If you prefer white meat, you should think about going vegan.
I like dark meat, lamb, game and fishy fish. I wants to taste my animals.

If you guys eat any part of the meat you're just doing it all wrong. It's about chewing the bones & slurping out the sweet marrow. Only way to dine.

But could Elvis be considered an artist? He didn't write his own music, and was an adequate rhythm guitar player (it became more of a prop). His forte was in performing and delivery. And yep, boy could he deliver.
And Dylan was also a great influence on the Beatles. But the Beatles, IMO, were a very progressive band.
Here are a couple good articles on Lennon and Elvis, and when the Beatles met him....
Lennon's song "Starting Over" was John getting back to his roots, and done ala Elvis.

"panic" only comes from having real expectations
I have to agree with Mr. GAC about Elvis. And I would simply like to state that I believe Elvis was much more talented than he was allowed to show himself to be. The studio and the industry manipulated his talent and molded it into what they perceived he should be.
I just watched a special called "Elvis '56" about the year that he really took off.
It showed quite a few performances from that year, and I have to agree... I'm not sure how much of it was really about the music.
It went pretty much like:
1. 1st verse and refrain: sing with the whole "sneer" thing.
2. Solo: run around and convulse randomly while lead guitar guy plays a few licks
3. 2nd verse and refrain: back to the sneer
Seriously...I actually found it a bit odd. And I found myself drawing more similarities and comparisons of Elvis to Justin Bieber than Elvis to the Beatles.
