That voice, those eyes, that hair, the cars, the girls. Elvis Presley revolutionized American pop culture when, at twenty-one, he became a modern superstar. He had a personal style that, like his music, had an immediate impact on his audience that continues to influence us today. "Elvis Presley is the greatest cultural force in the twentieth century, " proclaimed Leonard Bernstein. His appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show "ripped the 1950s in half, " writes the author. By any measure, Presley's life was remarkable. From his modest beginnings to his meteoric rise to fame, everything about his life clamored for attention-and he got it. Keogh examines Elvis's life and style to reveal the generous, complex, spiritual man behind the sunglasses and answers the question, "Why does Elvis matter?"
