Aug 16th, 1977.
On this day Elvis Presley was found dead lying on the floor in his bathroom by his girlfriend Ginger Alden, he had been seated on the toilet reading 'The Scientific Search For Jesus'. He died of heart failure at the age of 42.

He was born into poverty in a two-room house in Tupelo, Mississippi. His older twin brother, Garon, was stillborn.

His first record for RCA, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’, was also his first US No.1.

In Switzerland it is illegal to cut a front lawn while dressed as Elvis.

He starred in 31 films.

He was fired from his job at Loew's State Theatre during 1952 after punching a fellow usher who told the manager that Elvis was getting free candy from the girl at the concession stand

Elvis holds the record for the most entries on the US Hot 100 chart with 154.

Elvis became the first rock 'n' roll artist to be honoured by the US Postal Service with a stamp.

In 1957, Elvis purchased the stately mansion 'Graceland' in Whitehaven, Memphis. He paid $102,500 for the property which had previously been used by the Graceland Christian Church.

In 1960, after completing his national service and flying back to America, he stepped on British soil for the first and only time in his life when the plane carrying him stopped for refuelling at Prestwick Airport, Scotland.
