Marsh, Dave


Based solely upon the hard facts of his career-the most Top Forty hits (107), the most Top Ten hits (38), the most consecutive #1 hits (10), & the most weeks at #1 (80)-Elvis Aaron Presley's place among the pantheon of rock & roll legends seems secure. Indeed, Elvis's records continue to sell well today, a full twenty years after his death. Author Dave Marsh delves into very aspect of Presley's life & art, pursuing the two solid sources of evidence that remain from the performer: sight & sound. With a mature & experienced eye, Marsh-a longtime editor & rock critic at Rolling Stone Magazine-confronts the myths about Elvis's music, analyzing his gripping mix of gospel, country, & rock. To punctuate these fascinating insights, hundreds of black & white photos from every stage of Elvis's career accompany the text, showing in pictures how the King's life played out in his songs. Using these two indisputable facets of the King's legacy, Marsh builds a seminal mosaic of the tragic trajectory of this utterly American hero. Compassionate & fair, Elvis is a tremendous resource for everyone who has come under the spell of this great musician, actor, & performer.Marsh, Dave is the author of 'Elvis', published 1986 under ISBN 9780517605202 and ISBN 0517605201.
