by Scotty Moore, and demonic sax work from Boots Randolph.
Elvis' singing wasn't sexy, it was pornographic. Presley returned to television on May 12 as a guest on The Frank Sinatra Timex Special —ironic for both stars, given Sinatra's earlier excoriation of rock and roll.
Also known as Welcome Home Elvis , the show had been taped in late March, the only time all year Presley performed in front of an audience.
The broadcast drew an enormous viewership. Blues , the soundtrack to Presley's first film since his return, was a number-one album in October.
It reached number 13 on the U. In February , Presley performed two shows for a benefit event in Memphis, on behalf of 24 local charities. During a luncheon preceding the event, RCA presented him with a plaque certifying worldwide sales of over 75 million records.
Presaging much of what was to come from Presley himself over the next half-decade, the album is largely "a pleasant, unthreatening pastiche of the music that had once been Elvis' birthright".
Another benefit concert, raising money for a Pearl Harbor memorial, was staged on March 25, in Hawaii. It was to be Presley's last public performance for seven years.
Parker had by now pushed Presley into a heavy film making schedule, focused on formulaic, modestly budgeted musical comedies. Presley, at first, insisted on pursuing higher roles, but when two films in a more dramatic vein— Flaming Star and Wild in the Country —were less commercially successful, he reverted to the formula.
Among the 27 films he made during the s, there were a few further exceptions. Hal Wallis , who produced nine of them, declared, "A Presley picture is the only sure thing in Hollywood.
Of Presley's films in the s, 15 were accompanied by soundtrack albums and another 5 by soundtrack EPs. The films' rapid production and release schedules—he frequently starred in three a year—affected his music.
According to Jerry Leiber, the soundtrack formula was already evident before Presley left for the Army: "three ballads, one medium-tempo [number], one up-tempo, and one break blues boogie".
But by and large, according to biographer Jerry Hopkins , the numbers seemed to be "written on order by men who never really understood Elvis or rock and roll".
In the first half of the decade, three of Presley's soundtrack albums were ranked number one on the pop charts, and a few of his most popular songs came from his films, such as " Can't Help Falling in Love " and " Return to Sender " But, as with artistic merit, the commercial returns steadily diminished.
During a five-year span— through —Presley had only one top-ten hit: " Crying in the Chapel " , a gospel number recorded back in As for non-film albums, between the June release of Pot Luck and the November release of the soundtrack to the television special that signaled his comeback, only one LP of new material by Presley was issued: the gospel album How Great Thou Art Shortly before Christmas , more than seven years since they first met, Presley proposed to Priscilla Beaulieu.
They were married on May 1, , in a brief ceremony in their suite at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas.
It was not until October , when the Clambake soundtrack LP registered record low sales for a new Presley album, that RCA executives recognized a problem.
Presley's only child, Lisa Marie , was born on February 1, , during a period when he had grown deeply unhappy with his career.
Parker had already shifted his plans to television, where Presley had not appeared since the Sinatra Timex show in He maneuvered a deal with NBC that committed the network to both finance a theatrical feature and broadcast a Christmas special.
Recorded in late June in Burbank, California , the special, simply called Elvis , aired on December 3, Later known as the '68 Comeback Special, the show featured lavishly staged studio productions as well as songs performed with a band in front of a small audience—Presley's first live performances since The live segments saw Presley dressed in tight black leather, singing and playing guitar in an uninhibited style reminiscent of his early rock and roll days.
Director and co-producer Steve Binder had worked hard to produce a show that was far from the hour of Christmas songs Parker had originally planned.
He sang with the kind of power people no longer expect of rock 'n' roll singers. He moved his body with a lack of pretension and effort that must have made Jim Morrison green with envy.
The soundtrack album rose into the top ten. According to friend Jerry Schilling , the special reminded Presley of what "he had not been able to do for years, being able to choose the people; being able to choose what songs and not being told what had to be on the soundtrack.
He was out of prison, man. I give you my word I will never sing a song I don't believe in. Buoyed by the experience of the Comeback Special, Presley engaged in a prolific series of recording sessions at American Sound Studio , which led to the acclaimed From Elvis in Memphis.
Released in June , it was his first secular, non-soundtrack album from a dedicated period in the studio in eight years. As described by Dave Marsh, it is "a masterpiece in which Presley immediately catches up with pop music trends that had seemed to pass him by during the movie years.
He sings country songs, soul songs and rockers with real conviction, a stunning achievement. Presley was keen to resume regular live performing.
Following the success of the Comeback Special, offers came in from around the world. He responded, "That's fine for me, now how much can you get for Elvis?
He was scheduled to perform 57 shows over four weeks beginning July Moore, Fontana, and the Jordanaires declined to participate, afraid of losing the lucrative session work they had in Nashville.
Presley assembled new, top-notch accompaniment, led by guitarist James Burton and including two gospel groups, The Imperials and Sweet Inspirations.
Parker, who intended to make Presley's return the show business event of the year, oversaw a major promotional push. For his part, hotel owner Kirk Kerkorian arranged to send his own plane to New York to fly in rock journalists for the debut performance.
Presley took to the stage without introduction. The audience of 2,, including many celebrities, gave him a standing ovation before he sang a note and another after his performance.
A third followed his encore, "Can't Help Falling in Love" a song that would be his closing number for much of the s.
Cassandra Peterson , later television's Elvira, met Presley during this period in Las Vegas, where she was working as a showgirl.
She recalled of their encounter, "He was so anti-drug when I met him. I mentioned to him that I smoked marijuana, and he was just appalled.
He said, 'Don't ever do that again. Several of his family members had been alcoholics, a fate he intended to avoid. Presley returned to the International early in for the first of the year's two-month-long engagements, performing two shows a night.
Ferner wurden sechs seiner Songinterpretationen als historisch besonders bedeutsam in die Grammy Hall of Fame aufgenommen. Zwischen und wirkte Presley zudem in 31 Spielfilmen mit.
Elvis Aaron  Presley wurde am 8. Juni und der Textilarbeiterin Gladys Love Presley geb. August geboren. Elvis Presley wuchs als geliebtes und behütetes Einzelkind auf.
Eltern und Sohn bildeten einen ungewöhnlich engen Familienverbund, soziale Kontakte spielten sich in erster Linie im Kreis der Familie und der unmittelbaren Nachbarschaft ab.
Hier sang Elvis Presley schon früh im Chor. So wohnte die Familie trotz strenger Rassentrennungsgesetze zeitweise in einem Stadtviertel Tupelos, in dessen unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft viele Afroamerikaner lebten.
Heimliche Ausflüge in die Vergnügungsviertel der schwarzen Bevölkerung Tupelos weckten zudem seine Faszination für den Blues.
Platz belegte. Januar anlässlich des Geburtstages von Presley erzielte ein Original dieser Schallplatte einen Preis von Im Januar machte Presley sich zu seinem zweiten Besuch bei Sun auf.
Auch Phillips war beeindruckt und begann, den jungen Sänger zu fördern. Auch die Charterfolge blieben nicht aus. Auf Presleys dynamisch-erotische Bühnen-Performance, vor allem seine rhythmischen Hüft- und Beinbewegungen, reagierte das Publikum hier erstmals mit für damalige Verhältnisse ungewöhnlich lautstarker Begeisterung bis hin zu tumultartigen Szenen.
Fontana mit Presley durch die Südstaaten. Zunehmend stahl Presley auf diesen Tourneen nicht nur anderen Nachwuchstalenten die Show, sondern auch etablierten Country-Künstlern wie Hank Snow, und schaffte sich eine Fangemeinde, zu der bald auch der junge Roy Orbison gehörte.
Nach Übernahme des Managements von Presley war Parker bis exklusiv für diesen tätig. Zudem arbeitete Presley bei dieser Session erstmals erfolgreich mit Gordon Stoker vom Gesangsquartett The Jordanaires , eine Zusammenarbeit, die in den nächsten 15 Jahren noch viele Hits hervorbringen sollte.
Juni , bei dem er Hound Dog spielte, machte Presley während eines langsameren Blues-Teils vor dem Mikrofon besonders rhythmische Hüft- und Beinbewegungen.
Der Auftritt wurde mehr oder minder deutlich als Striptease auf offener Bühne interpretiert. Elternverbände, religiöse Gruppierungen sowie Lehrerorganisationen liefen Sturm gegen den Musiker aus den Südstaaten.
Sowohl die Musik als auch der Sänger wurden für eine breite Palette von Dingen verantwortlich gemacht, die als gesellschaftliche Missstände empfunden wurden: abweichende Moral- sowie kulturelle Wertvorstellungen, Rassenvermischung, Jugendkriminalität und Gottlosigkeit.
Wallis auf den jungen Mann aus Memphis aufmerksam. Auf der Suche nach einem Nachwuchstalent, das vor allem die jüngere Zielgruppe ins Kino locken sollte, war er von der charismatischen Erscheinung Presleys begeistert.
Probeaufnahmen und Verhandlungen, die im Frühjahr stattfanden, resultierten schnell in einem Vertrag über mehrere Filme. Vor allem Jailhouse Rock wird von Filmhistorikern heute als Klassiker seines Genres bewertet, der in das amerikanische National Film Registry für kulturell, historisch und ästhetisch bedeutende Filme aufgenommen wurde.
Parallel zu Filmaufnahmen, Studio- und Soundtrackalben war Presley in diesen Jahren auch immer wieder auf Tournee, spielte vor ausverkauftem Haus und wurde wegen der heftigen Reaktionen seiner Fans von Polizeieskorten zu seinen Auftritten begleitet.
Es wurde angenommen, dass Presley, wie viele andere Berühmtheiten vor ihm, zumindest den Weg in die Special Services wählen würde, bei dem nicht ein normales Soldatenleben, sondern der komfortablere Sondereinsatz in Sachen Unterhaltung der G.
August starb Presleys Mutter, die schon einige Zeit bei schlechter Gesundheit gewesen war, im Alter von 46 Jahren an Herzversagen.
Presley, der ein sehr enges Verhältnis zu seinen Eltern, besonders aber zu seiner Mutter hatte, war am Boden zerstört. Nach seiner Ankunft in Bremerhaven diente er vom 1.
Oktober bis zum 2. US-Panzerdivision in Friedberg. In privater Hinsicht war seine Zeit in der Armee auf dreifache Weise bedeutsam. Presley entdeckte seine Liebe zum Karatesport , den er sein weiteres Leben hindurch mit viel Engagement betrieb.
Verschiedenen Quellen zufolge kam er bei der Armee auch erstmals in Kontakt mit Amphetaminen , die an Soldaten ausgegeben wurden, um unter anderem auf Manövern länger durchzuhalten.
Als Presley Anfang März nach anderthalb Jahren Wehrdienst in Deutschland erstmals wieder amerikanischen Boden betrat, hatte sich die Musiklandschaft beträchtlich verändert.
Zwischen und Anfang drehte Presley 27 Filme — meistens Musikkomödien — und zu beinahe jedem der Filme erschien ein Soundtrackalbum.
Der Schwerpunkt seiner Arbeit in den sogenannten Hollywoodjahren lag auf Filmproduktionen und Studioarbeit.
Schnell war allen Anwesenden klar, dass er nichts von seinen Fähigkeiten verloren, seine Stimme vielmehr an Reife und Umfang gewonnen hatte. Presleys Schauspielkarriere hingegen entwickelte sich in diesen Jahren anders, als er sich dies nach dem vielversprechenden Start vor seiner Armeezeit erhofft hatte.
Blues und Blue Hawaii. Zwar waren die anspruchsvollen Studioalben, die er zwischen und herausbrachte, gut in den Hitparaden positioniert und auch kommerziell erfolgreich, aber sie waren nicht so erfolgreich wie die Soundtrackalben der Musikfilme.
Mitte der er-Jahre war die Musiklandschaft ein weiteres Mal im Umbruch. Zwar war Presley nach wie vor mit seinen Liedern kontinuierlich in den Hitparaden präsent, vor allem hoch in den Adult Contemporary Charts, die musikalischen Trends setzten jedoch zunehmend andere.
Das einzige gemeinsame Kind Lisa Marie Presley kam am 1. Februar in Memphis zur Welt. Geplant war zunächst ein reines Weihnachts-Special. Im Frühjahr wurden die Planungen konkreter, als zum einen der Nähmaschinenhersteller Singer als Sponsor gewonnen werden konnte und zum anderen NBC ein junges und erfolgreiches Produzententeam für das Special vorschlug: Bones Howe und Steve Binder.
Die enge Zusammenarbeit zwischen dem Produzententeam und Presley resultierte in einer Fernsehshow, die nichts mehr mit einem Weihnachts-Special zu tun hatte.
Die er-Jahre standen ganz im Zeichen von Live-Auftritten. Es war das erste in zahlreichen Ländern der Welt per Satellit live ausgestrahlte Konzert eines Soloentertainers und machte ihn endgültig zum internationalen Superstar.
Im Januar entschloss sich Presley, erstmals seit wieder in seinem Wohnort Memphis aufzunehmen. Dort produzierte der Gitarrist und Songschreiber Moman — er hatte zuvor erfolgreich für das Stax-Label gearbeitet — reihenweise Hits für eine Vielzahl auswärtiger Plattenlabel, unter anderem mit Künstlern wie Dusty Springfield und Neil Diamond.
Das Ergebnis der Sessions im American Studio war eine vielseitige Palette an Presley-Songs, die vom zeitgenössischen Soul bis zu Country-Standards reichte — darunter solche, die Elemente aus Rock, Blues und Country so einsetzten, dass sie keinem speziellen Genre zuzuordnen waren.
Hardin ersetzt wurde. Unterstützt von seinem Musikerfreund Charlie Hodge stellte Presley ein Programm zusammen, das eine Mischung aus alten und neuen Elvis-Hits, aber auch Titel anderer zeitgenössischer Interpreten vorsah.
Gekleidet in ein zweiteiliges schwarzes, an einen Karate-Gi angelehntes Outfit hatte Presley sein Publikum fest im Griff, nicht nur mit seinen Liedern, sondern auch mit seiner energetischen Bühnenshow, deren Karateeinlagen ein fester Bestandteil seiner Auftritte wurden.
Sein letztes Engagement in Las Vegas absolvierte Presley am Dezember , insgesamt gab er zwischen und Konzerte in der Spielerstadt.
Er sollte sich in den folgenden Jahren nicht mehr wesentlich verändern, auch wenn immer wieder Lieder ausgetauscht wurden.
Die Performance bestimmter Songs an bestimmten Stellen des Konzerts nahm zunehmend rituellen Charakter an.
Die Elvis Presley Show beinhaltete keinerlei Tanzeinlagen oder aufwändige Effekte, sondern wurde ganz von Presleys Persönlichkeit und seiner Performance — gestützt durch die Backgroundmusiker — getragen.
Zugaben wurden nicht gewährt, die Vorgruppe stellte meist ein Komiker gefolgt von Interpretationen der Backgroundsänger, häufig der Soulgruppe Sweet Inspirations.
Erst am 4. Weitere Höhepunkte waren das Silvesterkonzert im Silverdome in Pontiac am Dezember vor der Rekordzahl von über Sein letztes Konzert gab Elvis Presley am Juni in der Market Square Arena in Indianapolis.
Am Tag seines Todes, dem August , wollte er sich auf den Weg zu einer weiteren Tournee machen, die in Portland , Maine hätte beginnen sollen.
Anfang hatte sich seine Frau Priscilla von ihm getrennt; der Scheidungstermin stand im Oktober an. Zudem machten sich verstärkt gesundheitliche Probleme bemerkbar.
Wegen dieser Rahmenbedingungen und aus Zeitgründen entschloss man sich im Sommer , wieder in Memphis aufzunehmen, allerdings nicht in Chip Momans American Sound Studio, sondern beim bekannten Stax-Studio.
Dort haperte es an der technischen Ausstattung, so dass Presley die Aufnahmen zunächst nicht zu Ende brachte.
Als Diagnose hatte man zunächst Herzinsuffizienz angenommen. Es stellte sich jedoch heraus, dass sich Presley aufgrund seiner Rückenbeschwerden bei einem kalifornischen Arzt einer mehrwöchigen Behandlung unterzogen hatte, bei der ihm hohe Dosen Cortison und Demerol gespritzt worden waren.
Neben der nötigen Entgiftung wurde er auch wegen eines Megakolons , Hepatitis , eines potenziellen Magengeschwürs und chronischer Schlafstörungen behandelt, unter denen er ebenso litt wie an dem sogenannten Morbus-Reiter-Syndrom.
Die Behandlung durch eine Reihe von Spezialisten führte zu einer recht schnellen, wenn auch nicht vollständigen Genesung und Erholungsphase.
Die Aufnahmesession bei Stax konnte bereits ab dem Dezember unter technisch besseren Voraussetzungen fortgesetzt werden. Seine letzte Aufnahmesession absolvierte Presley zuhause — und zwar im Jungle Room, der seinen Namen aufgrund seiner ungewöhnlichen Einrichtung hat.
