113. Nah, he had some legitimate pop hits
and sang a lot of them very nicely (most were somewhat bland, to put it mildly, but they had their place), but he should never have touched real rock 'n' roll. I'd like to be charitable, in the absence of actually knowing much about his career, and say that perhaps his producers and label coerced him into desecrating "Tutti Frutti" (not that it's exactly a work of art, but it was exuberant early rock 'n' roll), but he's since proven over and over again that he is essentially a doofus, and not just politically.
