Thread Name: Jimmy Page- Plagiarist of the Blues?
Subject: RE: Jimmy Page- Plagiarist of the Blues?
Blues plagiarist is nearly an oxymoron.
Page can't be all that bad, he just got some award in Rio for humanitarian work of some sort. Remember, when much of the rip-offs happened, these guys were young, naive, drugged, full of themselves, and not capable of great business and ethical decisions. Not living in the real world didn't help them, but even Keith Richards managed to acknowledge his sources.
I wonder what they'd do if they could do it all again?
