I'm mainly refering to how Page is called a "thief" even though many of the musicians he aledgedly stole from do the exact same thing.

I just think that elitist blues fans and antiquity whores have their way with double standards.

I see where you are coming from.

To call page a thief is silly since he added so much to music. He practically invented the guitar army sound and got some of the best drum sounds of all time. Zeppelin stretched what was permitted in pop music.

Cool

Being only 18 i know im light years behind alot of people when it comes to music. But i am one of the few in highschool who even APPRICIATE blues...i love it..while everyone else is metal, punk, and rap..i am blues. Recently i joined a band with a KICK ASS guitar player...well we won a battle of the bands beating out 15 other bands..and when being interviewed afterwards, our guitar player said, go listen to SRV and you'll see why the judges picked us to win. We play all originals, but our style has a very bluesy feel, and i think that was releif for the judges.. As for SRV..he's my favorite..every note makes me feel something different. The sky is crying, Texas Flood, Life by the drop, Couldn't stand the weather, Pride and Joy, Crossfire, its all good!! every song of his i like..As far as innovation..to me each of his songs are a LITTLE different from the other..thats innovative enough..I wish he wouldn't have died...If he hadn't it could very well be "Jimmi Hendrix who?"

Nice to see the youngans so keen on the blues.
I think you do underestimate the importance of Hendrix.
Remember that he did what he did before 1970.
What Hendrix did on the guitar nobody had ever done before. It was a revolution.
He stands alone as the greatest influence in rock guitar ever.

I saw an interview with Eric Clapton and he said he almost gave up the guitar after seeing SRV play,he said"what's the point knowing there is someone like SRV out there"True story.

As much as I love SRV and as great of a talent as he is, not a great song writer or particularly interesting artist. Sort of leaves a bland taste in your mouth so to speak.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

I agree although I don't love his work either. His version of 'Little Wing' however is absolutely phenomenal.

Little Wing done just right is one of the best songs ever for guitar.

S.R.V Rules man, his solos are so passionate and so interesting, my favorite songs of his are Pride And Joy and Texas Flood.
