Will there be a more famous american wordlwide than elvis presley?

decades after his death and i heard that obama is the 2nd most talked american after elvis !

imagine obama became resident and RIGHT NOW HIS FAME IS in PRIME but still the most famous american wordlwide is elvis!

i mean what is it so great with Elvis and americans so many years after his death they still advertise him worldwide (like they do with coca cola lol) ??


guys michael jackson sold 350 million albums and now new generation does not know him u while everybody still now elvis and he sold 1,1 billion records!

smokey u have any proof for what u saying??u could go to jail for what u saying u know if someone press charges on u!

    The thing is that Elvis' fame will someday wane. While he sold many records, the musical style will be in another 50 - 100 years, an anachronism. When you consider that there is music written before the United States was ever founded, that is still being performed today, that's some fairly incredible staying power.

    I'm not saying Elvis will likely be forgotten - he won't. But his name will not be on the tip of everyone's tongues as it is now. He was in the proper place at the proper time ... television was in its growth stage, and everyone was captivated by a new form of music on a new medium that made it available. He was great at what he did ... no doubt. And while he'll be remembered, it probably won't be with the same force as Handel, Mozart, Bach and some others who continue to amaze and inspire hundreds of years later.

    When you're studying music theory, it's not Elvis that one goes to. He was an amazing performer who did marvelous things, but his fame will fade ... not away, but it will diminish.
