Designing for the King - Elvis Presley's Style

Elvis Presley was totally unique. No one sounded like him. No one dressed like him. If you've been to Graceland, you know its design is totally one-of-a-kind. Elvis didn't follow trends; he was a trendsetter. People watched him slick back his black hair into the perfect pompadour, were dazzled by his eye-catching stage wear and took notice of his custom Pink Cadillac - and then tried their best to mimic his style. He turned a Southern Colonial mansion into a... Read More

Rock 'n' Roll Rebel: Elvis Presley on the Milton Berle Show

"Beware of Elvis Presley" Can you imagine such a headline? For a while in 1956, those sorts of headlines dominated the media, following Elvis Presley's June 5, 1956 performance on the "Milton Berle Show." Looking at his performance today, it's downright tame, but in 1956, it was downright scandalous. They say there's no such thing as bad publicity, and this performance proved that to be true. No matter what anyone thought about Elvis' performance,... Read More
