You would think that RCA could have hired some decent talent to run the Nashville Studios. Instead they got Chet Adkins and Bill Porter. What a pair of jokers.

You might like to read this interview with Bill Porter, chief engineering hack in charge back in those days.

Those guys just ruined Elvis's career.

Regardless, "studio hacks" is probably unfair. Most of them were probably only trying to make a living. "Corporate hacks" is probably more correct.

What happened to Elvis is the rule in popular music, whereas Neil is the exception.

Look what happened to Devo.

Exactly how somebody can go from artist to completely art-less is beyond me.

Not that Neil is without fault

OMG, that was really horrible. Thank you!

Devo was fun in the begining, but the gimmick got tired pretty fast.

At least Neil Young churned out a few good ones over a long range of years. Gotta give him that. I like a lot of his stuff.

Poor Elvis, all he ever wanted to be was a crooner. Ended up as the "King of Rock & Roll".

by who's proclamation? Don't mind elvis - but I think to proclaim him that might come from the urge in the US to have someone with an aristocratic sheen in this not so egalitarian society.

Blixa Bargeld of Einstürzende Neubauten is one of the great crooners of our generation.
