Oil City Confidential, a documentary about the cult r&b (original r&b from before its name was stolen) band Dr. Feelgood, is on Sky Arts at 22.00 tonight: obviously to mark today's news of the unique guitarist Wilko Johnson.  

Original RnB, Fred?

Originally music sold to / played by poor black Americans in cities, stolen by posh white kids in England, then once again the sound of poor black America.

But a completely different style of music, Bendy, which is my point, not who or what 'owned' it.
