Well they say that you learn something new every day, and today is no exception. Would you believe that the king of rock and roll, the man with the blue suede shoes, Elvis Presley was blond? As bizarre as this sounds it is actually true. The man who can be instantly recognized, and is emulated all around the globe more than anyone else that has ever lived, had locks of gold.

Today Elvis is remembered as much for his singing career as for the numerous impersonators around the globe. But singing and dancing weren’t his only talents. Not long after striking stardom he made his acting debut in Love Me Tender. This movie was the first of 33 acting roles in movies.

In 1958, at the age of 23, he was drafted into the military and sent to Germany. It was while he was serving his time in the military that he met, and fell in love with his future wife, Priscilla Presley, who was nearly 9 years his junior (we’ll leave you to do the math on this one). Unfortunately, barely two decades into his career, he passed away at the age of 42 on August 16, 1977. The cause of death may have been prescription drugs or a massive heart attack.

So back to our fact about Elvis Presley being blond. Just to clarify, he was blond, not blonde, and we have the explanation of the difference here.
