I was trying to draw a modern day analogy to my 18 year old son about just how popular and influential Elvis Presley was. Love him or hate him, he was unquestionably monstrously popular and IMHO, extremely influential if not the “King of Rock and Roll”.
Is there anyone from the past couple of decades that I could use as an example of just how huge (not literally) that Elvis was? I can’t think of any but I’m not a fan of recent music. If I had to use a non-musical example, what would be a good choice?
