Description: 'One sultry summer day not many years ago I was in Memphis with the desire to breathe the air that had oxygenated the birth of rock'n'roll. That same air that had fueled the desires and dreams of a young and unknown Presley before he became just Elvis for everyone. That same air that he never abandoned, out of a mixture of insecurity and gratitude'. Thus begins this book in which the author reconstructs through the life, the artistic career, the tragic end, of the first great rock star struggling with the side effects of celebrity. The journey through the life of an artist who symbolized the redemption of a very poor Southern family in an America where if you were talented you could do it.
