The Young One

Just like The Beatles would do, a decade later, Elvis unchained something.  Evoking the freedom of a well-off youth, he was a revolutionary in his own way.

Unfortunately, he couldn't split. 

When the sixties set in, his star began to wane.  He was someone of the past. 

He belonged to a generation that showed the need for an almost inarticulate liberation, but it was not as creative and innovating as Pop was.

Elvis lost his grasp but had the weird idea to make a come-back at the end of the sixties. 

Though he remained a remarkable singer, his looks were gone and his new work was bad to awfully sentimental.

But never there was any doubt that the King's fifties are just fabulous.
