Elvis Presley


American singer and actor, regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century. He is often referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or simply "the King". One of the most famous entertainers in history, his notoriety became worldwide. With a carnal sneer and a Memphis bop-suit, he swiveled across the stage on hot-wired legs. He had 107 top-40 hits (more than twice the total of the Beatles) and 41 gold LPs, the most successful recording artist ever. Presley's persona touched millions of fans, and decades after his death, he is still an icon with a huge following. His records continue to sell as popular CDs, his 33 films still spin off the racks of video stores, and some 15,000 licensed retail products bear his name or image. His Memphis home, Graceland, was opened to the public in 1982. Attracting over half a million visitors annually, it became the second most-visited home in the United States, after the White House.

He was born to Vernon Elvis (10 April 1916 – 26 June 1979) and Gladys Love (née Smith; 25 April 1912 – 14 August 1958) Presley in a two-room shotgun house that his father built for the occasion. His identical twin brother, Jesse Garon Presley, was delivered 35 minutes before him, stillborn. Presley became close to both parents and formed an especially close bond with his mother. She suffered from depression and took medications for this and for her weight problem.

As a young man he started to take his mother's diet pills and antidepressants. Later in his life he always carried a kit of medications that included Dexedrine, Percodan, Seconal, Nembutal, $10,000 in cash, his drivers license, makeup, jewelry, police badges and some pictures. His generosity to strangers is well documented. Always smiling and gracious, he found it difficult to be alone, especially in bed. His habit was to sleep all day with the windows taped so the sun wouldn't get in. He lived and traveled like a potentate with bodyguards that carried large guns.

While in the military stationed in Germany he met his future wife, teenager Priscilla Beaulieu in 1959. Following an eight-year courtship, during which Presley moved her to Nashville, Tennessee, they married on 1 May 1967 at 9:41 AM in Las Vegas, Nevada. Their daughter Lisa Marie was born nine months later to the day, on 1 February 1968, but the marriage became increasingly tumultuous.

During their marriage while on tour, if Priscilla wasn't with him, Presley would ask aides to troll for girls he could spend the night with. He kept books on astrology and numerology so he would have topics of conversation. Later in life due to poor eating habits his weight soared to 250 lbs (113 kg). He wrapped himself in Saran Wrap before dressing to look slimmer, but this just made it more difficult to breathe.

A sensitive person, he was hurt by many people. When his bodyguards wrote an expose of his life, his first comment was "What's Lisa Marie going to think about this?" His second comment was "What're the fans going to think about this?"

Presley died of heart failure on 16 August 1977 at 2:50 PM CDT in Memphis, Tennessee. There were many prescription drugs found on the premises and in his system. The following autopsy found Presley's liver bloated and his colon to be stretched to twice its normal size, due to a buildup up of chalky white fecal matter, both signs of severe drug abuse. The toxicology report found toxic levels of codeine, Quaaludes and six other drugs in his system.

Presley is the best-selling solo music artist of all time. He was commercially successful in many genres, including pop, country, blues, and gospel. He won three Grammys, received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at age 36, and has been inducted into multiple music halls of fame. He holds the records for the most RIAA certified Gold and Platinum albums. In 2018, President Donald Trump awarded Presley the Presidential Medal of Freedom posthumously.

Source Notes


B.C. in hand from Eugene Moore. Same in Contemporary Sidereal Horoscopes. In 1972, Lynn Rodden was his guest at a Las Vegas show. She asked his birth time and he said 3:30 AM, to which his dad added, "That's right, son." He then quoted Bible scripture as to the evils of astrology.

The Mississippi State birth certificate lists his middle name as "Aaron".

Sy Scholfield submitted the doctor's record of Presley's birth [1]. The record was auctioned online on 13 August 2016 [2] with the following comment: "January 8, 1935. Elvis Presley is born in Tupelo, Mississippi. It’s a birthday still widely celebrated by fans across the globe, but the first formal recognition of it, the first written notice anywhere ever, was penned on a page of the offered historical document. This is the formal birth record of Elvis Aaron Presley, recorded just minutes after his birth by Dr. Robert Hunt at 4:35 a.m. on the day he delivered Elvis, and his stillborn twin Jesse 35 minutes earlier, to Gladys and Vernon Presley. The book’s significance as an artifact of the life of Elvis Presley cannot be overstated—if the Presley family had an original birth certificate, it’s been lost to time, leaving this humble medical practitioner’s log as the single remaining original record of Elvis Presley coming into this world."

Craft quotes "Elvis and Gladys" by Elaine Dundy, pg. 7, for "4:30 in the morning".
