He is 75 today, and still alive and gyrating… in the hearts of his fans the world over. Though Elvis Presley died 33 years ago, they are not taking it lying down — with a three-day birthday bash at his last home, in Graceland.

The King died aged 42, from heart, prescription drug and weight problems. But around the world armies of Elvis faithful are flocking together to celebrate his life — his meteoric rise from humble showman (dismisssed by the older generation as vulgar) to teen idol and what many consider as the first real star of rock ‘n’ roll.
