Thank you, thank you very much.

Before Elvis, there was nothing.

--John Lennon

He helped to kill off the influence of me and my contemporaries, but I respect him for that. Because music always has to progress, and no one could have opened the door to the future like he did.

-- Bing Crosby

When I first heard Elvis' voice, I just knew I wasn't going to work for anybody, and nobody was going to be my boss. He is the deity supreme of rock and roll religion as it exists in today's form. Hearing him for the first time was like busting out of jail.
I thank God for Elvis Presley.

--Bob Dylan

That's my idol, Elvis Presley. If you went to my house, you'd see pictures all over of Elvis. He's just the greatest entertainer that ever lived. And I think it's because he had such presence. When Elvis walked into the room, Elvis Presley was in the fucking room.

-- Eddie Murphy

This boy had everything. He had the looks, the moves,
the manager and the talent. And he didn't look like Mr. Ed
like a lot of the rest of us did.

--Carl Perkins

He was the firstest with the mostest.

--Roy Orbison
