• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Politics is a disease that spreads & destroys everything it touches.
Put the politics in the trash & turn up the music.
Only Hendrix has done more for music the last 100 years than EC and nobody can top that / full stop.
Worlds only 3 time RRHOF inductee.
yes, but Jimi Hendrix didn't have Jack Bruce as his bass player...

Did Robert Johnson sue Elmore James?

What if he had lived longer?

Plenty examples of old Blues Plagiarism.

Yes i agree Calhoun Tubbs should get his.
To be fair the Mississippi Delta Blues Artists and the Chitlin circuit didn't really get the recognition they did until the British Invasion in the 1960's melding them all together with the Brits and those guys got paid well to go England and new record deals ect.
Those Blues Artists never got American audience recognition up until that point for whatever reasons.
Are all things equal in the music industry, hardly but neither is life.
As for now can't really say who's playing originated from what because music artists are constantly changing & reinventing themselves.
Im not a Bonamassa fanboy per say but i do respect him as a gearhead and guitar player.
I saw him on WSM/Grand Ole Opry couple nights ago playing thru a Dumble Overdrive Special combo [ala HAD RIP] the the guy totally destroyed.
I watch that channal all the time and the regular hired guns and backup singers on stage were really into it more than normal with JB.

6 strings, check: 22 frets, check: I guess some of us might hit the same notes at one time
or another. Please don't sue me, my CD's self destruct willingly.

I once saw no more than 4(!) bootleg copies of Rainbow Rising on Etsy recently. Bootlegs are an industry standard, I guess.
