"A great deal of Muddy's and Elmore James' output can be directly linked to Robert Johnson and more
than just some of Howlin' Wolf's output owes a great deal to Charlie Patton."


I understand, but they were originators in a the post war genre because they electrified the Blues.
After finding that they could be heard after going electric they found a whole unique sound of their
own that has been copied heavily since. It even went on to create other forms of music.
