The British Blues Network traces a group of influential British musicians who admired and were inspired by traditional African American blues artists. Their music gave rise to some of the most famous British bands, including The Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, Eric Clapton, and Led Zeppelin. According to reviewer Ulrich Adelt of the University of Wyoming, Dr. Kellett’s book is “a definitive study” that will “appeal to scholars and fans alike.”
