How about knowing more about this subject?

Elvis Presley is a cultural phenomenon like few others. In your brief 29 years of his life, he fused black music with country, brought the newly created rock’n’roll to the masses, and became beloved by Americans, who proclaimed him king. Even without having performed outside the United States, his name has become part of the world’s imagination, someone as well known as the pope or the queen of England. The movie ‘Elvis’, which is still in theaters and also available on HBO Max, tells the life of the King of Rock, from childhood to his death, as a great flashback of Colonel Tom Parker, a crooked businessman who discovered and staked his chips in the singer when he was still at the beginning of his career. To comment on the film, we call Adriano Ferrari, musician and admirer of the singer.
