RE: beck the elder (was "here is...")

  Page ripped off Beck? C'mon,all the English guitar heros got most of 
ideas from black bluesman from the US. Clapton usually sounded like 
King but he played an Albert King thing pretty much note for note on 
Brew. Then covered Born under abad sign so Albert could get some 
nd started hireing Freddy to  open ,to try and pay him back.Page sounds 
he heard alot of Earl Hooker.  Zep never really gave credit for lyrics and 
riffs from blues tunes,and they didn't really hire people to open to try 
expose them to audience like other groups did.I
  The english guys  could play and did creative thing sand brought modern 
production values to the blues, but in guitar hero days, guys like Luther 
Allison ,Magic Sam and Buddy Guy could out play all the English cats 
,including Beck  who for my money  wasn't much of a blues player though he 
was good at rave ups,-didn't get interesting until fusion. I like Peter  
Green  the best of th english blues players,but take wy the BB King 
licks,and you still have real feeling ,genuine soul,but not too much
