Welllll...Silly argument, but, Jab I believe the quote you are referring to was by John Lennon and he said ( upon being asked his reaction to Elvis' death), "Elvis died when he went in the army." Perfect, cynical Lennon, right on, loved the guy. Me. I'm off to Strat Land...



Actually I never heard that quote, but I don't really pay attention to what Lennon said anyhow. I liked them better in the early 60s when everything they said in interviews was funny!

Klas - How could I leave out the Girl Groups?! Some of those songs by the Crystals, Ronnettes, and Shangri-la's send shivers down my spine. They were the important link between Doo Wop and the Motown Sound. And the songwriting was amazing.

Funny how links in music occur. I recently worked a Snoop Dog show up here in Kanada and was struck by the very connection you speak of. His horn section and drummer and keys etc, in other words a real band were all over Motown and brought a cool vibe to his otherwise pointless stoned shenanigans. It sounded like New Motown. Mixing genres like that can be quite interesting, thus the link to those Girl Groups of the 60's and whoever wrote produced and arranged and played them.

don't fergit "beatles" was a play off of "buddy holly and the _crickets_" and buddy's influences were C&W and R&B, which created a mix of "hillybilly" and "black" music.

ah, the seven degrees of kevin bacon.

Maybe there's something wrong with me, but I never liked Elvis. I used to like the Beatles, but the fact that Paul McCartney just wont go away is curing me of that. Buddy's damn annoying, what with his facelift and comeback tours and whatnot.

Yea, Buddy at the ACC was a waste of time...someones anyway. But I disagree about the lift.

I always thought the Beatles were way overrated as a group and I just thought of them as a bunch of damn hippies. That is, of course until I bought the Carl Perkins DVD that was on HBO back in the eighties where Harrison and Ringo are there jamming with him. George Harrison is a huge legend at that point and he's just staring at Carl Perkins like he's some kinda god. That was so rad. Harrison is a hell of a guitar player himself but Perkins is untouchable in his own style. Mcartney put out a rockabilly record like six years ago. The Beatles were built on rockabilly.

Anyway, I still think as a band they are a bunch of damn hippies that sing flower child non-sense (except for that song "While my Slowly Guitar Weeps", that one's pretty cool).

So after all that, are you kidding?
Elvis built the house, the Beatles just played there for awhile.
