GUEST,Tunesmith You've Got to be Joking! - greatest blues singers (239* d) RE: You've Got to be Joking! - greatest blues singers 09 Oct 18


Well, we're all agreed then, Billy was expressing himself, like so many Brits, in an accent that was far removed from his own.
But, this is not true of all (?) the great American singers.
Again, when you listen to Johnny Cash you are indeed hearing Johnny Cash.
But, when you hear Elton John you are hearing a voice " borrowed" from Jose Feliciano AND Jose had, himself, based his voice on American soul signings ( back in the 60s Jose spoke with a distinct Pueto Rican accent.)
This is the reason why I cam't accept many Uk singers as the Real Deal".
