Description: Elvis Presley is shown with his Gibson J-200 guitar in a 1957 MGM studio publicity photo. Born in Tupelo, Miss., Elvis was an immediate sensation in the mid-1950s with his blend of blues rock and rockabilly. Because of his stage gyrations, television producers initially refused to show him below the waist on screen. Critics called him "Elvis the Pelvis," but his fans called him the "King of Rock 'n' Roll." The Elvis empire grew with live performances, records, films and a grand estate in Memphis,Tenn., known worldwide as Graceland. Elvis died at Graceland on Aug. 16, 1977. He was 42. (AP Photo)
