    I think any music if you listen to it long enough it catches on even if they unknown artists, I do have reservations about rap though.

    Sean, RnB, that depends on what you define it as. The music that inspired the birth of Rock and Roll and produced bands like the Stones and Yardbirds in the 60s is fantastic. Quite how the music labelled RnB now is classified as such is beyond me.

    Blaze, as for rap, that’s just music with a silent C…….Pagan

    I’m open to various types of music – have a small library of 90s Soul and Hip-Hop.

    These days is just unrelatable – I must finally be growing old hahaha 😀

    At work some of us older boys just use our social media group to play and share videos and most of the stuff is from the 80s and 90s.

    Rap is about talking as fast as you can with non musical backing, For me, as far away from what music is as it will ever be

    If you don’t know the blues, there’s no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock’n’roll or any other form of popular music,” says Keith Richards. Blues pioneers such as Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Big Bill Broonzy and Robert Johnson had a huge impact on the young Rolling Stones, influencing Richards’ guitar licks and Mick Jagger’s vocals and songwriting.

    The famous story of how the group got their name dates to 1962, when guitarist Brian Jones rang the Jazz News publication to place an advert for their first gig. When asked what the band’s name was, his eyes went straight to the first song on a Muddy Waters album lying on the floor: ‘Rollin’ Stone’.

    During their own celebrated career, The Rolling Stones have put their own stamp on many of the iconic songs that influenced them. Here’s our guide to some of their most memorable blues covers, revealing the most important songs that influenced The Rolling Stones.

    Like many English musicians of his generation, Clapton was primarily interested in American blues, and he was enough of a purist about it to quit the Yardbirds when they drifted from the blues toward experimental pop with their early 1965 hit “For Your Love.” Clapton recommended as his replacement his friend Jimmy Page .

    Growing up I was never a massive fan even though I lived in Twickenham and hung around Richmond where they regularly played at both EEL Pie Island and the Crawdady which is one of my biggest musical regrets as I missed out on the early Stones and Clapton too fortunately I managed to make up for that a bit by catching a number of Stones and Clapton gigs over the years inc the Clapton blues only concert.

    I’m now a big Blues fan and my love of the Blues has developed further since I got into playing the Guitar and much of what I try to play is Blues related.

    Of the new Blues guitarist I’m a massive fan of Joe Bonamassa an American blues rock guitarist, singer and songwriter who amazingly started his career at age 12, when he opened for B.B. King. How good would you have to be at aged 12 to do that!😊

    Massive fan of BB King too for more than half a century, B.B. King – has defined the blues for a worldwide audience. Since he started recording in the 1940s, he has released over fifty albums, many of them classics. Blues is Blues and most popular music emanates from it and the Blues is a music genre and musical form which was originated in the Deep South of the United States around the 1860s by African-Americans from roots in African musical traditions.

    Pagan, the Blues originated from the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Big Bill Broonzy and Robert Johnson those are the exponents of the Blues that inspired the likes of Clapton and Richards.

    Anything called R and B now is a million miles away from those early exponents of the Blues as well as Clapton and Richards.

    Just googling the current top R and B acts tells us that.

    The only thing I can see that leads us to where we are now is Janis Joplin, Piece of My Heart has been covered by some of today’s so-called RnB singers….Pagan

    I remember when I was a little kid but already interested in music how the sudden deaths in such a short time of Janus Joplin, Jimmy Morrison and Jimmy Hendrix really saddened so many of us.

    9, the blues originated from the Deep South of America way before Howlin Wolf etc. were born. Howlin Wolf and his ilk were there when recording became affordable, and the British bands were influenced by those recordings that managed to cross the Atlantic. The Americans were ahead of the curve to us and the blues over there with the help of Chuck Berry, Little Richard morphed into Rock and Roll….Pagan

    “the Blues is a music genre and musical form which was originated in the Deep South of the United States around the 1860s by African-Americans from roots in African musical traditions.”

    That’s what I said in my earlier post Pagan see above. 😊

    Obviously the likes of Robert Johnson came along later but he was someone who considerably influenced Clapton etc.

    Born on May 8, 1911, and dead just 27 years later on August 16, 1938, the 29 songs that Robert Johnson recorded over two sessions in Texas during 1936-37 stand as the blues’ very own Rosetta Stone.

    It’s impossible to overstate their influence on a broader level. Johnson’s compositions became rock standards, covered by Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, the White Stripes and just about anybody who’s owed a debt to black American blues.

    A master technician with an extraordinary touch, whose guitar style was also conversant with country and ragtime jazz, Johnson had a haunting delivery that Clapton once called “the most powerful cry that I think you can find in the human voice”. I Believe I’ll Dust My Broom, Sweet Home Chicago, Terraplane Blues, Love In Vain, Hellhound On My Trail and Traveling Riverside Blues are just a few of the essentials included on the classic collection, The Complete Recordings.

    “It doesn’t matter that The Complete Recordings sounds old and scratchy. That just adds to the ambience,” says bluesman Walter Trout. “It takes you right back to the day when he sat in that room, in the sweltering heat, with all the windows closed, so they couldn’t hear the traffic out on the street.”
