Elvis Presley might have been the greatest entertainer of all time. He came on to the scene about the same time as the Beatles. Many thought his hip-swinging dance moves were too R-rated for the day. In fact, TV networks would refuse to show him below the waste during his performances. Despite that, millions of fans could not get enough of him as his records skyrocketed to the top of the charts. Even his mediocre movies did fairly well at the box office. Elvis was a once-in-a-lifetime performer but his reliance on drugs cost him his life too soon. Today, we remember the King of Rock and Roll with Elvis trivia. So, let’s play Wiki-Pete-ia! Good luck!
