I can't get enough of Muddy Waters.Here is an excellent tribute to Muddy Waters by Paul Rogers of Free and Bad Company, there are loads of famous guest contributors as well including Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and Dave Gilmore.
Yes, of course this the case. And as Led Zeppelin grew older (and, of course, Jimmy Page), Page wrote more original songs. 'Whole Lotta Love' was released a year after Zeppelin formed and a year after he left the Yardbirds. And to be honest, I didn't notice any similarities between the two until I was listening to 'You Need Love'. But the music is completely different to the Willie Dixon song. And, after all, you can't deny Page is a superb guitar player.Of course Page was in the Yarbirds before he formed Zeppelin along with Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton, so it's not really surprising that he brought the blues influence into the band.
Page is a superb guitar player.
I think for Floyd you can add Wright and Barrett to the list, but Roger is a lyricist and he always will be, and Nick is a drummer.Yes he is but Zep were one of those bands where all the musicians were brilliant, a bit like the who and Rush but unlike Status Quo and Pink Floyd. Floyd in my opinion only ever had one outstanding musician (Gilmore) which is why they could carry on when various members departed. Same with Quo, where as Zep, the who and Rush all split up or stopped touring and recording after one or more left or died.
Yes, of course, songs like Money and Shine On Your Crazy Diamond prove that. But he has always been (or, at least since Syd's departure from Pink Floyd) more of a lyricist.He is also an accomplished Bass guitarist but I don't think he is an astounding Bass Guitarist like Jones, Lee or Entwistle
