How Old Would Elvis Presley Be in 2017?

This Is How Old Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll, Would Have Been Today

It's been almost 40 years since we lost Elvis Presley, and the upcoming anniversary of his death has sparked renewed interest in his life. One question that people always seem to ask is how old the rock and roll superstar would be now. Elvis was born on Jan. 8, 1935, in Tupelo, MS, to parents Gladys and Vernon Presley, and he was 42 years old when he tragically passed away from a heart attack on Aug. 16, 1977. This means Elvis would be 82 years old if he were alive.

Elvis usually celebrated his birthdays quietly with friends at his Graceland mansion in Memphis, TN, and since his passing, the Memphis and Shelby County Mayors have continued the tradition by holding an annual party called the Elvis Birthday Proclamation Ceremony on Jan. 8.
