Basically, Elvis' influence was on the record buying public and the radio stations playlists, not so much on the artists themselves?
Although, as a showman, as a performer and as a peer, his influence was far and wide. He may not have wrote much or played much, but his influence on Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and The Everley Brothers, as a contemporary, among many others, who are certainly hugely influential artists in their own rights, was massive.
Without Elvis rock music would undoubtedly not be anything like we know it.
In fact not just rock music. I doubt we'd have James Brown's or Michael Jackson's or Bruce Springsteen's, let alone Mick Jagger's or Robert Plant's, if it wasn't for the huge success of Elvis as a showman... not a writer, singer or guitarist, but simply as a showman.
Like him or not, to say "he didn't write anything so he didn't make an impact" is utter crap.
