Elvis

Hillbilly Cat, King of Western Bop, Atomic Powered Singer, King of Rock n Roll, King

Blogdex for Elvis Presley – with articles and reviews on separate lists. Sometimes there’s blogs that will mention Elvis but will use the Elvis Presley category – these will only be for blogs where Elvis is the main theme. I find that he often works as a metaphor in other contexts, but that wouldn’t really be an Elvis blog exactly.

  1. Do you have this link…seven hours of Elvis singing gospel music. He first started in churches and I remember him first for his gospel music which I always love. hugs, pat

    • Thank you Pat!

      Yes. I not only have the link, but I have these songs several times in my Elvis collection of LPs and CDs.

      Funny to think that if Elvis had had his dream come true, he might just have been a singer in the Blackwood Brothers quartet.

  2. Just a note about the poll – to be King – the person would have to have:

    1. been able to reach the mainstream audience;

    2. be considered one of their own by a teen-aged audience (which is why Bill Haley and Carl Perkins were left off – both were middle aged married men…);

    3. Be completely different than other performers musically and performance style; and

    4. have a unique look.

    Funnily enough, recording or trying to record at Sun records, wouldn’t be a qualification, but it certainly seemed to attract more than it’s share of the early rockers.
