^ No, Rumours is post-Peter Green. Check out the album Then Play On for a good intro to Peter's work with Fleetwood Mac.

They started the blues revival before SRV.

Exactley, which makes me wonder why everybody talks so much about Stevie, but so little about Jimmie.

Have you ever seen that video of Jimmie Vaughan playing Texas Flood on the SRV dedication DVD? Thats one of the first times Ive really seen Jimmie play. You can def. tell that Jimmie was influenced by Albert Collins.

Beck, Bogert, and Appice is an amazing, albeit shortlived, band. Should've gone on longer.

And noone says Led Zeppelin ( I mean I and II). "How Many More Times", "Bring It on Home", and "The Lemon Song" are great blues-rock tunes.

Yes, Beck Bogert Appice were damned good. As for Led Zeppelin, the were criminals. I can't understand any blues fan liking them. It's disloyal to blues musicians to listen to the guys that ripped them off. The songs you just named there were stolen from Howlin' Wolf and Willie Dixon.

I totally understand where you are coming from with Led Zeppelin. But I have to give respect for them introducing me to the blues. I never would be where I am as a musician, a music fan, or a person in general without Zeppelin. I do understand that they did steal the music, and I do think that it wasn't a good idea. But they still are my favorite band, and I owe them a lifelong debt for opening up an entire new genre of music to me.

YES John mayall and the bluesbreakers with eric clapton is an amazing album
#25
Hmm, with the Led Zeppelin point - while they are obviously not pure blues, very little music is. Being a blues fan doesn't mean you can't be a fan of other music no?

Blues is the father of nonclassical Western music - its influence is everywhere.

^^^^ What exactly is the deal with this Led Zep thing? I presume they were a little more subtle than playing someone else's song and giving themselves writing credits...
How may The National D help you waste your time?
