    Позвольте не согласиться. Бибикинги - это прилизанный блюз, попсовый, чтоб народ хавал (со всеми вытекающими$). А такие ребята как T-Model Ford - это блюз, такой как он есть. И скорее у них в кумирах были Robert Johnson, Muddy, Dixon, Wolf, Reed, Elmor James, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee и т.д. Сравните, это же очевидно!

    Однако если бы не бибикинги и альберткинги не было бы таких вот обычных парней которые старались научиться играть и быть как их кумиры) ;-)
