Yeah, and also in Sweden´s biggest newspaper "Aftonbladet" all readers were given the opportunity to wote for the question "Is Elvis the greatest rock´n roll star ever in history?" Guess who won with 73% ?! The result was so overwhelming that they had to ask the question again but with other artists as an option, so this time it went "Who is the greatest rock star ever?" People could vote for Sinatra, Aretha F, Dylan, Lennon, Marley, M Jackson etc... Elvis still came first with 51% of all votes, and Lennon came second with 8%. I guess that sums it all up... -Swede´s love Elvis!

Ps: Actually the second question was "Who is the greatest ever of all times?" Wich explains why "non" rock options was included....
