No disrespect meant, but DOC is so correct. Elvis' ability to create a presence on record and on stage coupled with Scotty's signature guitar playing are second to none. Elvis took the music to a brand new level while others played it relatively safe until Elvis. Elvis was the trailblazer and others followed the path he cut. The infamous quote by John Lennon fits at this point. I won't post it as I'm sure we all can recall it.

So the mobbing of Bill Haley in London was just an illusion?



The mobbing of Bill Haley in London took place in 1957. Elvis in voice, musical backing, hair style, clothes, stage presentation etc. was most definatly the "First Rock Star" as the world would come to know it.
