You may be on to something. The Black artists you list for the most part were all prodigies and/or virtuoso multi-instrumentalists.

Already false because:

Tom Verlaine > James Brown
Funkadelic > Led Zeppelin

I can buy Funkadelic being better than Led Zepplin, but Tom Verlaine can't touch James Brown. There are a lot of guys who can pull of what Verlaine pulls off, but James Brown is one of a kind.

You may not like his music, but he is one of a kind. Trust me, I've looked, and there is no one that does what he does.

If you had said Richard Thompson I could see it, but Johnny Lang is a blues man.

Verlaine's whole thing is that he stays as far away from blues as possible.

I hear a lot of blues elements, a little post-punk, obvious rock influences, and some folk when I hear Verlaine.

Television was always difficult for me to describe, mostly because I think they are grossly overrated. I know they proceed Joy Division, and the Pixies, but that is who they sound like to me.



Kizzle add David Bowie to you OP
