I love Blues Rock it's so relaxed and you just play what you wanna play.
I love the "old" Blues Rock, like Jimi Hendrix or Allman brothers or Led Zeppelin, so your list was perfect Jazz Funeral.
But if you like you can always put your other favorite songs of Blues Rock here, even if it's the "new" blues rock, doesn't matter.


Greetzzz :D

There was this wonderful thread we had here a while ago with a list of Blues Rock musicians and their recommended albums...can't seem to put my finger on what it was calle....oh wait Official Classic Rock Recommendation Thread (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=228168) :cool:

Rory Gallagher - Loanshark Blues, In Your Town, Crest of A Wave, They Don't Make Them Like You Anymore

Great list, but this bit needs expanding...

Bullfrog Blues, Bought and Sold, Edged in Blue, Barley and Grape Rag...and those are just some I cannot leave unmentioned

Possibly the best blues rock song of all time is Oh Well by Fleetwood Mac. I'm sure the thread starter is going to disregard anything by Fleetwood Mac (understandable given the public's perception of them), but before they got Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham they were a blues rock band that rocked pretty damn hard.

Everybody needs to hear Johnny Winter's "Highway 61." A killer band that is mixing blues and extreme metal influences is Brimstone Fist. Check out the songs "Wastelands" and "Imaginary Friends."

Believe it or not, the Steve Miller Band actually started out as a San Francisco blues band. After The Joker became a monster hit, they switched to a more pop-rock sound (it was still great music though. The difference between pop music then to pop music now). These two SMB songs were their biggest pre-Joker hits, and are just plain awesome. And the Bob Seger classic at the top is a great rock song influenced by blues.

I can't believe no one mentioned Stevie Ray Vaughn. Such songs as Pride and Joy, Little Sister, Cold Shot, Texas is Flooding, and his rendition of Voodoo Chile (slight return) will send shivers down your spine.

Led Zeppelin~Since I've Been Loving you! The Live version at Maddison Square Garden is even better!!

I never bother to mention SRV around here. There's no point. If anybody mutters the faintest anything about blues, there is instantly a parade of posts about SRV as if nobody has ever heard of him. And I especially don't bother with "Pride And Joy" because I'm sick to death of that song and it is guaranteed to be mentioned right after somebody says, "Oh yeah, SRV's the best".

I think it's safe to say that everybody knows about Stevie Ray Vaughan.


BTW, I ain't even mad about this. :shrug: Whatever. Sometimes things just need to be said.

I sort of rediscovered Robin Trower a few months ago. I was a huge fan back in the late 70's. I was such a fan that for my 16th birthday I traveled across the state to a Trower/Ten Years After show in San Antonio, TX and it still ranks as one of the favorite shows of my life.

Anyway, I found a youtube video of him recorded in 2009 playing Daydream. It was always a favorite. Sadly James Dewar is no longer with us, but the new singer isn't bad......and Trower still has amazing tone. It doesn't look like he's lost anything.

Started listening to Chuck Berry about 10 years ago. Probably a little light compared to the bands listed above. But it is from the pioneer of modern guitar rock. Song has a wonderful pianist too!

If you haven't seen it. this video takes stage showmanship to a whole new place for me.

Youtube:

Chuck Berry. 07 - Mean Old World (The Blues) - BBC Theatre, London 1972
