Blah blah blah. Dude, that may well be true in some subjective way, but back in the 1970s when I first heard Neil, nobody was doing what he was doing. It's one thing to come along afterwards and cop somebody's licks, but to create the style in the first place, that's something much more important and valuable. I could play all Neil's parts too if I chose to, but that wouldn't make me the groundbreaker that he is.
