“The King” left the building (so to speak) many moons ago, but we’re getting an opportunity to really see him in a brand new revealing light.
Elvis Presley had (has) a fan-culture akin to the Beatles in many respects. He was an ordinary boy who became a man that could sing, who then not-so-quietly evolved into a musical and performing icon unlike most anybody in recent memory. The latter is not necessarily concerning the pure talent-side of things, as there have been (and there currently are) several living legends across music’s diverse spectrum. However, there is a relentlessly magnetic fandom that, from the outside, appears equally dedicated and passionate about Mr. Presley’s many offerings more than 40 years after his death.
He was (is) a rare force.
This rock n’ roll star delivered a crowd-pleasing electricity every time he hit any kind of stage (music, TV, and movie). The hope is the forthcoming two-part HBO documentary Elvis Presley: The Searcher will shine a spotlight on “the King” that might give us hints as to his illustrious, undying legacy.
And why his moves still move people to this day.
P.S. At least we know who taught him those signature dance moves…
