Because of his hectic schedule, health problems, and other personal issues his health begun to fail.
Over the next few years, Elvis's health continued to get worst till he was found unresponsive on floor of his home; Elvis Presley was pronounced dead on August 16, 1977.
President Carter made a statement crediting Presley's contribution to the music world, and thousands of people gathered at Graceland to view the body.
In 1982 Graceland was opened to the public, and in 2006 it was made a national Historic landmark.
Whatever you may think of this man, he helped to shape Rock and Roll music. He was nominated for 14 Grammys, of these he received three; he also received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award before he was 38 years old, and Elvis was inducted into four music halls of fame.
Elvis Presley also Inspired future Rock and Roll Legends, helped to break down segregation, and helped to open the door for many African-American performers.
LONG LIVE THE LEGEND
ELVIS LIVES FOREVER IN ALL OUR LIVES AND MEMRIES -
