GUEST,Tunesmith You've Got to be Joking! - greatest blues singers (239* d) RE: You've Got to be Joking! - greatest blues singers 04 Oct 18

Again, we are talking "greatness" here.
When, some idiot claims that Robert bloody Plant is a greater blues singer than Aretha and Robert Johnson and Bobby Bland...and so on EVERYONE on this site shoud be killing themselves laughing!

Again, Robert Plant and Steve Marriott are merely acting out the roles of American blues singers. That's all they can do. Act!

Son House doesn't act out the role of the blues singer. He is the real deal.

To elevate Plant and Marriott in this way is an insult to the great black artists who created the music.

And, yes, white men/women can sing the blues but foregive me if I find UK singers performing in a phoney, pseudo American accents a huge joke.

Indeed, this whole period of UK artists "singing American" will be one day be seen as a weird abberation, and placed in the same box as the blacked-up Al Jolson.
