Also, as a musician, I have never understood guitar players going on and on about that guy. I think you "had to be there" in the 60's-70's (I don't know what younger folks' excuse is -- I mean, worship Hendrix or Thruston Moore or Helen Wiggin or anybody who was original! Why be a third-hand imitator?) See also IanB's comments below, which I agree with totally (and then some.)

I'm sorry. Once people start using the 'as a musician' argument I lose interest.

Regardless of whether you like Keef or not, if you can't recognise he took his influences and came up with his own sound from them, then...well...I can't be arsed arguing about it.

I can't stand Brian May, but I wouldn't dispute anyone saying he had his own sound.
