Remembering 'The King'
On Aug. 16, 1977 the music world was shocked when the King of Rock 'n Roll died at the young age of 42.
It was a moment that brought the entertainment world to a standstill, when the actor, musician and singer died at his Graceland mansion. By then, Elvis had appeared in 33 films, won a Grammy Lifetime Achievment Award (at just 36 years old!) and had served his country in the U.S. Army.
Decades after his sudden death, fans are still flocking to his Graceland mansion to remember the legendary entertainer.
Take a look back at some of the King's highlights through his tragically short but eventful life.
Elvis' bible was a hot property at a weekend auction of his memorabilia in merry old England.
Elvis' dirty underwear, not so much.
The King of Rock 'n Roll's well worn bible, used from 1957 until his death 20 years later, commanded $94,600, almost double the auction house's estimate. It included hand-written notes scribbled in the margins.
His unwashed and apparently soiled (!) underwear, worn under his iconic white jumpsuit in a 1977 concert, failed to meet the $11,000 minimum bid.
Which means there is a God.
