Your Favourite Bluesmen?

Well it’s a simple question although I doubt it’ll get much response here.

So without further ado:

BB King
Robert Johnson
Howlin’ Wolf
Son House
Stevie Ray Vaughn

Share your favourites.

Yep, Led Zeppelin got famous for ripping off blues artists, covering blues songs without giving them a dime.

Clapton did pay and he also appropriated the Robert Johnson estate which LZ and much to my chagrin, The Stones did not do until they were sued a few years ago. The Stones covered RJ quite a bit, "Love in Vain" and "Stop Breaking Down" just to name a few. Clapton, if I'm not mistaken released an album titled "My Life With Robert Johnson" in which he covered all of his favorite RJ songs.

The White Stripes also did an AMAZING cover of "Stop Breaking Down" and Jack White also appropriated RJ's estate. The funny thing is that he thought he had done the first modern cover of "SBD" until a rock journalist informed him that the Stones had done it for "Exile."

Jack White's response, "Oh, I've never heard that version."



<------ is a Blues dork.

Jack White has never heard "Exile On Main Street!"

Jack, get a fucking bass player.
