The biographical events, public and private, of the king of rock'n'roll Elvis Presley (1935-1977), narrated on the basis of the research, analyzes and reconstructions of his most authoritative biographers: Jerry Hopkins, Albert Goldman and Peter Guralnick. The humble family origins of Elvis, and the explosion of his scandalous rock'n'roll that scared right-thinking America. The extraordinary record success, transgressive stardom and military service in Germany. The dozens of musical films (Elvis movies), and the sudden change from sex symbol to sentimental singer. Private life tormented by oedipal sexuality and drug addiction. The dramatic personal and artistic decline, physical and psychological, and the death of him at the age of 42. All the roughest pages of the biography of the legendary “Elvis the Pelvis”. With some documents from the archives of the FBI-Federal Bureau of Investigation, with various interviews and testimonies, and with the memoirs of the ex-wife of the king of rock'n'roll Priscilla Beaulieu. |
