1960's Music Elvis Presley Elvis Presley, The King of Rock, was born on January 8, 1935 in Memphis, Tennessee and lived there at his house called Graceland. He was in the army from March 24, 1958 to March 23, 1960. In the 1960’s Elvis sang, danced, and appeared in movies. In the 1950’s he was the most popular performer but was the second top performer in the 60’s behind the popular band “The Beatles”. He got married to Priscilla Beaulieu and had a daughter but later got divorced. Elvis is sometimes considered the most crowd-pleasing American artist. Elvis Presley died August 16, 1977. The Beatles The Beatles, an English rock band, were the most popular group of their time. They were a huge hit in the 1960’s when they started touring. They were sometimes called “The Four Englishmen”. They became famous all around the world when they toured in the U.S. in 1964. They were first looked by Brian Epstein, but when Epstein died the band slowly started to break up. In 1970 The Beatles officially broke up. The Twist The Twist was a huge dance craze in the 1960’s. It was originally created by Hank Ballard in the 1950’s, but was made popular by Chubby Checker, who was only 19, in 1960. It was a #1 dance all throughout the 60’s. Chubby Checker even made a song called “The Twist” which was also at the top of the carts in the 60’s. Music in the Sixties A focal point in the 1960’s was rock n’ roll music. It was not only for hippies but also for young people.
