There have been hundreds of books on The King, but this one takes a slightly different approach. Part of the MusicPlace Series, Elvis Presley: Memphis lays out Presley's story by visiting the places where the singer lived, recorded, performed and hung out. Some of the shrines visited included Sun Studio, the recording facility where he cut his first singles; the Peabody Hotel, the location of his senior prom; Lansky Brothers, the store where he purchasd his suits; and Ellis Auditorium, the hall where he first went onstage.

The book traces Elvis's life from his first home in Tennessee (located at 370 Washington Street) and follows him as he finds stardom, joins the Army, becomes a film star, and finally dies at his beloved Graceland. Along the way are chapters on his drug addiction, meeting the Beatles, the death of his mother, and appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Elvis Presley: Memphis is a short book, and though it doesn't go into deep detail, it does cover the major events of his life and where they happened. If you know everything about Elvis, you still may not know some of the facts hidden here.
