Elvis is The King of Rock. He began his career recording for Sun Records, the label started by legendary country and blues producer Sam Phillips. When "The Colonel," Tom Parker signed on to manage him, it brought together two men who invented the star-making machinery that made rock and roll what it was to become throughout the 20th Century and far into the 21st. His close relationship with the young songwriting team of Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller resulted in a string of mega-hits that established Elvis as a cultural icon and assured his place in rock n roll history. As rock critic Greil Marcus put it, "Elvis has emerged as a great artist, a great rocker, a great purveyor of schlock, a great heart throb, a great bore, a great symbol of potency, a great ham, a great nice person, and, yes, a great American."
