Re: Frank Sinatra versus Elvis Presley!

Obviously both are legends. It's tough but how can you deny what the King contributed to rock and roll?

Re: Frank Sinatra versus Elvis Presley!

NO ONE dominated ANY era like ELVIS PRESLEY dominated THE 1950'S. Simple as that, no one is as influential on Rock music as The King of Rock, which is why I voted for Elvis Presley, one of all time immortals. Think of it this way, only Elvis comes close to The Beatles in terms of success. Elvis was so great that he retired for years, came back in 1969, and went right back to dominating the charts again.

I'm a fan of Frank... and I am a fan of Elvis. But for some reason, Frank, prevails.

Re: Frank Sinatra versus Elvis Presley!

It's very difficult to choose for me 'cause both are great music artists! But I think Elvis Presley rocks.

Re: Frank Sinatra versus Elvis Presley!

Both stellar artists but for me - Elvis in his prime was probably the greatest single performer to ever grace a stage.

Frank Sinatra

I use to only like 2 songs by Elvis lol but recently discovered I like a few more. Sinatra though has an amazing voice and really great songs. I think I'm gonna listen to My Way now
