They were so much deeper into blues playing. In fact, I have never really thought of AC/DC as blues.
In the 70's a band like The Raspberries, were considered Power Pop, I would never consider Agnus Young to be Power Pop, the thought never crossed my mind. I never said AC/DC were strictly a "Blues" band, I consider AC/DC Hard Rock but during the 70's Hard Rock borrowed heavily from the Blues genre. The reason I brought up Agnus Young was because he used I IV V chord progressions and the pentatonic blues scale, but Agnus never paid homage to Blues (not like Winter & Vaughn), so imo Agnus Young was a generic Blues-Rock guitarist, not SRV. My perspective comes from playing the guitar, I guess those who don't would see things differently.

I was trying to explain imo that Stevie Ray Vaughn is more then just a generic blues rocker.

I've always harbored a similar opinion of SRV. When I told my dad how I felt, he looked at me like I had just come out of the closet on Christmas. I'm not detracting from the fact that he was a strong blues player, but he was nowhere near as influencial as some of the players of the same genre. His "Little Wing" cover was mediocre at best. Beyond that, the "Double Trouble" stuff seemed to blend that blues foundation with rock 'n' roll, but neither aspect was really phenominal--hence, the "generic" tag. But Winter has stuck primarily with blues music, and I feel like he's been able to find his "voice" much more successfully as a result. Winter, in my opinion, communicates with his audience and with whatever group of musicians he's playing with at the time, on a far superior level.

SRV hands down. Theres no real guidelines on how were judging, so I picked the one who influenced my own playing more.

Johnny Winter is an amazing musician, just like his bro Edgar Winter, but SRV has had a monumental impact on my guitar playing.

I could always see & hear what a big influence Jimi Hendrix was, with SRV. Robert Cray has always been (just one) of my (many) fav. blues artist. I like Eric Clapton, but at the same time, always thought that he is over rated. I could never choose who is the better artist when they have different levels of talent & styles. In my opinion, there is no number one when it comes to the best of the best.

Before SRV gets anointed champ, you gotta have a listen to Johnny Winter Captured Live. This changed my whole attitude towards the albino six stringer. His albums were always spotting because he couldn't write a tune to save his life, but on this live set, he absolutely scorches the stage. He's got a great piercing tone, blinding speed and lays down one of the most assertive attacks ever rendered by a blooze rock man, live. Steve Ray, or Jimi and Eric for that matter, don't have a live album like this. SRV had better studio albums, but after hearing Captured Live, I think JW betters him on stage.

Johnny Winter was there first. He has been ignored by the rock and roll hall of fame. He is not usually on the "celebrity list" for big benefits. Bob Dylan had to request Johnny's presence at his own tribute show because he was originally left out. How could his version of Highway 61 Revisited be left out of any Dylan tribute? (They did stick him in an early slot that was very far from "star time".) It's time to set the record straight. Not to take anything away from Stevie Ray Vaughan, but he was a kid watching Johnny Winter in Texas and absorbing everything. Jimmy Vaughan also had a big influence on SRV. Now that Clapton is sober and paying his dues to all those who influenced him and also showing his respect to his peers, he has finally included Johnny Winter in his Crossroads show,(2007). It's time to recognize Johnny's greatness and elect him into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.
