    Howard Allan Stern seems to think so. What is that?

    no

    1:Elvis was a big fan of soul music and gospel music and that what he listened to when he was alive. which means he was not a racist.

    2. robin is jealous because she will never be popular as Elvis.

    I'm not 100% on this, but I think the blues are considered public domain, so you can't really steal it.

    Howard saying that Elvis stole their music is racist in itself. Spoken like a true Seperationist.

    Elvis gave away money to real charities every Christmas and would buy things for people he did not know and he still had more money then stern and even makes more to this day after his death.

    The same folks they steal everything else from. Their neighbors, unsuspecting white folks and asian grocery stores.

    elvis grew up in a section of town that was known as rag town, the poorest of the poor lived there, including the colored.elvis frequented black churches, clubs and other venues during his formative 5years, moreover, his first single "that's all right momma" was a remake of a colored song

    i think you're confusing Elvis with Pat Boone. Pat Boone perform "covers" of music recorded originally recorded by black artists on labels unknown outside of the black community, and rerecord them on major labels because he is white and could get national exposure as a white artist. His first big hit was his cover of Fats Domino's "Ain't That a Shame". Boone got the hit and the associated big buck, and Fats got nuthin. Little Richard used to joke that Boone made him a millionaire by covering "Tutti Frutti" and "Long Tall Sally".

    Boone continued the practice arranging for You Light Up My Life performed originally by Didi Cohn (lipsynced for the movie) / Kasey Cisyk (actual singer in the movie) for his daughter Debbie Boone to record who was awarded the Grammy.

    the white cover of a colored artist was common practice, including the publishing rights
