Elvis was a trendsetter, a cultural icon & was the leading figure of the newly born sound of Rock & Roll & who’s classic hits paved the way for the cultural collision of the fifties.
Popular culture owes a huge debt to the King…
(A young Elvis sining Stuck On You stunning 1960 with his gyrating hips)
(Jailhouse Rock an eternal classic)
(Can’t Help Falling In Love With You)
The Clash used Elvis’ iconic 1956 LP album art as inspiration for London Calling.
He injected rhythm & blues into the mainstream & was the Rock & Roll Eminem of the 50s. It is no coincidence that Eminem references him in in the song and video “Without Me”.
