Publisher Comments:

Put on your blue suede shoes and get ready for another addition to the Who Was…? series! The King could not have come from humbler origins: Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, during the Depression, he grew up with the blues music of the rural South, the gospel music of local churches, and the country-western classics. But he forged a sound all his own—and a look that was all his own, too. With curled lip, swiveling hips, and greased pompadour, Elvis changed popular music forever, ushering in the age of rock and roll. Geoff Edgers’s fascinating biography of this icon of American pop culture includes black and- white illustrations on nearly every spread.

About the Author

Geoff Edgers, a reporter at The Boston Globe and author of Who Were The Beatles?, lives in Arlington, Massachusetts. John OBrien lives in Delaran, New Jersey. Nancy Harrison lives in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Groovy, June 3, 2009 (view all comments by Groovy)
This is a very Groovy book! It has info on "The King" that even I, an Elvis know-it-all, didn't know! It also has cool animated graphics of Elvis. I encourage all Elvis fans to read this thoroghly descriptive book on Elvis Presley, "The King of Rock and Roll"! Thank-you, Thank-you very much! You're beautiful!
