It seemed like he had always been with us, creating music, the icon of a generation, but a heart attack ended the life of the ‘King’.

Born on January 8th 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi, Elvis was to span decades of music .

He had it all, the voice, the look and the moves. He also had a sense of humour which isn’t always easy to find in the later films he made.

Everyone has a ‘version ‘ of Elvis linked to a particular era . He remains one of the best selling artists in music history, even to this day
