When you say the name Elvis Presley, there will not be a person alive saying: ‘Who is that?’
Elvis was, and still is, an icon in the music industry.
Today it is 43 years ago that the king of rock and roll passed away due to illness. His death however still keeps bringing up questions today. The official cause of death is stated to be a heart attack, but many people keep thinking that there could have been other causes to his death.
Elvis Presley passed away in Memphis Tennessee, at the still young age of only 42 years old. His funeral took place two days later, on August 18, 1977.
His funeral was a modest affair, though there were a few number of stars present in Graceland’s living room as also at the ceremony, which was led by Wooddale Church of Christ pastor: C.W. Bradley and followed by a testimonial from comedian: Jackie Kahane, who opened many of >Elvis’s shows.
Though, the king of Rock and Roll has left the world, his family, friends and fans still carry his legacy with them. He still made songs, embodied through many artists that got inspired by Elvis. He also gained postume awards.
In his absence, Elvis Presley is an icon that will never really leave the world due to the heritage that he has given us as a reminder to never forget the king of rock and roll.
