    I feel what Elvis taught was to feel the music.Both sexually and musically.
    He really didn't really have an influence as much as MJ or Fred Astaire did.

    But mostly I think what Elvis did came from how the music moved him deep inside.

    Read in 'Elvis and Gladys' I think, she was a bit of a 'go-er' was Gladys.

    Not that I'm knocking Michael Jacksons' stage performance at all. But, it's ALL about the stage setup, the WOW!! factor.

    Elvis, was 1 Man on stage singing, with no big production, glitzy, firework etc....display. In know he'd got musicians behind him, but still a different stage set-up than what they put on today.

    My friend saw a clip of TTWII at an event a few months ago, and she said it looked dated!!! Could have flattened her!!!!
