Subject: RE: Who's THE most over-rated 'legend'?
I think most modern music fans - raised in the "rock era" - would relate to Robert Johnson's - and Leadbelly's - music more than Blind Blake's is because their music ( i.e. Johnson's and Leadbelly's ) is more intense and, indeed, was a lot more of a inspiration for modern rock musicians.
