When I said that he wasn't special, I just meant like what he did and what the beatles did in no way can be compared. Elvis was big because he was something different than what was going on around him, his music wasn't different or influential in anyway.
So Elvis is more ,I think, influential as an icon then a musician.
Elvis is the highest paying dead celebrity. Because he has Graceland as well has all his records, and movies, and memorbillia. John Lennon is the second highest paying dead celebrity. That I am sure of. I just heard it on the television.
