"He is the genuine article, perhaps a throwback to the blues men of yore who learned their licks at the knee of legendary patriarch like Charlie Patton. And having done so, serves as one of the last links to the days when cotton was king on the Mississippi Delta." - Larry Benicewicz, Music Monthly.

“Blues Artist Memphis Gold is on the Cover of Oldest Blues Magazine in the World, the Jefferson Blues Magazine (Sweden) Issue #147 January 2006 “My father played piano and Wilkins and I played guitar, just the three of us together. Of all my family today,I’m the only one who plays the blues. My brothers and sisters are of the church. When we meet, they ask if I still play the "devil's music". I see it as a job, and I write my songs as stories. I have been married several times and my songs contain a lot of my own experiences.” ”
