#Elvis80 Celebrates Elvis Presley at 80 Years Today - See Iconic Kiss Picture And More

Posted in: , ,

Elvis Presley, who some refer to as "The King of Rock and Roll" would've been 80 years old today if he had lived. To celebrate this milestone, fans are honoring the music legend who died in 1977 - at the age of 42 - with pictures from his greatest years.

The June 30, 1956 photo above shows "The Kiss" at the Mosque Theater in Richmond, Va. The photograph is included in the book, "Elvis and the Birth of Rock and Roll, " by author/photographer, Alfred Wertheimer, published by Taschen. UTS reports that the image is "Wertheimer's most iconic photograph, and the identity of the woman was unknown until she came forward in 2011".
