Walk A Lonely Street - Elvis Presley, Country Music & The True Story Of Heartbreak Hotel


Für das Jahr 2016 ist die Veröffentlichung des Buches "Walk A Lonely Street - Elvis Presley, Country Music & The True Story Of Heartbreak Hotel" von Tony Plews geplant und wird mit folgenden Worten beworben:

"Heartbreak Hotel was the electrifying record that launched the career of the world’s most popular entertainer, Elvis Presley, and helped establish rock ‘n’ roll as a genuine musical force. Recorded and released in January 1956 as the singer turned 21 and was breaking out of the claustrophobic Country music scene, the song quickly became a worldwide hit and awakened an entire generation, kick-starting the cultural revolution of the 1960s.

For sixty years a legend flourished around Presley’s hit record: the saga of how and why it was written became the most famous story-behind-the-song in music history. But the fabled scenario of an anonymous suicide victim and his enigmatic note  –  “I walk a lonely street”  –  posed more questions than it answered.

This is the book that solves the last great mystery of rock 'n' roll: who was the anonymous man whose death inspired Elvis Presley's first hit record?

It is a story that spans over one hundred years and involves scores of singers and their songs, uncovering the truth, placing events in context and revealing the astonishing depth of Presley’s artistic vision and achievements.

There is a tale to tell …"

Falls das Lieblingslied eine reale Geschichte hat, die des Liedes zugrunde gelegen ist, das schenkt neue Emotionen und Erlebnisse.
