Elvis Presley Under The Covers by Michael Madden - YouTube

I have frequent debates with my son about the merits of modern artists such as Justin Bieber versus The King himself. He doubts the popularity of Elvis Presley based on his number of YouTube hits.

It cannot be denied that JBs hits are measured in the hundreds of millions, but that is probably because he performs in the digital age.

The six songs featured in Elvis Under The Covers have the following Youtube stats...

Can't Help Falling In Love 47.5m
In The Ghetto 44.4m
Don't Be Cruel 8.2m
Heartbreak Hotel 10.9m
Jailhouse Rock 79.2m
Teddy Bear 2.1m

Not bad for someone who died almost 28 years before YouTube was created!

Elvis Under The Covers - by Michael Madden


2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the death of The King Of Rock And Roll, Elvis Presley. Elvis Under The Covers explores the legacy of The King in terms of the artists that have covered six of his most popular songs.

The foreword for the book will be written by your very own Mike Sanchez.
With contributions from Mike Sanchez, Al Kooper, Mary Coughlan and (hopefully) many more, the book aims to illustrate the everlasting impact that Elvis Presley has had on popular music.
The book is scheduled for release in August 2017, marking the 40th anniversary of the death of The King.

Keep checking back for more information. #elvisunderthecovers
