Differences between Irish, British, Polish, American and other nations culture, tradition, music - loose talk

I have to agree with The Yanks here.All the great British artists and bands of the sixties and seventies were influenced by American music,mainly The Blues and Rock'n'Roll.

The Blues is the granddaddy of nearly all popular music of the last 65 years.
And it is without question American.

All your music came from rock and roll which came from Blues, all invented in the USA.

By the descendants of African slaves, not by 'Americans' so don't be too cocky about it :)

Somebody mentioned Elvis and my God, yes, he is the BUSINESS!! Love him. But - it's Black music. Without dem black folks, it'd be wall to wall banjos in the USA and weird imitations of Irish and Scots folk music. Here's the King showing us how it's done, but the song was written by Jimmy Reed, and he was as black as your boot, God Bless him.

What ? You dont like either American or British music ? INXS and ACDC it is then :)

because Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll originated in the U.S.

Ah... Robert Johnson and Big bill Bronzy and Scott Joplin and for the syncopation - the origins of honky tonk:)

Fleetwood Mac?

Oh Yes. Peter Green could reduce me to tears. Eric Clapton never had that. Now, Cream, that was a different thing - but the white man blues - that's Peter Green (and Danny Kirwan - two for the price of one! Them being in the same band and all)

Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, KoKo Taylor, Son Seals, I seen all these cats many times in Chicago before they passed away.

One of my favorites and is still jamming at 82 years old is Buddy Guy! He still tours around Europe, so go see him!! lol

Who the best guitarist??? ITs SRV, of course!!! I seen him a few times, too bad he died:(

youtu.be/grBmQwLSlDw

Jimi???

youtu.be/K38uTI0EHCI

I like Gary Mooore, former Thin Lizzy guitarist turned Bluesman..RIP

youtu.be/4O_YMLDvvnw

The best new Blues guitarist is Joe Bonamassa from Jersey, but hes always in England.

youtu.be/69EcnxJmnd4

From what Ive heard the Blues is still kicking in the UK, but its not as popular here anymore and most of the clubs in Chicago have closed down:(:(

ACDC it is then

The suck! Every song is written in either the Key of E or A, it all sounds the same to me, repetitious screeching. lol

We must be of similar age as I agree with all you said.
Buddy Guy is just amazing..........Hendrix and SRV are right up there amongst the greatest ever.
Gary Moore had it( from Atch's neck of the woods of course!)
I loved early Santana but he can get a bit repetitive.....
Of the newer guys,yeah Bonamassa is great and I love Warren Haynes too.
Though not really a Blues guitarist I think Zakk Wylde is incredible too.
Agree on AC/DC too,boring,repetitious stuff.........

Son Seals

No ****? Now I am seriously impressed......
"I prefer those ladies down south
dem with some meat on their bones..."

What a player he was!

I will only remind you people that pan Xi from China nicely said how is Britain insignificant country. So, it is so for China and for USA. You so what Queen grany got from venerable Trump? Those are global signals.

Conclusion: take from that cow as much as you can, while you can and then run from cow as fast as you can.

Peter Green.

If you like Peter Green, listen to him on this album by Pete Bardens:

Thank you very much TheOther. Never heard this before. Sweet!!

Yes,very nice stuff...he later on formed the band Camel,I saw them a couple of times and they were very good too.
But Peter Green was really good....until the drugs came along....

Im surprised someone caught that one:)

Then you must have heard of Junior Wells, Luther Allison and Mighty Joe Young as well. Man, I used to see these guys playing every weekend either in a bar or festival in or around Chicago. Im going back to the 1980-90`s of course. There all dead except Buddy Guy now.

I forgot to mention Roy Buchanan, hes the worlds most famous unknown guitarist!

youtu.be/DDOIL5OqvYs

I loved early Santana but he can get a bit repetitive...

I agree, as much as I love Santana. The last 2 times I seen him, he totally stopped the show to start preaching religion and the very last time he brought his son "a rapper"

It was horrible!

Shut up and play your Guitar! Im paying good money!! LOL

Though not really a Blues guitarist I think Zakk Wylde is incredible too

I seen him for the first time at the Copernicus Center in Chicago. The show was called generation Axe , with Uwngie Malmsteen, Stevie Vai and Nunu Bettencort, it was awesome!

youtu.be/Q1SE2aMaea4

This was the show, but not my video.

I heard Robin Trower was just there and I missed him....... The Copernicus Center Rocks!

@ TheOther

Im listening to it right now, pretty good! Im thinking about lighting up a doobie next:)

This post is meant as a "Peace post" between Yanks and Brits

I think we have more in common than we realize sometimes?

How could I forget Robin Trower???

He has a new album out, too bad I missed that show.

Joker,enjoy your smoke mate!

I should say Vape:) What a cool invention, I wish they had this back in the 80`s LOL

Im still listening to that Peter Green album from TO, its sounds really good!

Ok Theother how about Michael Bloomfield?

Hippie!!

Glad you enjoyed Pete Bardens, guys. That album was one of my favorites for a very long time. But there are/ were so many other brilliant guitarists out there.

Neil Young
Peter Frampton, Steve Marriott / Humble Pie
Frank Marino / Mahogany Rush
Alvin Lee / Ten Years After
Lesley West / Mountain
Jan Akkermann / Focus / Brainbox

Just to name a few.

how about Michael Bloomfield

Love the Butterfield Blues Band.

If you like blues rock, try this one:

Seems that way......besides our various Polish connections some of us share similar musical tastes......maybe we should concentrate less on this Aussie/Brit/Yank thing and more on what we have in common.

Neil

Yeah,still love all those guys too and The Butterfield Blues Band.I also love a live album Mike Bloomfield did with Al Kooper called "The Supersession".

How about what we here call "Southern Rock"?Allman Bros,Lynyrd Skynyrd,The Outlaws,38 Special,Molly Hatchet,Blackfoot etc?

What about Rory Gallagher (from Cork).

How anybody could talk about the Blues or guitarists and not mention Rory..........

Yeah,him too! And I'm old enough to remember Taste!
Atch 17 | 2,915
26 Sep 2018 #110
You can never say 'him too' about Rory - never, never, never. It's Rory and then the rest, not the other way round. Except for Jimmy. The two are pretty much equal but each unique at the same time. I wouldn't put Clapton now in the same league at all, lacks the fire - as a musician Rory was an inferno and as a person it was still present, in a warmth and goodness that just oozed out of the man.

If I'm honest,I prefered Gary Moore,especially when he was with my all time favourite Irish band Thin Lizzy.
I saw them live more than any other band and Phil Lynott was someting else!!

The only thing I ever liked from Lizzy was Whiskey in the Jar. But everyone loved Phil even if they weren't into the music. He was a great Dublin character. We used to see him a lot around Dublin and he was absolutely wired, full of energy. He acknowledged everyone who said hello to him. He couldn't walk a hundred metres down any street without people calling out to him or stopping him to talk and he really seemed to thrive on it. He always had time to stop and have a word with fans and if he genuinely didn't have time, or wasn't in the mood he'd just give a big smile and say 'Jaysus, sorry man, I can't stop, catch ya again later, right?' They still have a concert in his memory every year, A Vibe for Philo.

Alvin Lee / Ten Years After

Has to be one of my favorite bands for my high schools days. A space in time, what an album!

youtu.be/VPPzMZ2OSys

Ya`ll spoken here...

HeeHaw!

How anybody could talk about the Blues or guitarists and not mention Rory.......

Yes, Indeed Ms. Atch

I only discovered Rory a few years ago and hes fantastic, No doubt:)

I really like Thin Lizzy as well, except it irks me when radio stations in the US only play two songs over and over. Jailbreak and Boys are back in town, they over kill it like stairway to heaven. They have much better songs like, The Rocker, Chinatown, Bad Reputation and......

youtu.be/iGjeoCjA0gk

Gary Moore:)

That guy was phenomenal.

They errected a statue to him in Ballyshannon, the tiny town in Co Donegal where he was born.

Thin Lizzy

And there's a statue of Phil Lynott outside the pub in the city centre of Dublin which was his favourite watering hole :) Like I say Phil was a regular sight on the streets of Dublin, always dressed as if he'd just come off stage in eye wateringly tight trousers, leather, studs, spangles! Rory, very different, very self-effacing, just another long haired lad in jeans and check shirt, lovely, lovely person. A fan asked him for an autograph once but Rory didn't have a pen so he rummaged in the pocket of his jeans and produced a plectrum, 'sorry, will that do?' WILL IT!

Lynyrd Skynyrd are too mainstream for my personal taste. I prefer wilder stuff like MC5 or Patti Smith Group. Check this one out: youtube.com/watch?v=oUCBQc1t_gE

My vote goes to Eric Clapton as my all time favorite.
He does hold some major honors.
Put Clapton on back in the day and bong some opiated hashish fresh back from Nam.
Those were the days my friends that I thought would never end.

Kavanaugh is a true American hero
