MINI BIO:

Dark, insolent-looking American rock n' roll idol who took the world, especially the teenage public, by storm in the mid-fifties and remained the world's top-selling record star for well over a decade. Nicknamed "Elvis the Pelvis" because of his hip-swivelling gyrations on stage - but films only rarely caught the electric arrogance that set audiences alight. The end came from drugs and a heart attack.
