Elvis changing the face of country & bluegrass music

Aug 17, 2009 Full story: www.examiner.com 33

Who would have thought that over 40 years ago, a boy from Tupelo, Mississippi, would make an impact on not only the world of rock and roll, but also in country music? Growing up, he would listen to the sounds of the Grand Ole Opry coming over the radio on a Saturday night and the next morning, hear the soulful sounds of the church choir.

Thanks Linda.

Elvis fans replying to the MJ fan are helping to ruin this Elvis Presley Forum.

I tried reasoning with him and failed. So what's the point in encouraging him any further?

Maurice: Your right. However, keep posting as many articles about elvis as you can. Iam getting fed up with all this other Stuff. Just keep ignoring him. I, for one, am enjoying your stories and poems.

Maurice: Than I would say that he definitely won't go there. Why don't the elvis fans that want to argue with him just go to an MJ forum. Maybe they can give those people some info on elvis that they don't know

Linda, Some fans are just arguementative for the sake of it, mistaking cleverness for intelligence.

The ability to analyse stories is often beyond some here and they just don't take the trouble to improve their own minds.

Writers and thinkers like, Schopenhauer, Neitchze, and GB Shaw were noted for their arrogance and I guess a little has rubbed off on me from reading their works back in the 60s.

That's why I treat it all here with a twinkle in my deep brown Irish eyes. ;-)

I don't consider a person arrogant or a know it all if they are trying to be informative, but I guess a person with a closed mind would think that way.

Spot on, Linda.

Elvisology isn't exactly rocket science, we Elvis fans are ALL part of the unfolding and rich tapestry that illustrates a lovely story with new and interesting threads being added almost on a daily basis.

A closed mind is a huge handicap! It often leads to unjustified envy of others.

well, why are you turning every Elvis thread into a discussion about Invading MJ fans and Elvis fans responses to them?

Some exaggeration there nina.
I'm attempting to get Elvis fans to concentrate on threads devoid of KB50MJ's nonsense.

Most of us have tried debating with him, then when he feels he is losing the debate he turns to insulting Elvis and his fans.

It wasn't long ago he almost filled this webpage with MJ threads, on an Elvis Forum.

That's because KB50MJ was once again posting a line of MJ themed threads this morning.

Cause and effect comes into play.

I beg you Linda please don't encourage Scotty. He is as guilty as any MJ poster of taking threads were they don't belong. Do not encourage him. He is so old and set in his ways that he doesn't know which way is up. He tells Elvis fans here he is providing a service. No one asked for his service. We're not playing follow the leader here. Scotty generates just as much negative as any poster here. Nina asked a very valid question but true to form old Scotty just does not know what she is talking about. He can't see what she is talking about either. nina is wrong. Isn't that right Scotty? Only most here know she is right on the money.

Do you get in a car and travel a few miles to another town in Canada to post? LOL.

Linda is far to smart to fall for your nonsense.
Everyone here is. ;-)

I'm banking on Linda being smart enough to figure you out. All she has to do is stay tuned. Your true colors also show up. Just ask nina. Just ask dolbyscat. Many more. Why don't you just go and brush up on your world war 2 history. That's something you need some more shcooling on.
