"And there's Jimmy Page, the biggest thief of American Blues music"
I guess that Jimmy Page played American blues, as did the Stones, the Yardbirds and quite few other British artists. Of course, at the time, their was widespread racism in America and the blues was deemed to be "blacks only" music. It took the Brits to see the value of the blues and sell it back to the Yanks! I mea, who'd heard of Jimi Hendrix before Chas Chandler brought him over here?
