sandrew Elvis Still King of Rock 'n' Roll

When Americans were asked in a new poll to name the greatest rock 'n' roll star of all time, Elvis Presley was still the king – by a wide margin.

Almost four in 10 named Elvis Presley in the ABC News poll released Wednesday, two days before the 25th anniversary of his death. All others were in the low single digits.

Presley may have had an advantage because the poll was taken at a time when the 25th anniversary of his death is in the news. Still, the public also overwhelmingly preferred him when asked that question in March 1999 and August 1995.

The poll of 1,023 adults was taken Aug. 7-11 and has an error margin of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

The poll also found:

–Jimi Hendrix was at 4 percent; tied at 2 percent were John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton and Michael Jackson.

–Nine in 10 said Presley has had a lasting impact on American culture.

–People were evenly split as to whether they were fans of Elvis Presley or not.

–Four in 10 said he was a good role model, while almost six in 10 said he was not.

–Two-thirds of those from age 55-64 said they are Presley fans, while almost four in 10 of adults age 18-34 said they are fans.
