Before Elvis, there was nothing. John Lennon
How much greater praise could be given by one music superstar, John Lennon, to another, Elvis Presley? But Beatles icon John Lennon was not the only musician to applaud the King of Rock and Roll. World renowned Twentieth Century American musician, conductor, composer, pianist, and author Leonard Bernstein said this of Presley, Elvis is the greatest cultural force in the Twentieth Century.
Could such plaudits be more profound, especially when offered by two esteemed global icons? It can’t get any better than to be known as the “greatest cultural force” in a century or to have someone say that before you there was nothing! Any individual with such laurels dripping from his cape certainly needs no further introduction.
