Michael Jackson is the king of pop. Let him annex rock and unify the kingdoms.

Who should be king? Hmm... not sure but I think Ike Turner should get some credit as the father of rock 'n roll or something for writing "Rocket 88".

But then again, Elvis died in '77.
...and was white.

That's not a fair statement. Hendrix was even more popular during his time (I think), so it probably came as a shock to alot of people when he died. Plus....when Obama gets shot, you'll hear ALOT about him....and Obama and Hendrix are black. Let the bitchfest begin!

This is the right answer. The only reason Chuck Berry is not the King of Rock and Roll is because of his skin colour.

Chuck berry is the real King of Rock and Roll.

I had to put Chuck Berry down, as most of today's premier guitarists in the Rock and Roll world, consider Chuck to be one of their heroes. He has probably done more to inspire the musicians of today.
