      That would be the late, great Freddie Mercury. Another dead Pop Monarch neutral

    lol UW - I'm a bit of a Lego fan. I may well have to check that out, pause, think about the positives of owning it, drink a bit more coffee, add in some vodka then buy it anyway smile

    What's Rock n' Roll?
    Do you mean Rock n Rolla, the latest film by Guy Richie? In that case, its Gerard Butler, closely followed by Tom Wilkinson smile

      Hey,  Rock is dead. No point in seeking a king for a country that does not exist.

      Please go to my hub if you feel like it:

        "Rock 'n' Roll ain't noise pollution/
        Rock 'n' Roll ain't gonna die"
              -AC/DC "Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution"

        Sorry to tell you and your hub, but you are wrong. Rock will last forever, and pop/rap couldn't & won't ever replace it!

        I guess you can't replace Elvis, but if I had a choice, it would definitely be AC/DC. They have been rocking since 1973 & they have the highest selling album by any band. Also their best album "Back in Black" has gone 22x diamond, second only to Michael Jackson.

      I agree that there will never be another King Of Rock N Roll, if there was though the only 2 contenders IMO would be Bono and Bruce Springsteen.

        yes, it is now become of our era to be progressive - so we have attached PROG before ROCK to revive it.  And from the grave came maynard james keenan, and his hair is better than Elvis', too.

      I personally believe that artists these days are just not what they used to be. They all want to be as big as Elvis etc, but I think its clear to see that that's never going to happen!

      Does anyone really believe that there is an artist out there today that will be bigger than Elvis, Beatles, Michael Jackson etc?


      I don't think so....

      Elvis will never be replaced as the king of R&R, just like
      George Jones will never be replaced as the king of country music.
