“Stokes was my first hero and mentor in the art of the blues, soul and American roots music. He taught me to sing and play the guitar. He taught so many musicians.” ~Scott Sherrard (Guitarist and musical director for the Gregg Allman Band)
"He was no-nonsense, just played the songs, and if you could keep up, he was happy. A lot of people are going to miss Stokes." ~Brian Ritchie (Founder and bassist for the Violent Femmes)
“I’ve been on the road for the last 35 years playing with and listening to the greatest Blues artists in the world. None of whom could eclipse the musical splendor of my mentor and old friend, Stokes.” ~Matthew Skoller (Harmonica, singer-songwriter, Program Director for The Logan Center Bluesfest at the University of Chicago.)
