Everyone has heard of Elvis – it’s hard not to have done he was insanely famous, but not everyone knows just how widespread his popularity and influence was. He was the first to make ‘rockabilly’ popular with all ages, which are essentially the founding notes of rock and roll.
He pulled together many different music styles popular at the time, including country and western, rhythm and blues and pop, which allowed him to appeal to every music fan and really influence the younger generation of the time.
Many people mistakenly accredit him with the ‘birth or rock and roll’ however he wasn’t the first to sing in this style and can’t really be credited with that fact. However his popularity influenced more than just music taste and was the start of younger generations seeing themselves as ‘different’ to their elders.
His career went through a myriad of changes as he adapted to stay current and popular including a brief stint as an actor. His popularity spans all age groups and he still has a huge fan group years after his death.
