Happy Birthday Elvis!

Happy Birthday Elvis!

Friday, January 8th is the 75th birthday of The King, Elvis Presley. Elvis appeared on countless magazine covers while alive, and probably even more after he died in 1977. Interestingly enough, we've been unable to turn up a cover of Time or Life that Elvis appeared on while still living, although he did make it on the cover of People a few years before his death. 

The cover above is the January 1986 issue of Jamming!, from the UK. The cover illustration is an excerpt by Gary Panter, from the cover of his Invasion of the Elvis Zombies book. We've got a few more Elvis cover goodies for you on the next page.
