Well that's the thing about an open forum, particularly one with guitar players, you can draw a few dissenting, disdainful or contrary points of view. So, yes it can be "fickle". Any of that is okay as long as it's respectful, which I thought my post was, having stated that he is clearly talented. Plus, I would say that I have seen videos of him that I have found enjoyable. No one disputes his skills or talent. We all have players who represent what we enjoy, who we think set the bar, or became our influences. I am sure a lot of folks today would not enjoy the tone or the style of Otis Rush, regardless of how many people he influenced or the music he created. As was said in the The Godfather, "it's not personal".
