This past week was the anniversary of his death. I myself am 54 yo and remember his music well....I have some favorites. His style was undoubtedly unique at the time and his fan base was vast. I must say however that going with "imitation is the greatest form of flattery" I can't recall anyone trying to copy his style in the 60's and 70's. We all are aware of the hundreds of Elvis impersonators available around the world now, but I cannot recall any artist attempting to copy his style back then. If anyone can post someone that was semi successful that would be appreciated. I am wondering if it was out of respect or that his "style" was considered done. I feel he did change the face of rock and roll but can't remember anyone else considered a copy...
