Jimi Hendrix liked Elvis,whom he saw perform in Seattle, in 1957.

So the problem is not Hendrix! The problem is not Presley!

The problem is the one who opened this thread and uses Hendrix as a tool, to claim all kind of shit!

I'm pretty sure the dude " decipherx1 " isn't a fan of neither.

So no use to answer!

Last time I checked this isn't a political thread!

Did he now?
Please tell us exactly where and when he said this.
What he actually said was that he was influenced by blacks and their music ... along with the likes of Dean Martin and other crooners.
So take your allegations that Elvis "stole" music and - like Mary J Blige - stick 'em up your fat arse.
Oh, and learn what Little Richard and BB King said about Elvis: that he stole black music is pure BS.
"Elvis was an innovator. He opened up the door for the rest of us" - Little Richard.
Begone, troll.
Could not have said it better!

Simply put, ELVIS is the KING because he outsold, outsung, and outperformed Chuck Berry and Hendrix in every sense.

Observer Rules is the absolute limit!! Her language and what it says about her mental state is indicative of her motivation in hanging out with Phillip Lean and taking him to the cleaners at the same time. Such is mad Observer Rules obsession with Elvis that finding his Aussie son up on the Central Coast was the greatest event in all her otherwise sad and hopeless life. When she got the chance to have sex with Lean and manage his affairs all her fantasies came true. Why she denies her link to a man who arguably will be greater than his father defies common sense. Unless, of course, she is hiding her financial interest in him from other members of the King's extended family. Shame on Observer Rules, SHAME.

Elvis did not see color he saw the character of someones actions and heart. Going to black churches and hanging out in black establishments of the 40s and 50s was not to suddenly decide to steal music-it was because he liked the people liked the sound-somehow the last few generations have made this sound like a bad thing????
Elvis listened to Dean Martin not because he said-man I want to copy his style-but because he liked the music. Same with opera singers, country singers and anyone else he listened to.
Same with Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, and Ray Charles they did not listen to the Grand Old Opry to steal-they listened because the liked the music-and it carried over into the music they made-pure and simple.
Claiming that anyone stole anything in styles and careers is futile if you are honest about it.
How about Appalachian mountain music-or Honky Tonk Hillbilly, or Carolina Bluegrass, or native Indian music which was heavy on beat-did the Indians steal music they had never heard.
Its funny if you point out "influences" on other artists-they are "legit influences" if you point out Elvis's influences ......he stole??? Double standard. America is called a melting pot because it melded all cultures, all heritage, all peoples-until that is recognised and not attacked we will have divides in this nation that are not needed and not helpful to us-as..a...whole.

Damn people are stupid. First of all Elvis was not a true rock star because rock music is ment to stand against white-collar Pro-American Conservative garbage. Elvis was a conservative, therefore making him a fake rock star. Just look up his letter to President Nixon and how he states that he LOVES America and how he's against the Black Panthers and the Hippies. A true Rock Star would not have gone against any of these people. And As for Jimi Hendrix? Well that Man could play a guitar BETTER WITH HIS TEETH than alot of people

Oh and I forgot to mention that there would be no rock music without Chuck Berry or Little Richard. Had they not taken Blues music and spead it up and used the electric guitar or scream when singing Elvis would be another conservative country music player.

Vatocolo520, whatīs the purpose of you having access to the internet if you remain totally ignorant of what went on in America in the last 56 years? Presley was the conservativeīs greatest enemy when he first appeared on the scene. The conservative media, even the KKK and the Caholic Church all issued statements against him and all throughout 1956. They were so intent in stopping his highlighting R&B music, which Presley loved as he was born in the pooprest state in the Union and moved at the age of 13, to the second poorest, that they labelled him a racist, an allegation that came from SEPIA, a white conservative owned mazazine aimed at Afrian Americans. When JET, owned by African Americans, investigated the claims, they issued a denial, and all of this in 1957. Hendrix was such a fan of Elvis that after seeing him in Seattle, in 1957, went to a midnight showing of "King Creole" in Paris, to which heīd gone in distress, as he had bombed in the UK the weeks prior, saw the movie and according to his brother, was reinvigorated to the point of going back to UK, and thatīs when he finally made it. if Presley became conservative in the 60īs and 70īs thatīs something that happens to most people who were once rebels.

And one last thing, had Little Richard not existed, there would still be Berry. Right? OK. Had Berry not existed, there still be Little Richard. Had both not existed, Presley would have still made his first 5 singles at SUN, one R&B song in each side, one C&W song in each side. And,, pleeease, donīt get on into an argument with me on this, since every one of the 5 R&B sides (Thatīs all right, Good rocking tonight, Milkcow Blues, Baby letīs may house and Mystery Train were written and recorded by 5 different African Americans, none of whom had even the remotest thing to do with either Little Richard or Chuck Berry and the reason is simple. They were from a previous generation of African american musicians, in fact , they were the ones who influenbced both Berry and Little Ricard, as well. Presleīs first hit with RCA was Heartbreak Hotel, which bears ZERO resemblance to anything ever recorded by either Little Richard and Chuck Berry. Presley first heard Little Richard in 1953, as he did Ike Turner, that same year, with his "Rocket 88, yet only heard Chuck berry in 1955, a full year before his recording his first single. he loved Berry, too, as did every one else in the world the moment they heard him. But to say that Presley would have not been Elvis, had Little Richard or Berry not been around, is wishful thinking on your part.

Well your observation is most certainly your opinion-subjective as to what you think rock music is meant to be.
Rock music was controversial, Elvis did not apologize for his music nor his movements on stage.
But to claim that rock was somehow meant to be a political statement when Elvis, Chuck, Richard and Jerry Lee pioneered it is wrong. These were 4 of the most unpolitical people of the 1950s-people wanted to inject "their personal politics into the issue of rock" but these gentlemen just wanted to make good music.
IN the mid 60s politics was part of the music-but not in the beginning.
And what I have just written is also "opinion" but I recognise it to be such.

Jimi Hendrix, like The Doors have a very limited appeal.

He could play blues and acid rock guitar.

At no time could he really be Elvis.

Apples and oranges.

Anyway, Jimi was an Elvis fan. He liked Elvis.

Being the King has to do with variety.

Elvis did it his way and his music has held up.

Elvis went all over the board musically.

All you would have to do is listen and it is there.

Elvis SIMPLY PUT was the best of all the styles of songs he entertained us with. He could take a drab song and make it number one on the charts for the "original writer" that's why ALL allowed him to use their music - they respected his talent.
