Elvis For me, always has. But The Man in Black ( Johnny Cash) has grown on me in recent years

I can say this. In my early days (mid eighties) i worked for a photography company and we would do family studio portraits in peoples homes. Travelleing around the country doing it.

Tacky stuff artistically but going into homes across Australia i can say i was simply amazed at how many homes are shrines to Elvis Presley.

Of course you would see others that had beatles or that jew with the whinney voice that didn't actually sing properly but nothing like the Elvis fanatics.

So for long term impact on the audience i would say Elvis.

I thought the question was: "Which Dead Rock Icon would have the most impact on music today?"

That implies if these 4 artists were around today, making music, which one would be most influential. I know they all influenced music, at their time, but I went with Cobain because he was more recent and could possibly be making music today if he hadn't taken his own life.

Elvis and Hendrix, had to pick only one, I'd say Elvis, but both would change the musical direction in today's music climate I think.

Not Elvis, I mean by the 1970's his music was kind of....well....boring.

I'd have to say Hendrix, that man was a genius with a guitar.

It's a sad story....I think JL would have had a comeback had he not been killed.

I'd have to say Hendrix becuase nobody ever wnew what he'd do next; it wouldn't take him long to figure out a new style or technique to wow the industry.

Let us also remember Jerry Garcia. If it hadn't been for the Dead, there would be no jam band circuit, and so, no Phish or Dave Matthews.
