Elvis Presley is the King. Simple as that. The last in the dinasty of the titans. His songs punctured the barrier between ‘black’ and ‘white’ music. His stage presence, appearance and moves were unseen and unheard of before. He emmited sexuality that the powers that be considered possibly corruptive for the millions of young Americans watching, so much so that cameramen were strictly forbidden to film him below the waistline during live broadcasts. His charisma is unparalleled 40 years after his untimely death. Does it live on through his descendants?
Elvis’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley married a Chicago-born musician Danny Keough, and they had two children: Benjamin Keough and Danielle Riley Keough.
