The rock-n-roll star was the idol of the generation of the style of the 60s and 70s. The last century, an outstanding and most mysterious person, a talented actor and performer. It is all about Elvis Presley. The Presley family was religious. Already in his childhood, Elvis sang spiritual hymns. By nature, the singer was a soft, weak-willed person, easily succumbing to all sorts of adventures.
The first guitar Elvis received at the age of 9, but this kid was not pleased with this gift. Like all boys, the boy dreamed of a bicycle – there was not enough money for such an expensive gift. Despite this, music in the boy’s life begins to occupy almost the main place. In ten years for the performance of ‘Old Shep’, he became the winner of the children’s singer competition.
Elvis became interested in modern music, he was attracted to both country, and traditional variety, and black music (blues, boogie-woogie, rhythm, and blues), and he tried to strum something like that. ‘I took the guitar and watched people play it, and I learned to play a little. But I was shy and did not want to sing in public’.
And when in the 8th grade the teacher rolled him a deuce in music, calling him a jerk, Elvis brought his guitar the next day and sang the hit ‘Keep Them Cold Icy Fingers Off Me’ in an attempt to prove the opposite. In 1953, Elvis took part in the annual festival ‘Humes’s Annual’ Minstrel ‘’, and in July a fateful meeting took place that turned his whole life.
