Early Life and Education
Elvis Presley grew up in East Tupelo, Mississippi in an economically depressed environment where Vernon and Gladys Presley struggled to raise him and stillborn twin brother Jesse Garon while keeping their home above poverty level.
Elvis had an interest in music, particularly country-western and rhythm and blues styles. His mother purchased him a guitar at a hardware store and taught him how to play. Later he performed on WELO Saturday Jamboree talent show held from the courthouse.
Although he was an accomplished musician, his love of music began interfering with his academic studies and resulted in falling grades and trouble-making at school. Due to this issue, he was sent abroad for 18 months while still remaining involved with musical endeavors while there.
Elvis began to lose interest in his work during the 60s. He told Priscilla he did not wish to become “a forty-year-old man still shaking his groove thing.”
Presley was represented by Colonel Tom Parker, who exercised tight control of his career. If other musicians or Hollywood film producers approached Elvis with new projects, he must go through Parker first before proceeding with any decisions or taking part.
Parker attempted to prevent the release of “Suspicious Minds” in 1969 due to its apparent deviations from Bill Monroe’s original version of a popular country tune, only for it become an enormous success and go on to sell millions.

Elvis Presley was one of the most iconic American musicians ever and an icon for youth culture in general. As an engaging performer with an eye-catching sexuality that appealed to rebellious teenagers, he quickly rose to iconic status among young fans.
He grew up with a close-knit family, yet his life was marked by chaos and drama. He suffered repeated sexual assaults as well as developing an addiction to cocaine that threatened his career prospects. Additionally, Priscilla became his companion.
Elvis made an effort to give back to his community despite his personal hardships, from giving toys to Marine Drive for Children in Tupelo to performing concerts to raise funds for local community centers in Tupelo and Friedberg Germany, all the way through to giving blood donations at Wartturm Barracks in Friedberg Germany.
Elvis Presley managed to amass an enormous fortune despite enduring a turbulent personal life and turbulent career, becoming a top draw for RCA records and making millions from touring.
Unfortunately, he was an irresponsible spender as well. Aside from living an extravagant lifestyle, he spent hundreds of thousands of dollars illegal substances and gambling activities.
After Elvis died in 1977, his estate continued to generate millions of dollars through merchandise sales and tours of Graceland mansion. By 2020, he was one of the five highest-earning dead celebrities.
