Reinforcing Presley's image as a sex symbol were the reports of his dalliances with various Hollywood stars and starlets, from Natalie Wood in the s to Connie Stevens and Ann-Margret in the s to Candice Bergen and Cybill Shepherd in the s.
June Juanico of Memphis, one of Presley's early girlfriends, later blamed Parker for encouraging him to choose his dating partners with publicity in mind.
Elvis kept several horses at Graceland , and horses remain important to the Graceland estate. A local former teacher, Alene Alexander, has taken care of the horses at Graceland for 38 years.
She and Priscilla Presley have a love for horses and have formed a special friendship. It was because of Priscilla that Elvis brought horses to Graceland.
Alexander now serves as Graceland's Ambassador. She is one of three of the original staff members still working at the estate.
The horse named Palomino Rising Sun was Elvis' favorite horse and there are many photographs of him riding him. Once he became Presley's manager, Colonel Tom Parker insisted on exceptionally tight control over his client's career.
Early on, he and his Hill and Range allies, the brothers Jean and Julian Aberbach , perceived the close relationship that developed between Presley and songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller as a serious threat to that control.
Leiber thought there was a mistake—the sheet of paper was blank except for Parker's signature and a line on which to enter his.
By , Parker's contracts gave him 50 percent of most of Presley's earnings from recordings, films, and merchandise. He would sign a contract without even reading it.
He was only interested in 'now money'—get the buck and get gone. Lacker was instrumental in convincing Presley to record with Memphis producer Chips Moman and his handpicked musicians at American Sound Studio in early The American Sound sessions represented a significant departure from the control customarily exerted by Hill and Range.
Moman still had to deal with the publisher's staff on-site, whose song suggestions he regarded as unacceptable. He was on the verge of quitting until Presley ordered the Hill and Range personnel out of the studio.
Throughout his entire career, Presley performed in only three venues outside the United States—all of them in Canada, during brief tours there in I'll probably start out here in this country and after that, play some concerts abroad, probably starting in Europe.
I want to see some places I've never seen before. Parker was uncharacteristically reluctant, prompting those close to Presley to speculate about the manager's past and the reasons for his evident unwillingness to apply for a passport.
Parker arguably exercised tightest control over Presley's film career. Hal Wallis said, "I'd rather try and close a deal with the devil" than with Parker.
Fellow film producer Sam Katzman described him as "the biggest con artist in the world". In Lacker's description, "The only thing that kept Elvis going after the early years was a new challenge.
But Parker kept running everything into the ground. In Leiber's telling, Jean Aberbach warned them to never again "try to interfere with the business or artistic workings of the process known as Elvis Presley".
In the early s, the circle of friends with whom Presley constantly surrounded himself until his death came to be known as the "Memphis Mafia".
If we hadn't been around, he would have been dead a lot earlier. Larry Geller became Presley's hairdresser in Unlike others in the Memphis Mafia, he was interested in spiritual questions and recalls how, from their first conversation, Presley revealed his secret thoughts and anxieties: "I mean there has to be a purpose I swear to God, no one knows how lonely I get.
And how empty I really feel. Presley's rise to national attention in transformed the field of popular music and had a huge effect on the broader scope of popular culture.
Elvis was a blessing. They wouldn't let black music through. He opened the door for black music. His following was immense, and he was a symbol to people the world over of the vitality, rebelliousness, and good humor of his country.
Presley's name, image, and voice are recognized around the globe. He introduced the beat to everything and he changed everything—music, language, clothes.
It's a whole new social revolution—the sixties came from it. On the 25th anniversary of Presley's death, The New York Times asserted, "All the talentless impersonators and appalling black velvet paintings on display can make him seem little more than a perverse and distant memory.
But before Elvis was camp, he was its opposite: a genuine cultural force. Elvis' breakthroughs are underappreciated because in this rock-and-roll age, his hard-rocking music and sultry style have triumphed so completely.
Elvis Presley is a supreme figure in American life, one whose presence, no matter how banal or predictable, brooks no real comparisons.
The cultural range of his music has expanded to the point where it includes not only the hits of the day, but also patriotic recitals, pure country gospel, and really dirty blues.
Elvis has emerged as a great artist , a great rocker , a great purveyor of schlock , a great heart throb , a great bore , a great symbol of potency , a great ham , a great nice person , and, yes, a great American.
Presley holds the records for most songs charting in Billboard ' s top 40—    —and top , according to chart statistician Joel Whitburn ,   according to Presley historian Adam Victor.
Whitburn has Presley also with 18, and thus tied for second;  Billboard has him third with As an album artist, Presley is credited by Billboard with the record for the most albums charting in the Billboard : , far ahead of second-place Frank Sinatra's He also holds the record for most time spent at number one on the Billboard 67 weeks.
This gave him a new record for number-one UK albums by a solo artist with 13, and extended his record for longest span between number-one albums by anybody—Presley had first topped the British chart in with his self-titled debut.
In the spider Paradonea presleyi was named in his honor. A vast number of recordings have been issued under Presley's name. The total number of his original master recordings has been variously calculated as  and In the case of his albums, the distinction between "official" studio records and other forms is often blurred.
For most of the s, his recording career focused on soundtrack albums. In the s, his most heavily promoted and best-selling LP releases tended to be concert albums.

Presley transformed not only the sound but the emotion of the song, turning what had been written as a "lament for a lost love into a satisfied declaration of independence.

I know he invented rock and roll, in a manner of speaking, but He's worshiped as a god today because in addition to inventing rock and roll he was the greatest ballad singer this side of Frank Sinatra —because the spiritual translucence and reined-in gut sexuality of his slow weeper and torchy pop blues still activate the hormones and slavish devotion of millions of female human beings worldwide.

The name was chosen after the Presleys' friend and fellow congregation member Aaron Kennedy, though a single-A spelling was probably intended by Presley's parents to parallel the middle name of Presley's stillborn brother, Jesse Garon.
Late in his life, he sought to officially change the spelling to Aaron and discovered that state records already listed it that way. Knowing his wishes for his middle name, Aaron is the spelling his father chose for Presley's tombstone, and it is the spelling his estate has designated as official.
He received credit on two other songs to which he did contribute: he provided the title for " That's Someone You Never Forget " , written by his friend and former Humes schoolmate Red West ; Presley and West collaborated with another friend, guitarist Charlie Hodge, on " You'll Be Gone " He tallies each side of the former single as a number-one Billboard ' s sales chart had "Don't Be Cruel" at number one for five weeks, then "Hound Dog" for six and reckons "I Beg of You" as a top ten, as it reached number eight on the old Top chart.
Billboard now considers both singles as unified items, ignoring the historical sales split of the former and its old Top chart entirely.
Whitburn thus analyzes the four songs as yielding three number ones and a total of four top tens. Billboard now states that they yielded just two number ones and a total of two top tens, voiding the separate chart appearances of "Hound Dog" and "I Beg of You".

Each August crowds flock to Graceland to honour him on the anniversary not of his birth but of his death. From time to time rumours cropped up that he did not really die, that his death was a fake designed to free him from fame.
