Description: From the back cover: Summer 2014 marks the 60th anniversary of the release of the very first Elvis Presley record. Not all 'scholars' agree that 'That's All Right' invented rock 'n' roll. But Elvis was the first to become an idol thanks to this new music - blues, country and gospel together in the blender. Bill Haley was your math teacher, Elvis the beautiful young god. More than 35 years after his death, Elvis still deserves an honorable mention in The Hall of Fame of rock music. But how can we describe The King's legacy? Is he still alive? And how did he influence the Dutch rock music world, then and now? Leo Blokhuis, Frédérique Spigt, Cesar Zuiderwijk, Tim Akkerman, Bennie Jolink, Douwe Bob, Gerard Ekdom and others come to surprising insights together with the author. In Elvis Presley, Legacy of a Phenomenon, important episodes in Elvis's life are thematically highlighted.
