Subject: RE: info pls: 60s music & spirituality
As a devotee and long time student of Rock 'N' Roll I have come across several cases in quotes were the demi god in question claimed to be "The King of Rock and Roll". Little Richard has asserted thus, and so has Jerry Lee Lewis and of course Solomon Burke still tours with this statement as a poster headline I believe.Chuck Berry laid a valid claim not so long back, and Bill Haley was the first person to be dubbed TKOR&R others included Gene Vincent and Johnny Otis and Fats Domino. I don't remember the Aretha Franklin quote but if the answers is not one of the afore mentioned then I would be surprised if James Brown or Elvis had been so churlish as to profer the quote.But I am sure you will put us out of our misery Bruce -you always do.

Best Wishes
