Elvis Ignited - The Rise Of An Icon In Florida


ISBN: 0813062306ISBN: 0813062306Am 14.03.2017 erscheint das 224 Seite starke und von Bob Kealing geschriebene Buch "Elvis Ignited: The Rise Of An Icon In Florida" bei der "University Press Of Florida".

Ankündigung des Verlages:
"I don t think there was a better time and place to be a teenager than in Florida in the 1950s. It was such a magical place. Elvis is part of what contributed to that excitement. Bob Graham, former Florida governor and United States senator Kealing tells us the story of what happened when Elvis arrived in Florida and what role the Sunshine State played in his life and musical career.

This is a critical era in the Elvis Saga. William McKeen, editor of Rock and Roll Is Here to Stay: An Anthology Presents a great picture of what it was like to be a touring musician in the 1950s and also of Florida at the time and how the culture was changed by the shock of Elvis. Joy Wallace Dickinson, author of Remembering Orlando: Tales from Elvis to Disney It was his most electric and influential time as a live performer. The young and hungry Elvis, the rising star, burst onto stages large and small sexy, controversial, brimming with talent and ambition. One lightning-hot year in Florida fueled his rise from novelty act to headlining megastar.

Elvis Ignited follows the immensely talented musician through his tour of Florida in 1955 1956, where he played more concerts than in any other state in the country and where he first became the object of worship, scorn, and controversy. Bob Kealing interviews people who saw the King up close in high school gymnasiums, nightclubs, radio stations, and shopping centers, recalling the time-stands-still memories of hearing his hit songs for the first time and the shrieks of young fans at the sight of the young rockabilly god.

Struck by a new kind of music and performances so different from anything they had known before, Floridians saw how special Elvis was before the rest of the world caught on. Kealing continues the story through Elvis s years in the army and the filming of Follow that Dream in Florida in 1961. Elvis s rise to fame in the Sunshine State was a turning point in American music history. It was the arrival of rock and roll."
