Howlin’ Wolf: When interviewed in 1966, Howlin’ Wolf commented on the white blues singers. He liked Paul Butterfield, he said, also "that other boy - What's his name? Somewhere out in California, that "Hound Dog Number". He was talking about Elvis Presley. But surely Elvis couldn't be considered strictly a blues singer, somebody pointed out. Maybe not, conceded Wolf in the great hoarse growl of his, but "he started from the blues. If he stopped, he stopped. It's nothing to laugh at. He made his pull from the blues."

Little Richard: "He was an integrator, Elvis was a blessing. They wouldn't let black music through. He opened the door for black music."

Jimi Hendrix, who saw Elvis live in 1957, aknowledge him "As a fine blues singer."

Robert Plant: [...] If you can hear Elvis singing ' Love Me', then that's a great introduction to the blues."

Robert Plant (during a concert in 2007): "[...] Ok, who was the King of the Blues? Muddy Waters? Maybe even Elvis Presley. I think he had so much contact, when he was a kid at school, he was listening to Memphis radio, in the early Fifties [...]"

Chris Bailey (The Saints) on "That's all Right": "My ultimate favourite. Whatever you say about Elvis, he very much liked black blues music. His music was black before he went off to Hollywood or wherever. The pureness of sound all these years later... I put that on and go, 'Why am I even trying? I can never better this.' He does three Arthur Crudup songs and they're all works of art."

Trevor Cajiao: "Don't let anyone tell you the blues is strictly for the black man. The passion and feel in El's version of 'One Night' transcends all musical boundaries. Apart from, maybe, Duane Eddy's 'Peter Gunn'', has there ever been a dirtier sounding record?"

Alan McGee: "Elvis had the blues. He was a black guy with white skin."
