They got their name when driving to one of their first gigs, and were passing through the small town of Little River.

What Rick the dick again fails to realise is that Elvis only became the biggest seller in the world after he died, not before.

And, of course, Rick's staggering lack of any musical knowledge beyond his minimal attraction to Elvis prevents him from knowing just how big Bing Crosby was in his day.

Oh well.

Seriously, Brian Johnson's first two AC/DC albums were good.
"Back In Black" and "For Those About To Rock"
However, Bon Scott was the original AC/DC.
Bon Scott had more boogie to him and was a superior singer.
I like old AC/DC much better because it was pure rock n roll.
I thought The Easybeats one classic was called, "Friday On My Mind"
That's it Friday on my mind. Classic rock staions in Seattle still play it.

He was (very probably) the biggest seller prior to 1977, but it wasn't made official until after his death.

In terms of record sales, Elvis dying was the best thing that ever happened to him.

Who was the biggest before 1977? I'm guessing the Beatles and I hope it isn't Michael jiveass Jackson.

Good glad to hear it wasn't the king of the floons. I would think the Eagles or maybe ACDC would be in the top ten best selling groups.

I've haven't heard it in years.

There are a lot of songs that classic rock stations played long ago.

I just don't hear them played on any station anymore.

It was replaced with a 90's and a modern rock set list.

Of course, I still hear most of the popular 70's and 80's bands.

I remember still even hearing these songs in the early eighties:

"They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha Ha"
"Puff The Magic Dragon"
"Lies"
"Friday On My Mind"

They wouldn't dare play that stuff today.

I don't mean to be off topic but "Left A Job In The City" arrived.

Wow. What a fantastic audience CD and Elvis MSG show from 6-9-72.

It is nearly flawless.

If you haven't heard it yet, check it out.

Elvis was pissed because of Jackie Kahane was booed before the event.

Elvis kept the banner down but he sang everything really well.

Excellent performances.

I have ordered my copy, am looking forward to it.

And the New York audience was right on the money: Kahane deserved to be booed, he was a terrible comic, just like Sammy Shore who preceded him in the Elvis world (and whose son Pauly has inflicted even worse on the world).

I agree Pauly Shore isn't very funny in fact he's lame.

I bought my copy of "Left A Job In The City" with "Double Chicago"

The quality sound of the MSG concert was well worth the investment.

It is pretty close to one of the best audience recordings ever made.

Yeah, Jackie Kahane wasn't funny and was truly terrible.

But the the new CD changes the view of what I previously believed.

Elvis did an incredible concert that night.

Elvis does some slightly different versions and was in control.

The band and vocalists were tight and Elvis was in fantastic voice.

I kind of wish that he included "Reconsider Baby" and "My Babe"

"Double Chicago" claimed that both shows were from a superior tape.

However, I think my older sources of Chicago still sound better.

I just wanted them on silver disc.

The straight Arrow label is putting out some great Elvis boots.

Good comedy is hard to do because people laugh at different things.

Jackie Kahane should not have been on stage anywhere.

Have you ever seen a stupid movie and failed to see its humor?

And everybody else would like it.

Other times, I'd crack up and my friends wouldn't understand why.

I like the classic comedy the best.

The buddy movies always made me laugh.

It doesn't even have to be dirty.

But it is difficult to do a good comedy movie or act.

It is all about timing.

Rick I Beleive you . Elvis was the biggest . I am only 30 and can only research having not experienced it . The data from bing in the thirties does suggest he was the most succesful of all time . True , bing dropped greatly in the fifties
