Ive only heard of Sonny Landreth, John Mayall and Yardbirds but i bet thats a pretty sweet lineup.
btw- isnt Mayall about 80 now?

That's blues ecstacy right there. Tinsley Ellis=My biggest influence.

Leon Russell goes back aways, he plays with George Harrison on the Concert for Bangladesh. Sonny Landreth is one of my favorites. Nobody plays slide like he does. I never get tired listening to his Grant Street album.
