Icons Of Time

March 20, 2009 | Book

Fall River Press will release a new book Elvis Presley: Icons of Time by Alison Guantlett in March.

"When Elvis Aaron Presley was born in a two-roomed house in the small town of Tupelo, Mississippi, in 1935, no one would have predicted that he would become one of the greatest icons of the twentieth century.

His unique new sound and a performing style that drove women wild made him popular across the South and in 1956, with the help of Colonel Tom Parker and a recording contract with RCA, Elvis’s fame spread. Soon he was one of the most popular singers in the world, with a string of hit singles and albums as well as a series of successful Hollywood movies.

Millions of fans across the globe mourned his tragically early death in 1977. But his amazing musical legacy continues to appeal to fans of all ages, and his popularity is undiminished."
