Armed with only a snarl, an immaculate quiff, elastic snakehips and an electrifying stage presence, Elvis Presley single-handedly revolutionised rock and roll. Whether he was imploring his dates not to step on his blue suede shoes or posing magnificently through the mean and moody Heartbreak Hotel, Elvis was arguably the most important figure in American 20th century popular music. "Performing is like a surge of electricity going through you," he once said. And once Elvis exploded, the universe would never quite be the same again.

Elvis was born into dirt poverty on 8 January 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi. His father Vernon was often unemployed and worked, variously, as a milkman, carpenter and sharecropper. Elvis grew up as the only kid at his school who would arrive barefoot. The family rented a shack on the edge of Shakerag, a slum area in Tupelo. Elvis grew up loving music. He'd listen to R&B, blues, country, pop and gospel music. His mother Gladys bought him a cheap, acoustic guitar for his 10th birthday and he began performing at weekly local radio spots. In 1948 the Presleys moved to Memphis and Elvis worked as a truck driver after leaving high school.

In 1954 he made the first of several private recordings at Sam Philips' Sun studio. Elvis' first official Sun Single saw him teamed up with guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black for a hypnotic version of Arthur Crudup's bluesy That's All Right Mama. Elvis' vocals were a mesmerising mix of gospel swoops, falsetto shrieks, growls and scowls. The record became an instant local hit and radio listeners, who assumed the singer was black, jammed radio stations requesting the song repeatedly. Local papers were less enthusiastic "Popular music has reached its lowest depths in the grunt and groin antics of Elvis Presley," said the Daily News.
In 1955 Elvis went back to Sun studios to record Good Rockin' Tonight Milkcow Blues and Baby, Let's Play House. By now Presley was becoming well known in the South through his live appearances and a regular spot on the Louisiana Hayride radio show. He released one more Sun single, a pulsating version of Junior Parker's Mystery Train before Sam Philips sold Elvis' contract to major label RCA for the unprecedented sum of $35,000. But for many music critics, Elvis' early recordings on Sun remain his finest. With his explosive, sexual stage presence and his uniquely powerful singing style, Elvis%u2019 1950s recordings established the basic language of rock & roll, unequalled until the emergence of The Beatles.

The move to RCA records led to Hank Snow's former manager, Col. Tom Parker taking control of Elvis' career. Parker has often been criticised for slowly ruining Presley's artistic career from this point on with a choice of overly commercial pop singles and a succession of increasingly cheesy Hollywood musicals but the signing of Presley to a major label was a significant step in the development of rock music. RCA gave Presley national exposure through TV shows, where Elvis' gyrating pelvis was often censored. But a shift in Elvis' musical approach was evident with his first No.1, Heartbreak Hotel - a passionate paean to teen angst which lacked the primal edge of his earlier records. Between 1956-1958 most of Presley's hits came from professional songwriters, ranging from the doo-wop of Don't Be Cruel to the raucous R&B of Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock and King Creole. During this time Elvis would notch up 10 US No.1 singles and star in his first feature film, Love Me Tender. But the chart run would be ended by Elvis' controversial call-up to the US army in 1958. During his two-year national service, Elvis suffered the death of his mother, an event that would affect him deeply. During this period several Elvis reissues appeared on he market. Elvis celebrated his release in March 1960 with another US No.1, Stuck On You. Elvis soon returned to the studio and began working on a new balladesque singing style that was only vaguely reminiscent of his electric beginnings. 1960 hit It's Now Or Never, a melodic nod to the Italian standard O Sole Mio, with its tinkling mandolins was indicative of Elvis' new commercial style.

However despite cries of sell out from rock critics Elvis still had his moments - Devil In Disguise, Viva Las Vegas, Are You Lonesome Tonight and, his only million seller between 1962-1969, Return To Sender. During this time music took second place to Elvis' film career. Urged on by his manager Col Parker and the vast sums of money the films generated, Elvis was contracted to make three movies a year to a punishing schedule. The films had an average of seven songs and usually portrayed a clean cut Elvis beating up some punks and getting his girl. Whether they had exotic locations (1961's Blue Hawaii) or beach party themes (1962's Girls, Girls, Girls) the films were usually lightweight, throwaway musicals, interspersed with a vague attempt at drama (1969's Charro).
Elvis married his long time girlfriend Priscilla Beaulieu in 1967 and a year later the couple had a daughter, Lisa Marie. Wedded bliss enlivened Elvis' personal life but professionally he was drowning in a sea of mediocre musical output and had been overtaken in popularity by The Beatles. And he was binge eating between movies and then fasting and taking speed pills just before shooting began to reach his goal weight. But in 1968 Elvis managed to brilliantly reinvent himself with the Elvis Comeback TV special. Dressed head to toe in leather, a once again mean 'n' moody Elvis took to a bare stage to recreate an 'impromptu' jam session with his former Sun colleagues guitarist Scotty Moore and drummer DJ Fontana. Elvis covered his early rock and roll hits before moving through gospel and blues. It was a truly electrifying and magnetic performance. Soon afterwards Elvis returned to Memphis for a massive recording session that would produce three, million-selling singles, In The Ghetto, Suspcious Minds and Don't Cry Daddy.

With the advent of the '70s Elvis turned to Las Vegas for a series of money spinning cabaret shows. There was an overwhelming whiff of camembert in these performances as he struggled to cram his expanding paunch into his glitzy, white, diamond- studded jumpsuit. His pre-gig four foot hero sandwich of peanut butter, bacon and jelly often taking precedence over the performance. Elvis was a shadow of his former rock and roll self. A combination of crash diets, prescribed drugs and junk food binges was killing him. And eventually the lethal combination proved too much for his ailing heart and on 16th August 1977 he was found dead in his Graceland home by girlfriend Ginger Alden.

His funeral was attended by over 75,000 fans and mourners flocking to the gates of his Graceland home. Following his death, a cottage industry sprang up around alleged Elvis 'sightings', whether it was Elvis popping in to McDonalds with his other deceased iconic mates Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix or rummaging through the bargains at a local car boot sale. It was a mark of his iconic status that Elvis remained as popular after his death. Underneath the burger guzzling, pill-popping figure was a 20th century musical legend.
