Elvis: The King Of Rock And Roll (Book 1: The Crowing Of A King)


Frank R. D'Onofrio ("Elvis Presley: The King Of Rock And Roll") veröffentlicht das 331 Seiten starke Buch "Elvis: The King Of Rock And Roll (Book 1:  The Crowing Of A King)" und dieses wird mit folgenden Worten angekündigt:

"Did you see the Laz Buhrmann movie "Elvis"? This Book focuses on things the film should have addressed. It answers the question, Is Elvis, The King of Rock & Roll? Yes, he is! 

There is no reason for debate, it is a fact, without Elvis, there could be no Rock and Roll music as we know it. Elvis' impact on culture, music and the societal implications point to something no one has ever considered. Who else could have done it?

Why is Elvis: The King of Rock & Roll? The distinction becomes more blurred by only looking at the definition from today's perspective. History was never meant to be told from today's perspective. It must be experienced in the context of the time it happened. You cannot decide based on "Elvis the end result."

Talking about this 60 years later illustrates a culture seeking to rewrite the history of what happened. Believing people at the time should have today's perspective and could do it better. Why Elvis was given, the title harbors fierce debate, and racial tensons. Some take it personally, believing he should not have it and never earned it. This book seeks to end the debate once and for all. Starting with the premise: Music /artists of the time bear little resemblance to the music/artists playing today. After Elvis stepped into the future on July 5th, 1954, accidentally singing "That's Allright Mama." everything changed.

Elvis "The End Result" happened after his coronation on September 9th, 1956. Prior to that, Rock and Roll did not exist. Elvis sold America Rock and Roll Music. He started in 1954. The answer is in the facts of what happened between 1954 - 1956.

It is why John Lennon said, "Before Elvis, there was nothing."; Leonard Bernstein said: "Elvis is the greatest cultural force in the twentieth century. He introduced the beat to everything, music, language, clothes; it's a whole new social revolution – the '60s comes from it."

Elvis Presley unwittingly altered a trajectory of history in a single moment the night of July 5th, 1954. Igniting a spark and starting a firestorm. This Book illustrates what happened. Steps Elvis Presley took to move from obscurity and poverty to superstardom. This could never be explained in today's context or terms.1954 is different compared to today. Destiny was no accident! The world was a different place.

The firestorm Elvis caused, transformed the definition of what popular music represented. Elvis went on to transform the music/entertainment industry landscape; along with it, changed our culture. He transformed the world, and how we see one another. Elvis and Rock and Roll Music became a catalyst for change. My objective: place the reader in the shoes of a young 19-Year-old Truck driver from Memphis. Recreating and describing people and moments defining a young Elvis. His audition failing, the moment, he and Rock and Roll Music became his destiny.

The Baz Luhrmann film "Elvis" was an important, Like Elvis himself, it was an exciting visual and musical film experience. But it left out his whole story. The people and environment that defined him. The initial stir was not Elvis' shaking. That came a year later. It was THE MUSIC he created causing a revolution. People reacted initially to his music. His effect on music and pop culture occurred before the world had ever seen him perform!

The film focused only on Elvis' physical attributes, leaving out his contribution of creating Rock and Roll music experience. Not showing his true genius as the man who virtually transformed Rhythm and Blues into Rock and Roll. With Television catapulting him to international stardom.

Within two years, Elvis went from the brink of a failed audition to the largest-selling recording artist in the world. He sold Rock and Roll Music to mainstream America. This is Elvis' journey from local Truck driver to his coronation as The King of Rock and Roll. I Hope you will experience the journey again with me as your guide."

ISBN: 1915343224ISBN: 1915343224Für den 05.12.2023 ist das 144 Seiten starke Buch "That'll Be The Day: The Birth Of Rock N' Roll" von "Sona Books" in der Ankündigung und dieses wird mit folgenden Worten beschrieben:

"That 'll Be The Day - The Birth Of Rock N' Roll takes you on a musical journey through the first decade of this extraordinary genre that has influenced popular music to the present day.
The book features the stories of the biggest rock & roll artists such as Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Chuck Berry through to The Beatles and the Stones and how they influenced fashion film and art to the present day. While Elvis Presley is the genre's undisputed 'King', other seminal figures in the rock and roll movement were key in bringing the new music to the mainstream mass market.

Step forward Fats Domino, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly - all exceptional talents whose hit songs soundtracked the major rock and roll years, ensuring, as the 1958 Danny and Juniors song put it; 'Rock and roll is here to stay'! Add to the roll call artists including Bill Haley, Ritchie Valens, the Big Bopper and Eddie Cochran. The ground-breaking talents of Elvis and his contemporaries made an incalculable contribution to music, which has inspired generations ever since."
