Please can someone explain to me why Elvis is regarded with such reverence - I have been exposed to his music for over 40 years now and I can find nothing which - in my opinion - makes it or him so outstanding. He was at best only ever a mediocre guitar player - certainly not in the same league as cochran or holly (although to be fair scotty moore from his backing band was pretty decent) his voice was nothing exceptional either, could move a bit (which got into trouble on tv), his acting ability wouldnt have got him onto coronation street - so what is it - the only thing i will concede is that he had an excellent manager. There must have been something so what am I missing ????????? I know this is going to get me a damn fine slagging but i have to ask the question and put the cat amongst the pigeons - so to speak.
