"Someone who I think should get the genius grant,
master of the slide guitar, Roy Rogers!" -Conan O'Brien
"Rogers is both a sensational and a sensitive blues guitarist - certainly among the finest slide guitarists playing today. His wailing slide guitar sound (and churning rhythms, when needed) mark him and his work as of the highest caliber."
- San Francisco Chronicle
"Rogers is an exceptionally articulate slide guitarist, whether he's scorching Robert Johnson's 'Ramblin' Blues' or taking a lovely, lyrical journey... or rockin' it out. One of the rare guitar heroes who values feeling over flash."
- Rolling Stone
