Here is Marty Lacker's thoughts on the Glee chart stats in America and in response to Elvis Express Radio's "Putting Glee into perspective" article.
"The comparison of Glee and Elvis on Billboard's Hot 100 is ridiculous and it is like comparing apples to oranges.
Elvis is a recording artist,Glee is a TV Show. Technology back then is nothing what it is today where not only can they download the music from the internet, many kids do it directly to their cell phones.
They also don't mention the fact of Elvis' number one records and many of them in the early years were at #1 across the board, pop, Black Music and Country charts. Not to mention that Elvis changed the culture of the world in the 50's as well as being a cultural historical icon.
In another few years,if not sooner, Glee will be forgotten as just another TV show that faded out and was cancelled.
All this hoopla was to get publicity for Billboard and Glee."
