Did I miss the deadline?

Damn, had it on this afternoon. Listened to the whole album twice.

I then did the following...

I rang the electricity people we use to be put on hold for an hour.

I then rang my doctors to be put on hold for 45 minutes.

Being put on hold twice was far more pleasurable than listening to dear old Bob moaning his way through another album. Musically all over the shop. Blues? Really? Jazz? Throw any old shit at a wall?

I've just realised that I own a Bob Dylan album. From 1966. A greatest hits.

Should have stopped then.

2/10
Quite brilliant.

I'd imagine that a lot of bands started out doing covers, then some bright spark amongst them writes a song and here we go.
Yes lots of bands started off playing blues, it was quite an easy genre to play ..mainly three chords in every song.
Even Pink Floyd started as a Blues band the Animals The Yardbirds The Hollies etcetera etcetera.
The Beatles were never rooted in the British Blues boom. They just mainly played popular songs by all kinds of artists.

More Blues I think.
Bow to your knowledge as ever Bill but I'm sure I remember them playing some skiffle way back. Blues though obviously a big influence, in fact the only one really. The skiffle thing is probably a figment of my imagination lol

Wikipedia has this;

Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of vocalist Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. With a heavy, guitar-driven sound, they are cited as one of the progenitors of hard rock and heavy metal, although their style drew from a variety of influences, including blues and folk music.

There you go a variety of influences !
Although Heavily influenced by Blues you can hear the folk roots in some of their acoustic songs.
