Elvis most athletic rock star ever?

Mon Jan 09, 2006 2:45 am

Except for the last 2 or 3 years, Elvis had to be the most athletic looking rock star of all time. Who else compares?

My vote would go to David Lee Roth. If you believe most of the MMM's, Elvis couldn't even dance and wasn't that great of an athlete.

David Lee Roth all the way baby!!!

For living proof, jus watch the JUMP or Panama Videos...

Unbelievable! 8)

Elvis's build

I didn't really mean athletic ability, I meant his athlete build. When I'm comparing him to rock stars, I mean the REAL rock stars, the beatles, rolling stones, etc.....Some folks don't even know who David Lee Roth is....

Please tell me that's not really true. I thought everyone knew all members of The Marshall Tucker Band.

Johnny and Dorsey Burnette were quite good at boxing (golden gloves competitors). Jackie Wilson always impresses me with his dancing act. Still my vote goes to Britney as well. I can imagine myself with her Rock 'n' Roll quite a bit. :lol:

Shot-putters are athletes too, aren't they ?

From 1968-1970, EP had a perfect build, I don't care what rock star you stack up against him. As far as athletic goes, I think the word graceful pertains more to Elvis.

Anyone with functioning vision can see otherwise. Elvis had some fantastic and unique dance moves (particularly in the 50s), which were deceptively difficult to perform.

My vote goes to the always limber and graceful Freddie Garrity of Freddie and the Dreamers fame.

Indeed, Sir Elton is a few doughnuts away from a sumo suit.

Random fact- David Lee Roth studied karate with Ed Parker in the late 60's/early 70's.

I think props also need to go to Madonna and Sheryl Crow as very "athletic" rockers. It's obvious these gals work out.
