Beefheart's "voice" was obviously based on Chester Burnett aka Howlin' Wolf, and his tendency to go into a falsetto squeak at the end of a line comes from Little Richard.

But what specific blues TUNES did he "rip off"?

Who originated "Plastic Factory" (verse chords are the same as "Gloria" actually) or "Hair Pie" or "Floppy Boot Stomp" or . . . . (????)

Not saying it ain't so, just that I don't know of any examples.
