All Shook up
The Life and Death of Elvis PresleyBook - 2001
Elvis Presley, all quivering hips and pouty lips, hit the scene singing songs that kids couldn't resist. This wasn't their parents' music. This was Elvis, whose music, rooted in rockabilly, blues, country, and gospel, crossed boundaries, joined cultures, and brought him incredible success. Suddenly, he had everything. Women. Cars. Houses. Even his own movies. For someone so young, it was overwhelming. Very quickly, Elvis lost sight of himself. Forever.Today, Elvis's image and music are more a part of American popular culture than ever. Barry Denenberg's piercing insight and personal viewpoint make All Shook Up a must-read for Elvis fans young and old alike.
