marcelloblues Songs that have become another's 'own' (40) RE: Songs that have become another's 'own' 06 Dec 99

How many songs performed very well by great artists and groups (such as led zeppelin) where "given" from the audience to this or that.... Easy listeners would attribute a column of our history such THE HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN to the great performers they get in contact with, but this doesn't matter, for me. I find very unfair the behaviour of great, really great artists, who "stole" the music or the lyrics or both, not even for money, I really don't know why... A cover is somehow a tribute, if you spend a few words about the author, tellin' the love'n'respect you feel you wanna give him. Cheers
