One of These Things is Not Like the Other…

Looking up Sunfest and found this blurb about Kenny Rogers:

“Having recorded more than 65 albums, which have sold over 120 million records worldwide during his 52 years in show business, Kenny Rogers is an American icon in the same league as The Beatles, Elton John and Elvis Presley.”

Got a good laugh out of that one!  First, this is the first and last time we’ll ever seen Kenny Rogers grouped in the same company as the Beatles and Elvis.  I mean, come on…  Second, of the three “American icons” listed, only one of them is American!

Still laughing….
