Was an amateur musically compared Little Richard. AND Gene Vincent was a better singer. THe public wasn't entirely wrong about Elvis, but just like the Raptor f 22, there was something better. It seems like if anything can catch a wave, the public always jumps on it. Elvis was an exception, but most times the public just doesn't get ANYTHING. You should have seen some of the lack of acceptance of a real deal; THe Beatles. Most people were into bubble gum whimp top 40 and there was no place in their head for long hairs from England. Thank God common sense prevailed.
