I'd have to say Elvis. He put Rock and Roll on the map. He didn't event it per say but he sure did inspire young people everywhere to go to dance halls! My nana absolutely loves him. Her sister thinks he's alive and that he pretended to die so he could get out of the music business (he would have enough money to retire). I think that's rather far fetched. I would just let her think what she wants, if it makes her happy.

I'm a fan of Little Richard too. I need to listen to Chuck Berry, can someone name an album I should start with?

Chuck Berry - The Great Twenty-Eight (1982)

This one would probably be the best place to start. It's a greatest hits album with all the classic Chuck Berry songs from 1955 to 1965 on it.

Screamin Jay Hawkins is the true king of Rock n Roll.

I'd say Chuck Berry even though I'm only a VERY casual fan of 50's music in general. Truthfully, the history of that era and what happened then is more interesting to me than the majority of the actual music, in my opinion. Having said that, it should NEVER be ignored though. In short order, we probably wouldn't have had rock and roll as we know it without the contributions of Chuck.

Elvis all the way. I often imagine what would have happened if he didn't derail his music career by making all of those silly movies.

Elvis. My opinion, its him above everybody else... and I love Chuck Berry, basically learned rock and roll guitar from him... and James Brown.

But Elvis is the King, in my world.
