I get your point . That's raw and bare , which I personnally find appealing but I totally understand that some people don't .


I have to say that a lot of people who claims themselves belongin' to " Straight to the point-Rock'n'roll " claim that you HAVE to listen to some blues icons to really enjoy and understand what Rock'n'roll truly comes from . Like it's an unescapable thing , a required "knowledge" .
I question that sometimes .
Off course it "adds" something to acknowledge the way these Blues icons influenced following bands in the history of music , to measure the impact in a certain way . That's for sure .
I read an interview of Marianne Faithfull who said that the young generation of kids ( musicians , music lovers ) don't really listen to Blues artists , most of the time "not at all" . Said how much it's sad and stuff ...
I'm going off-board , ahem !
Anyway ... Just thinkin' to myself I guess .

interesting thoughts. but i must admit i've never really been into this "you MUST listen to blues music in order to understand rock n roll." shouldn't we all listen to Bach to understand music at all ? well, many people don't.
blues music doesn't really get to me, it kinda bores me, actually. i feel like these musicians have been singing about the same themes for a hundred years and i feel like saying "ok, we get it now, you can stop".
and the 12-measure structure, even though it evolved a lot since robert johnson, well, it bores me too, i hear it too much, this structured loop.
but sometimes, once in a while, i listen to blues artists. just not too often.

Sometimes I really like the rawness of "old-school" blues. Sometimes I don't.

That was a very constructive comment.
