Of course he's a central figure in rock 'n' roll. If not him, then who?!

If we're talking rock 'n' roll music -- the '50s variety -- then we're talking Elvis, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard.

If it's rock music in general that we're discussing, Buddy is certainly widely considered an innovator and massively influential figure. Of those listed above, only Elvis would be considered more influential. Chuck Berry is probably on the same level as Buddy. Combine their two sounds and energies with what Elvis brought to the table and you get a lot of what happened in the '60s.
