Elvis Presley’s debut album took the world by storm in the 1950s. The King’s rock ‘n’ roll album challenged the music industry norm by introducing a completely different, new sound. Along with that new sound came exotic dance moves onstage that dazzled adoring fans. However, many critics took offense to Elvis’ unique style and questioned his influence on the youth.
In this sneak peek of Classic Albums – Elvis Presley, watch an exclusive interview with The King himself responding to criticism about his influence on teenagers. We also hear from music icons, including Keith Richards and B.B. King, as they share their early memories of listening to Elvis’ music.
