Subject: RE: Who's THE most over-rated 'legend'?
Well, Robert Johnson was a far more complete guitarist than Son House. Robert could play everything that Son played - but better, and he also had other influences ( Lonnie Johnson, for example) that made him a more varied guitarist. Of course, Son House is also a legend, and - to my ears - the greatest blues singer ever!
