    Everybody made good comments and observations on this topic.Another thing about Elvis' staying power is the fact he truly has become more than just an icon.Elvis' legacy is wrapped up in our culture.It's like he's always been with us forever.I think even new fans feel that way.He was the first global superstar.Nobody can beat or top that.You always remember youre first right?Elvis just keeps going and going.He was the total package.A marketing dream and deservedly so.Nobody can compare with Elvis when it's all said and done.

    Elvis was attacked back in the 50s and also in 70s (for drugs and stuff), but he went over all that and became part of the US essence. Michael went tru a smilar situation and I'm sure his fans will keep him. So he will turn eventually into something similar to Elvis.
    Both made huge developments in music and pop culture. Different generations, different moments.

    Records are just "records" what's most important is Michael's and Elvis' legacy to their fans.
    Let the stars fade and fall, and I won't care at all, as long as I have you.

    I think Joe Jackson is money hungry and I can see him squeezing every last dollar out of any situation which will make money.
    Its my understanding that MJ had hundreds of unreleased songs in the can-which could be the difference in who makes the most each year.
    But we will see how loyal and long lasting the fans of MJ are in the next 10 years.
    I can't see any fans being more loyal than Elvis' fans are!

    London, Aug 16 (PTI) Pop icon Michael Jackson is set to break rock and roll legend Elvis Presley record of beyond the grace earnings.

    The executors of Jackson's will John Branca and John McClain say that cash has flooded in from a film deal and merchandising contracts, Mirror online reported.

    Jackson has already earned 60 million pounds in the 50 days since his death and another 60 million pounds is expected by the end of the year putting Jackson on course to beat Presley's record of earning after death.

    The King of Pop's longtime lawyer Branca, said, "Clearly that's a new record for estates that likely will not be broken."

    Branca and McClain, a music executive and Jackson family friend, were named in the star's will as co-executors of his estate.

    The pair have put together a series of deals for merchandise such as commemorative coins, school supplies and a 90 pounds coffee-table book.

    I see where you're going with this one, Cake.

    Why not Jacko's face?

    Who cares Brian if MJ did surpass him (which he won't). If your an Elvis fan, stuff like that wouldn't bother you a-tall even if he did surpass Elvis...

    Thanks for your opinion

    However if you read what I said carefully in my original post I said it didn't matter to me if MJ surpasses Elvis.
    There are a lot more important accolades.
    I was asking if anyone thought it was a possibilty that MJ would surpass Elvis permanently and for people's thoughts, feelings, and opinions on the subject.
    To some fans it is important to them that Elvis maintain this record and that's okay.

    Oh okay I read you loud and clear.

    Wouldn't mater at all to me whether he does or doesn't surpass E.
