The history of the rock n' roll genre dates as far back as the late 40s. It is a popular genre that holds many talented artists from then and even now. In the beginning, the lead musical instrument was a saxophone or piano, but the guitar replaced those instruments in the mid-50s. Rock and roll is what influenced fashion, lifestyles, language, and attitudes. Today we have many types of rock music. Do you have what it takes to be a rock and roll know-it-all?
Let us introduce you to the Listicle Liege, the Article Aficionado, the one and only Nathan. Since creating his first photo collage at the age of five with images clipped from his mom’s Chatelaine magazines (all of them), it’s been nearly impossible to stem this one’s tide of visual learning. Be it the annals of history or the latest celeb gossip, Nathan has probably researched it, likely already has a folder of relevant photos on his desktop, and definitely learned a lot of interesting facts to go with those images. Whereas most well-read adults have bookshelves full of classic literature, Nathan’s stacks are composed of National Geographic and TIME special editions and a curated section of first-grade readers (for inspiration). If you prefer picture books to wordy novels, listicles by Nathan are right up your alley.
Born in Tupelo, Mississippi on January 8, 1935, was Elvis Aaron Presley. In 1948, he and his family moved to Memphis, Tennessee. After graduating from high school, Elvis began singing locally as "The Hillbilly Cat," later signing with RCA in 1955. A year later he was cast in his first acting role, a supporting part in "Love Me Tender." It was the first of thirty-three movies he starred in. On May 1956, it was Robert Johnson, the reporter at Memphis Press Scimitar that wrote an article calling Elvis, "The fledgling king of rock ‘n' roll." In 1958, Elvis was drafted into the military where he later met his future wife, with whom he had a daughter. Throughout the 60s, Elvis settled in Hollywood, starring in movies, musicals, and co-starring in other movies. He made a huge comeback in the 70s with live concert appearances with 57 sold-out shows. Touring all over the United States, he appeared in at least 500 live shows. Soon his marriage ended and combined with the stress of traveling and depressants took a toll on his heart. At the age of 42, Elvis had passed away due to a heart attack. He had sold 600 million singles and albums all over the world. To this day Elvis Presley is the only performer to get inducted into three different music "Hall of Fame."
