MSG had a poll on its site to decide which of the acts that performed there is the best. Of course Elvis is listed, and the results are in. More than 1 million votes were tallied.
Here's the top 10:
- Rolling Stones 53.9%
- Led Zeppelin 20.9%
- Elvis Presley, 20.6%
- Village People, 3.0%
- Concert for Bangladesh, 0.30%
- Fleetwood Mac, 0.28%
- The Who, 0.19%
- Bruce Springsteen, 0.15%
- KISS, 0.11%
- Johnny Cash, 0.10%
The top-10 finishers will move on to the next round, which begins December 3.
We all know Elvis tops this list or should I say any list.
Third is fairly respectable, given that Elvis only sang at MSG on four occasions. Bu look at number four - the Village People? What sort of poll was this?
What I find more incredible about this poll is that 2 guys who originally came from Sun Records, Presley & Cash, made this list. They both had humble beginnings but both had their own influence on te music world.
I wonder how long they can make this poll last for? Next time it will be the top five move on to the next round, then the top three. This poll could turn into a long running series.
so i guess the fight is not over yet,and yes Elvis should be on top of the list,now he is third at least his performances still amazes people,and think of this he leaves so many performers behind him I love those MSG Performances of Elvis Always El
The Village People have 3%, 17% behind Elvis! However, had Elvis gained just 0.4% more votes he would have beaten Led Zeppelin. Organised voting of course for them & the Stones, but next time Guys & Gals let's show that we can do the same! It's a matter of principle!
What a ridiculous poll. Village People before The Who, Fleetwood Mac and Bruce. Oh my. Elvis did quite well considering he only played there once and only the top 3 artists show over 10 %.
well steve you have a point there, i agree with you
Was there one vote for one person? Maybe Mick voted over & over again for himself. Just a thought.
I love YMCA - pity Elvis didnt sing it.
Hey, Elvis is the #1 SOLO artist on this list! The Stones and Zeppelin are groups, so that's something. So the top 3 artists (singular) who performed at the Garden were Elvis, Bruce and Johnny Cash. I can live with that list!
i wonder how many people who voted actually saw all or indeed any of these acts to compare them?
YMCA don't make me puke lol
As said before,I wasn't asked my opinion,so this list is a nonsense anyway. Someones having a laugh with the Villafe Peope,might as well put the Archies in as well.
have to agree with Steve V , and good remark by King Creole : Elvis was a solo atist . Should not be compared with groups. Always El.
