Elvis Aaron Presley was born on January 8, 1935 to parents with humble background in East Tupelo, Mississippi, nearly 35 minutes after his stillborn identical twin. His brother was buried the next day in an unmarked grave and later came to be known as Jesse Garon. Presley spoke of his brother throughout his life.

Elvis Presley launched his music career in 1954 and became a renowned figure soon after. However, in 1957, he was drafted into the US military and in mid-1958 he was asked to serve in Germany which is also the time he met his wife Priscilla Beaulieu, the daughter of a U.S. Air Force captain. He was discharged of active duty in 1960.

Elvis Presley had a manager named Colonel Tom Parker who had started working with Presley in 1956 and it was during his tenure that Presley shot to great heights of fame. However, throughout Presley’s career, Parker made sure the spotlight never fell on his personal life. It later emerged in the 80s that he was an illegal immigrant.

When Elvis Presley died 40 years ago — on Aug. 16, 1977 — TIME’s music critic Jay Cocks turned to one song to memorialize the king of rock ‘n’ roll: the 1955 tune “Mystery Train,” the lyrics to which began Presley’s obituary. It was one of the last of the early Elvis tunes released before he changed the world with Heartbreak Hotel and launched a new era for American music.

Only about two decades passed between that fateful recording session and the day he was found in his bathroom, on the floor, and could not be revived.

His death struck TIME’s critic as yet another chapter in the same old story about celebrities who die too soon, victims in part of their own success — and of the battle to be everything to everybody. In Elvis’ case, the struggle with being a sex object to his fans and a good Christian to their parents took its toll, as Cocks explained:

The actor, who fought in the U.S. Army at the Battle of the Bulge in World War Two, got his big break when actor Gregory Peck saw him in a theater production in 1950, which led to a contract with film studio MGM.

In 1954, Mr. Forrest shared a Golden Globe Award as Most Promising Newcomer Male with actors Hugh O'Brien and Richard Egan, (Egan co-starred with Elvis in ' Love Me Tender ' in 1956.) Steve Forrest worked in such films as 'The Longest Day', 'The Deerslayer', 'North Dallas Forty' and 'Mommie Dearest'. He also has had a number of roles in TV series including 'Dallas'. But he was best known for a leading role as Lt. Hondo Harrelson on the ABC crime drama series 'S.W.A.T.', which ran for 37 episodes from 1975 to 1976.
