The Britney Spears of his time is a lil harsh. Elvis did have a very soulful voice and really had a connection with people that britney spears could never have. Plus he never used autotune, guy had perfect pitch. When it comes to that time period i only have my father to lean on and his vast discograph of music. People have borrowed from others throughout time its what musicians will/have and will always do. Elvis succeeded in bringing rock n roll into the spotlight. I won't call him the king just early royalty.
