What was the big deal about Elvis?


I'm an 80's kid, grew up knowing Elvis Presley as the King, but not really following his music besides a few snippets here and there. I'm listening to his recordings now. They're pretty simple progressions, and sound fuzzy (no faulting them for low fidelity). There has to be an X factor that made him a sensation if you were there. I can't see it, could anybody who was "right there" explain it to me? I'm not going to just read a wikipedia article to figure this out- it would be nice to hear from some authentic fans who made Elvis into the King of Rock and Roll.
