OK, I’ve never seen this brought up before (sorry if it has been), but I thought it deserved to go in great debates: Who’s more influential in rock music, The Beatles or Elvis Presley?
I like Elvis, but I’ve always been a Beatles fan, myself. Elvis came first, of course (and I know there were others before him, but for the purposes of this post, ignore them), but I’ve always thought of Elvis as merely a performer. The Beatles, on the other hand, wrote and performed their own music, and introduced a lot more different styles to rock music. Plus, I simply like their music better.
So whaddaya’ll think?
