Commodification in Blues

Blues music although originated by African Americans became popularized by European groups who adapted the techniques of the Delta Blues musicians. White artists and groups like The Beatles, Elvis, The Zombies and The Animals became popular and started creating blues records that were heard globally.  They stole the profits of the black musicians who started the blues and created the original style of it. The blues style of music eventually gave birth to rock and roll.
