The poll of course omitted to tell the age group of those who voted and as theoldscudder pointed out this reflects to the advantage of some of the names on the list who couldn't hold a candle to names such as Buddy Holly,Eddie Cochran and of course Elvis who's status and achievements are beyond any doubt.

Bon Jovi is a joke. He doesn't belong here at all. At least if youre gonna vote an Italian Jersey rocker on the list make it Springsteen. Old Scudder - with the way these votes went, I'm grateful Elvis was even no. 2. Ozzy? Slash? Oh my. You know those who voted for these dont know who Gene, Eddie, Jerry Lee, Chuck, or Fats is. Meatloaf? One hit LP? Please!

Elvis not #1. No Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Jerry Lee. These guys were gods in the UK. I guess the older people that are still around are either too old, too tired, or just too disinterested to vote anymore. Bon Jovi? Bon Jovi? There's only one King & it ain't Freddie Mercury.

Freddie Mercury was excellent but all rockers drew something from Elvis Presley.Elvis should be no 1 because he had the voice,the looks,the moves and of course unbelievable charisma.Somebody on youtube put it nicely when they said Elvis was the first person to be truly cool and he tore up every song he did.
