Elvis Presley fans celebrated what would have been THE KING's 69th birthday by making him the biggest selling artist in American history.

Elvis was knocked off the top of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) all-time sellers list by Garth Brooks in 2000, who beat THE KING to 100 million album sales.

Presley would have turned 69 last week (08JAN04) and has now marked up a staggering 117.5 million units, thanks to recently released hits packages.
