the stones opened alot of doors for the bluesmen ....but only by feeding the white folk through an acceptable medium...ie themselves.
That was how all - or at least most of the black performers felt back then, not just the bluesman, but the black soul singers, etc., too. It wasn't so much that they didn't like the Stones sound, but that it took white kids playing their music (and not just the Stones) for their music to sell. Their music didn't sell and wasn't accepted until these white kids recorded their stuff, so while they were grateful, at the same time they were unhappy that it took whites to get other whites to buy their stuff. They felt their original stuff that they recorded was just as good as what the Stones and other white groups were covering, and of course it was. But this was the '60s, and in places like in all of the southern U.S. they still had separate water fountains that black and whites could drink from, etc, plus you almost never saw black folks on TV, not until around '70 or so. Change was happening, yes, but very slowly and too show for some.
