I hate to burst your happy bubble, but the Kurt Kobain thing is only temporary. Elvis is still the biggest seller.

For your info ,Elvis had he kept his earnings to himself like all the so called stars of today including Kurt, even at that time he would have had aclose to a billion! Find out! The charity he did and the money and gifts he gave away, I dont see that in any person till date. And Kurt my dear friend ,his wife like pricilla did the trick. Sold his record deals like pricilla traded on his name and glory!
And remember kurt was'nt even heard of while, Elvis was an household name!

Elvis used to like to watch young women wrestle topless wearing panties, but he didn't participate. Lennon and McCartney used to literally pass women back and forth. Jerry Lee Lewis said something like "everybody dates their cousin but at least I marry them." Rick James, who was brought up a strict Catholic, held a woman captive and sexually assaulted her. Dennis Wilson married Mike Love's illegitimate daughter just to pisss him off. Frank Sinatra's mother was an abortionist and he loved to hang around Sam Giancana who shared a b1tch with John Kennedy. John shared women with Bobby. Ralph Abernathy said MLK was a womanizer. Guiliani married his second cousin. Half the people who attend Ted Nugent concerts are rapist hillbillies. A quarter of the people who go to eminem and ludicrous concerts are on parole or probation. Everyone who goes to afroman concerts is stoned. Half the people at david allan coe concerts got girlfriends with electronic bracelets on their ankles. 20% of the people at Johnny Rebel concerts have been asssraped in prison by black guys. 30% of the people at Brian Wilson concerts are manic depressive. Half the guys at Martina McBride concerts are fantasizing about her; the other half are gay. 20% of the people at charley daniels concerts are on viagra. All the guys at LeeAnn Womack concerts got dragged there by their girlfriends but are ok with it once they saw her rack. 1% of the white guys at Rick James concerts got their girlfriends to go there by telling them it was Rick Springfield. 0% of the black guys at Rick James concerts knew he was from upstate NY (Buffalo). 0% of the guys at Madonna concerts are straight. Only 4 black people ever went to Jan and Dean concerts and they were hiding from the authorities. The weirdest behavior by the Beatles was forcing Yoko and Linda McCartney on us; that was worse than any of the crimes listed above...What's yellow and sleeps alone? Yoko Ono...What do you call a dog with wings?...Linda McCartney... Only 20% of blacks or whites know that the debarges are black, or that Tito Puente is Nicole Ritchie's father, or that Billy Preston and not Joe Cocker wrote "you are so beautiful". Did you know that if you lose weight your singing gets worse? That's why Solomon Burke is so good and Van Morrison is terrible now. 20% of black and white people don't know that without Michael Jackson and Brian Wilson the rest of the Jacksons and the Beach Boys, respectively, would have been working at carwashes. Half the white people think Freddy's dead was about Fred Sanford. Half the blacks think there were no roaches in Harlem until the Puerto Ricans moved in. Puerto Ricans have noticed that the only guys that grab their crotches more than blacks are italians. Puerto Ricans, but not blacks, knew that the IROC on Camaros meant Italian Retard Out Cruising. 20% of whites try to beat up a black guy after seeing Rocky movies; results are mixed except in Philadelphia. 20 % of blacks try to get white girls after seeing jungle fever or do the right thing; results are mixed except except around temple because the white girls are jewish. The only black guy who went to see Boston and BonJovi is now in a mental institution. The white guys who were in Jimmy Hendrix's band now work at an exxon station in Maiden, NC. Mick Jagger was once arrested for drug use while eating a snickers bar out of MaryAnn Faithful's vagina. I hope this clears things up. And don't get me started about that pervert Merv Griffin; he tried to rape Denny Terrio who taught John Travolta to dance and be Italian.

Are you serious? Name one tune that comes to mind that can rival "Kentucky Rain", or "In the Ghetto"? No way, absolutley no way. I'm not a big Elvis freak, but the guy sang some songs that will always stand the test of time with many generations to come. Sorry......Courtney Love needs to quit starting these threads.

I was agreeing that Elvis is bigger today than when he was alive. That is a compliment.

Difference is Courtney Love Pushed hard to sell his product and keep it alive....Elvis didn't need that..When Kurt Cobain died and I was told I said who? I can't imagine anyone saying that in regards to Elvis passing....
