    The English artists studied blues, and could play it. But creating it, Iimplementing it into their songs, IMO, was sometimes a difficult task. The Allman Brothers were an exception. Whipping Post. And Clapton's Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, when it came to the blues, would not have existed without Duane Allman's influence. By the mid-70s Clapton pretty much abandoned blues IMO.

    Duane Allman is to Layla what Mick Taylor is to Sticky Fingers. And there's a Muscle Shoals connection to both albums.
    Allman said kind Of Blue was his favorite album so you could say that Layla, when it came to the blues, would not have existed without Miles' influence either.

    “The biggest influence on my bass playing was James Jamerson, who played on many of my favourite Motown releases,” McCartney said in the Q&A session on his website. In an interview with Music Radar back in 2017, he talked more about Jamerson when the interviewer said that McCartney probably made the bass an acceptable instrument: “Yeah, it became a bit more skilful. I wouldn’t personally credit myself, but thanks for that. But I think James Jamerson, him and me, I’d share the credit there. I was nicking a lot off him.”

    Paul McCartney

    So I suspect Sir Paul was listening to lots of Motown. Hell, back in the day everybody listened to lots of Motown.

    When you had one bass guy doing more than half of Motown's music, the quality stayed pretty consistent. You could count on a certain style because of his bass-playing with most of what came out of Motown.

    Marvin Isley was my favorite bass player of all-time. (Packers' Offense getting healthy...should really be able to open things up for Love.)

    Tomorrow Never Knows is miles ahead of anything Beck. Clapton and even Page did. At least until Page did Zeppelin III. Happenings Ten Years Times Ago by the Yardbirds with Beck and Page on dual guitars was about as close to anything possible.

    Clapton. Beck. Page. All better guitar players than John. George or Paul when he played it. Like he did on Taxman. Great raga rock song. But Paul and John and even George could write better songs than those 3. Paul and John were like Manny Mota and Smokey Burgess. They could wake up. Fall out of bed. Right a great pop rock ballad without much issue. Especially Paul. That was the difference.

    I loved Eric’s stuff with the John Mayall Bluesbreakers. They were definitely authentic in their playing. No pop. Cream was great too. Unfortunately they got along as well as Billy Martin. Reggie Jackson and George Steinbrenner.

    Tomorrow Never Knows is a nice hippy dippy psychedelic song that I haven't listened to in about 30 years. On the other hand I listen to Layla etc about once a month and it sounds better every time i hear it. Still can't figure out which part Clapton is playing and which part Duane is playing but they both sound pretty good to me.
