There is no doubt in my mind of the class differences between Frank and Elvis. When Elvis died, he cemented himself in our psyche for all eternity as he was in the mid to late 70's (tacky rhinestone jumpsuits and all). When Frank died at 82, he suddenly became "Pal Joey" for all eternity ( classy and care-free 40 year old in tailored suit, trench coat and fedora). When Frank stepped on stage, he represented musical art in its highest form. Elvis, on the other hand, did not. Frank Sinatra is opera or the symphony. Elvis, on the other hand, is Karaoke. Also, let's not forget the most important difference between Elvis and Frank. While Elvis stole his musical style from others in the mid 50's and made it popular, Frank invented his musical genre and forced everyone else (including his own idol-Bing) to adapt to it.
