Elvis Presley Remembered

On the 40th anniversary of his death, the King still rocks

En español |  Forty years ago, on Aug. 16, 1977, Elvis Presley, age 42, died at Graceland, his beloved home in Memphis, Tenn. In life, he was the most visible and influential figure in rock 'n' roll. In death, he still holds enormous sway. His signature sound can be heard in any number of contemporary artists, he routinely makes the Forbes list of top-earning dead celebrities ($27 million in 2016), and Graceland is the second-most-visited private residence in the country, after the White House. Here’s a look at the highlights of his professional and personal life.
