There are few bands that (who?) display their debt to the great American blues artists with the grace and respect that The Rolling Stones do (perhaps Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac)...and then you add Eric Clapton.

True. Jagger and RIchards in particular have remained true to their blues roots in their music and in playing with old blues masters like Hooker. In addition, they paid for Hubert Sumlin's funeral. Clapton has done more than anyone else to revive the legacy of Robert Johnson.
