Elvis is #1 because of his ex-wife's marketing of all things Elvis after he met his maker.

Other than that, put him in the same category as Michael Jackson, who also had a great career but screwed it up by his own actions, as Elvis did.

PRISCILLA COULD NOT HAVE SOLD THINGS PEOPLE DID NOT WANT TO BUY...HELLO! ELVIS IS AS POPULAR AS EVER TO PEOPLE OF ALL AGES & NATIONALITIES. SALES ARE HIGH BECAUSE DEMAND FOR ELVIS IS HIGH, BECAUSE FOR THE TIME HE WAS ALIVE, HE WAS A POWERHOUSE ENTERTAINER! HIS MUSIC, LIKE "LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION", HAS BEEN REMIXED AND IS POPULAR TO WHOLE NEW GENERATION. HAD PRISCILLA BEEN MARRIED TO ANY OTHER MAN, SHE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HAVE MARKETED ANYTHING. ELVIS WILL NOT EVER LOSE HIS APPEAL. ELVIS FOREVER!

Drugs or not, my boy still defines "entertainment". He"s the gold standard for the industry.

Elvis is and will always be the king...can you imagine what he would be worth if he was alive? There will never be another singer like this beautiful, compassionate man.
