if it wasn't for slavery, we wouldn't have the blues. If it wasn't for the blues we wouldn't have Robert Johnson. If it wasn't for Robert Johnson, we wouldn't have Chuck Berry. If it wasn't for Chuck Berry we wouldn't have John Mayall, If it wasn't for Mayall, we wouldn't have Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Peter Green, Keith Richards, or George Harrison. If it wasn't for Clapton, Beck, Page, Green, Richards, Harrison we wouldn't have your favorite band. So next time you oppose slavery, just sing the chorus to your favorite song and remember, They are the ones that truly sold their soul for rock n roll. FYI, the leaders of Africa sold them to us in the first place. We didn't just go steal them. Hence the reason they were looked at as property. We because America bought them.
