Statements like this, although I totally agree with you, frustrate me a bit. We can always trace it back as far as you want. If Robert Johnson weren't a poor black man, we wouldn't really have rock n roll, we wouldn't have metal. The chain goes back infinitely far. Also, I don't think you have to like person x because they had a huge influence on person y, who you love.
