Singer, actor. Born Elvis Aron Presley, on January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi. An only child (a twin brother, Jesse Garon, was stillborn), Presley was raised by his parents, Gladys and Vernon, in a poor and extremely religious home. In 1973, following his divorce from his wife Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, he became increasingly drug-dependent and overweight, and he spent his last years living reclusively at his Memphis home, known as Graceland. Presley’s death in 1977, at age 42, shocked his many admirers, who have never given up on the music, mementos, and memory of the man they regard as “The King of Rock & Roll.”
Elvis and Paul did meet, when Paul was a Beatle in the 60's. Paul also covers some Elvis songs on Run Devil Run. It would be interesting to have them meet back up again and do a song.
