Rather than Elvis Presley, it was his first producer Sam Phillips of Sun Records of Memphis who has been credited with creating rock 'n' roll.

While that may be an exaggeration, it would only be a slight one. Phillip's role in the discovery and development of the founding artists of that and other genre's is incalculable. In addition to Elvis Presley, there was Jerry Lee Lewis, Howlin' Wolf, Ike Turner, Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash.
