So does Australia: we give more foreign aid per capita than any other country.

However, I believe in fixing one's own problems first before taking on those of others.

As the guy who hosts Tosh.0 says, "Saturday Night Live was never funny. The only reason you thought it was, was because you were allowed to stay up past 9 o'clock to watch it".
It is crap, and always has been.
I disagree - Saturday Night Live WAS funny!

Every time there is a disaster America is there to help some poor country out.We even give money to Countries that hate us like The middle East.Maybe lacking knowledge about other cultures but World history I'm afraid you are wrong on that one.Only thing our Education doesn't teach is how to speak in several languages like a lot of European countries do.
I agree with you here, Bubba - America has bailed out many other countries, but, of course we continue to be disliked by some of them, even so.

I loved it back when Steve Martin and Dan Ackroid and Belushi and Chevy Chase were on it. Eddie Murphy was funny too.Gilda Radner was a funny chick I liked her and Jane Curtain.

King Elvis,you're not the type of person who SEES THE BIG PICTURE OF ANYTHING,DO YOU,ROLLING STONE magazine specializes in music related to the 60's counterculture and beyond,and are preferential to those artists and they are particularly fond of Rock n'Roll BANDS,I've read a lot of their articles on Elvis over the years and they definitely are biased against him,they either criticize the man outright or they pepper him with LEFT HANDED COMPLIMENTS,and this is so for 2 reasons.NO.1;he emerged in the 1950's,not the 60's,GENERATIONAL BIAS.And NO.2,he outsold the musical heroes of THEIR GENERATION,THE BEATLES,the latter being particular galling to these people,and this stupid list they put out,of the greatest artists of all time,in THEIR estimation,always puts The Beatles at no.1[BIG SURPRISE]and their votes for The Beatles are as much ANTI-ELVIS votes as they are pro Beatle votes,more truth for you,Kingster,peace out.

Really, Rick?

Really, that's the story you're sticking to, is it?

You've said "either" here, which means two options: outright criticism or left-handed compliments.

And that is pure, straight-up outright nonsense.

Get it through your head: Elvis is NOT beyond negative criticism; no artist is.

I have subscribed to RS for 24 years now, and I can categorically state that the majority of Elvis articles (both about him and his latest releases) have been positive.

Feel free to prove me wrong with the titles of articles and their authors.

Any time will be fine.

Damn why doesn't Rolling stone magazine print an article about me. I've been to all 4 corners of the USA and have sang for drunks in numerous bars and street corners. I've played for drinks and can sing Elvis-Englebert-Beatles and never even once mentioned in Rolling Stone. They must me bias against me because I started out in 1962 singing and passing the bottle around at a campfire then in the Box Cars while riding the rails.Every hobo know who I am but yet Rolling Stone won't mention me. I tell you man It's a dog gone shame man. Not even a left handed compliment.

So many drinks and bumming for drinks and singing for bums and anyone else who would listen and still Rolling Stone has a bias against me damn it.You know it hasn't been easy entertaining in box cars and singing at truck stops. Also being Elmer Jackson the almost famous singing drunk I have an image to uphold but still no mention in Rolling Stone magazine. shaved off my stubble Hell I even died my hair jet black and for my photo on my newest CD and still there is a bias against me from the 60's counter culture writers for Rolling Stone man.

It would be interesting to read reviews of Elvis albumns back in the seventies, compared to other artists of the time.

I agree and do wonder what the reviews would have to say.The 70's exploded with so many good bands from the Eagles and ZZ TOPS and everything in between.I'm still a big fan of Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers and Bad Company.

Oh, so now they're PREFERENTIAL.

Big difference between that and being "BIASED AGAINST".

OBVIOUSLY they're preferential to 60s music ... THAT'S when the mag was created, Einstein!!

The FACT remains: Rolling Stone holds Elvis in the highest esteem, and neither he nor his music are beyond negative criticisms.

You contradicted yourself in your last post,Kingster,and in the process you PROVED the point I've been making all along,ROLLING STONE is a magazine that is preferential to 60's music and the subsequent generations influenced by those artists,Elvis didn't follow the 60's counterculture agenda,either socially OR MUSICALLY either,the styles of music that Elvis cut his teeth on are the styles of music the 60's counterculture DISMISS[Country and Western,Gospel,romantic ballads,Rockabilly,etc..]and therein lies the BIAS,along with the fact that he emerged in the 50's,and not the 60's.But to me,these people sound very foolish,because look at the results Elvis's musical approach have earned him,you've heard the old expression `you can't knock success',right,but that's exactly what the 60's counterculture media is doing in Elvis's case,KNOCKING HIS SUCCESS,peace out.
