    I agree, but they were notorious for not doing that. It's disappointing for me, I've always liked their sound, but I now tend to think of them more as re-mixers like Girl Talk.

    To get some perspective, almost everybody was playing each other's music back then. I think there was more of an idea that popular music was free to interpret. It's a bit hard to stick with that when you have made millions of dollars off of other people's riffs and songs and are stingy with your own song rights.

    I regrettably don't know enough about the blues to know who specifically they copied them, but if you listen to Robert Johnson (as one example), and concentrate on the guitar, and ignore the electric/vs acoustic distinction, you can definitely hear how they were influenced by the blues.

    They weren't so much influenced by the blues, they played the blues, heavy and British. Not just the blues, though, check out that song I posted in my original link. That's a traditional English folk song arranged and played by Burt Jansch before LZ.

    On June 14 1937, the US House of Representatives passed the so-called Marihuana Tax Act, effectively making possession of cannabis illegal throughout the US.

    The River Thames fermented and stunk up the city of London from all the crap and garbage dumped into it.

    The Great Stink

    For centuries, England’s most famous river played the role of dumping ground for all of London’s various wastes—human, animal, and industrial. As the population of London grew from a tiny Roman fort into a large, metropolitan city, the amount of waste it produced expanded exponentially.
    It's important to thumbs down all your favorite Youtube videos. You don't want these artists to get big heads and start producing subpar material.

    Chinese is our Christmas Eve meal every year. It's one of my favorite Christmas traditions.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
