You would think the guy who developed the Polio vaccine might be a little higher.

how bout Elvis ahead of the beatles? I know Elvis came first, but Beatles were of a different vein, and it seems to me more popular(if not at their respective peaks, their popularity seems to have carried better).

I also tend to think Edison could be a little higher. That guy was in on everything. Davinci too. Granted they are up there.

It's a cool list though.

I don't think Altair and Ezio are getting their due, or even Desmond.

Agree on the Beatles should be higher than Elvis. I actually have a hard time finding people that arent in their 60's nowadays who even like Elvis..but not often find somebody willing to admit they don't like the Beatles, even if they don't regularly listen to them.

I like The Beatles and Elvis but the Beatles influence and popularity has aged much better than Elvis. Maybe Elvis gets higher because he was the first one to be a larger than life rock/pop star figure and performance artist.
