I'm not trolling you this time even though you may feel this way. I agree with you that Elvis most definitely shouldn't be the King of Rock and I already stated why in the past but he's basically the Britney Spears of his time.

I really think it should go to Chuck Berry

Yeah I read back though some posts and saw where you stated that. Some dude flipped out with your comparison to elvis and britt. Honestly I think that kinda makes sense. Both just more of a market fab than actual talent.

A stronger case could be made for Chuck B. being crowned the King def imo

neither am I trolling -srsly, I don't hear any of this multifarious genres - Hendrix didn't even play the blues that well - Red House has, in the words of the Emperor of Prussia when commenting on Mozart, too many notes. all I hear is just r n' b souped up in metallic rock, which is not to say I don't like it, but how much has it influenced the "general" sound of rock? no doubt the songs are good but the way Chas Chandler played his cards, they came out like pop songs. Only the Merman suite is that outstanding, but how many groups use that kinda sound?

I mean if technology in the 60s were like today, he would defo be an "innovator" since he repeatedly said he can't quite replicate the sounds in his head

and, of course, a lot of effects pedals and guitar thingummybobs are made to sound like him, but nobody actually does sound like him except for Eric Gales

and as to the extent of influence on rock, I only know that Black Sabbath's war pigs is a duplicate of if 6 was 9

whereas the bands that sound like the big four I mentioned I can't even count

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.
