Elvis Presley and his journey with music

Who in this world doesn’t know Elvis and his music? He was a legend and will remain his popularity all decades for sure. He had been popular in criticism as well as in music and movies. Either way, he could gain popularity and fame. However, Presley was really concerned about his negative popularity in public. More or less he was getting for what he was born!
Presley’s life was so filmy and dramatic in all ways. He had been through ups and downs in his private and professional life. He holds the most spectacular personality in the music industry. He was able to rose to unique heights, but in the last years of his life, he found the most broken and irresponsible person because of his erratic behavior. In 1975 he was even left by his backup singer in disgust during Norfolk concert.

There had been so much amazing to know about Presley. If we talk about the Beetles, it is said that once John Lennon, a musical pioneer and peaceful man, who introduced the world to free thoughts and rock & roll and whose bedroom had Presley’s poster, he once said for Elvis Presley, ‘Nothing really affected me until I heard Elvis. If there hadn’t been an Elvis, there wouldn’t have been the Beatles.’ As a big time celebrity, the Beetles got a chance to meet up few famous celebrities. They even got a chance to meet Presley in the year 1965 and that was the time they visited the King of Rock and Roll.

Presley’s life was changing dramatically. As he was overtaking prescribed drugs and as we can understand what was going on in his life so he might be trying to forget everything or just wanted to ignore those incidents for the while. By the year 1976, he became so sick and unwell to go for recording. Once he was sent a mobile studio to get his music record at his home by RCA, but even in that comfortable context, the recording process was struggling for him. RCA, a company which had enjoyed good fortune with Presley and with his hit music for a decade. Although there were no major hits during 1973 and 1975 but a few like ‘Promised Land’ and ‘Moody Blue’. One of his number ‘Hurt’ was appreciated a lot in his last years of survival. As if he felt the same as he sounded in his song. And for this Dave Marsh wrote for his performance in his words ‘the wonder isn’t that he had only a year left to live but that he managed to survive that long.’

The whole world is blessed with Elvis Presley’s songs and music. He was kind of all-rounder; he was a singer, an actor, respected sergeant, all time big celebrity and a family man. His life and work were criticized the most and he had a huge number of fans all over the world. Almost every music album was hit. A number of Elvis Presley’s gospel and rock n roll music.
