The article comments on the influence of U.S. rock singer Elvis Presley on the rock world. Presley belonged to the era of film stars like Marlon Brando and James Dean. His co-appearance with any singer before him would have changed the nature of the occasion. His hair was shockingly long and greasy, combed back into what was referred to as a ducktail. His curled lip defied the convention that singers must be either smiling or soulful. Presley became the focus of rebel teenage culture in the 1950s.
