Elvis Presley Quotes To Remind You Of The King Of Rock And Roll


What would the world be without Elvis Presley? The King of Rock and Roll may sadly not be with us anymore. Yet, Elvis’ spirit lives on, not only through his music but through Elvis quotes too!

Elvis Presley was a self-made man. He may not have come from much, but he was rich in his love for religion and music. Elvis adored gospel music, which heavily influenced his music career. When he received his first guitar at 11, the King of Rock and Roll was born.

After high school, Elvis worked tirelessly to make his music dreams come true. And, he sure did. In just 2 years, Elvis signed a record deal and skyrocketed to international fame. It all started with two hit songs, “That’s Alright” and “Heartbreak Hotel” (not to mention his incredibly good looks…)

Elvis’ career did face a small pause when he was drafted in 1957. That didn’t stop this superstar. His career was waiting for him when he got back, with multiple movie deals and number one hits to record.

The speed and intensity of his career weren’t always glitz and glamour. Elvis faced his own demons, demons that eventually led to his premature death at just 42 years old.

The world was and still feels devastated over such a loss. Elvis will always remain a true legend, who will live on forever through his amazing music, stage performances, and, of course, quotes!
