Elvis Presley's Biography

Leads Press published the 41-page book 'Elvis Presley's Biography'. An Account of the sad life and tragic death of the 20th Century King of Rock and Roll and American actor.

One of the most popular singers in the United States was Elvis Aaron Presley. A native of Tupelo, Mississippi, he passed away on August 16, 1977 in Memphis, Tennessee. From the mid-1950s until his untimely death in 1977, Elvis Presley was widely regarded as the "King of Rock and Roll".

Elvis was a man-child who was blessed with incredible talent but allowed himself to be badly handled, and his downfall was finally brought on by substance misuse. Despite all of the admiration, the wealth, and the multitudes of people who continually surrounded him, Elvis Presley, the youngster from Tupelo, Mississippi, was still completely isolated. His family and friends, who were in a position to assist him, enabled the huge amount of self-indulgence that ultimately led to the tragic end of his life. Consequently, every time you listen to Elvis, you have the option of tuning into either side of his performance.

The Elvis Information Network noted: Leads Press is an author "self-publishing" group. And this appears to be a truly parasitic attempt to grab onto the coat-tails of the success of the new 'ELVIS' Biopic

The "sad life and tragic death of an American icon" is described in just 41 pages - someone should tell Baz Luhrmann :-) - and unlike the new biopic, the anme "PRESLEY" is spelt wrong on the book's cover! Avoid at all cost, or better still enjoy the joke!
