Was the greatest singer ever...a geek?

geek/
–noun Slang
a computer expert or enthusiast (a term of pride as a self-reference, but often considered offensive when used by outsiders) 


Geeks.

Cool or not?

The
Wall Street Journal reports:

Just a few decades ago, a geek was a carnival freak who bit the heads off of chickens and rats.

Then geek became a catchall word for socially maladjusted individuals who loved Commodore 64 computers more than fresh air.

Now geek is a term of endearment among acolytes of technology, imbued with golden marketing potential. Just how cool is geek? Any dweeb who dares to use the word in the computer business just might hear from Best Buy's lawyers.

The world's largest electronics chain recently threatened online rival Newegg.com with legal action, arguing that its Geek On advertising slogan sounded too similar to Best Buy's cartoonishly nerdy tech support service, Geek Squad.

Newegg responded by posting the cease-and-desist letter on Facebook this month—and self-described geeks everywhere blasted Best Buy for trying to commandeer a common word that has enjoyed a bigger metamorphosis than the ugly duckling.”


To answer the previous question, geek = cool.

Turns out the greatest singer of all-time was a geek.
