People aren't narrow minded just because they don't agree with the masses. Not one single person here has proven anything to me to change my opinion on the matter. Who are the artists who were influenced by him.

I don't argue the influence the Beatles or Stones had on rock, the influence the sex pistols had on punk, that Nirvana and Pearl Jam had on alternative or that Jackson 5 had on people like New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys, that Robert Johnson has on the blues, but I can't think of a specific genre that's widely influenced by Elvis.

He took influence from others and was a great Entertainer, but it was other peoples music, other peoples styles that were already there. To say there would be no rock without Elvis is bullshit because there was rock before him. Bill Hayley and the Comets, Bo Diddly, Howlin Wolf, the list goes on an on. Rock was coming whether Elvis was there or not, he just took off and ran with it.
