** Elvis (with a pair of Colorado cops) once flew all the way out to UsefulNotes/{{Denver}} at about midnight to eat a couple of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fool%27s_Gold_Loaf Fool's Gold Loaves]] (a hollowed-out, lightly-toasted Italian loaf) filled with a whole jar of peanut butter, a whole jar of grape jelly, and an [[BaconAddiction entire pound of bacon]]. That's right, we said a couple: He probably ate at least four of the things that night. Since one of the cops was the friend of the guy who owned the restaurant that made the damned things, they got a tray of them wheeled out to the Denver airport, where they and their pilots ate the sandwiches (washed down with Perrier sparkling water and ''Dom Perignon'') and flew back to Memphis. Without even leaving the airport.

** By the start of the 1960's, Creator/RCARecords had pretty much stopped putting the name "Presley" on Elvis' album and singles sleeves.

* FiftiesHair: Elvis doesn't scream '50s without his ducktail pompadour. The long, thick sideburns only came out in TheSeventies.

'''Elvis Aaron Presley''' (8 January 1935 16 August 1977) was one of the most influential singers of the mid-20th century, selling over a billion records worldwide. He began his professional singing career and signed his first contract in 1954 with Music/SamPhillips, the owner of ''Sun Records'', who teamed him with two other musicians, guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black. (They were later joined by drummer DJ Fontana) Elvis himself often played guitar. The legendary sessions can be enjoyed on the compilation album ''Music/TheSunSessions'' from 1976.

He then made a comeback in 1968 with his first live performance in seven years on a massively-watched show called ''Elvis''. On the back of this, he returned to being a rock star, releasing more albums and taking several successful tours in the US. The last great moment of his career was ''Aloha from Hawaii'', the world's first satellite-televised rock concert. Thereafter, his health (and the quality of his concerts) severely declined due to his abuse of prescription drugs. He died in August 1977 in Graceland, his mansion in Memphis.
