Documenting the life and career of history's most popular (and, many say, best) entertainer is a daunting task, because everything Elvis touched and everything he did seemed to make history by dint of his unprecedented fame. So I've taken the time to create a series that breaks The King's life up into one big year-by-year timetable, in order to better understand the forces that led to his rise and fall.

It was the year Elvis finally met the Beatles (or the other way around, depending on where your loyalties lie). But 1965 was also the year Elvis saw God, dropped acid, refused to record, and asked himself why he was Elvis -- and not all on the same night, either. Read more here about the year 1965 in Elvis' professional and personal life.
