I want to know some blues harmonica players. Any that have decent tunes / solos are good. Especially if they play in a band with a good guitarist.

a certain John Popper of Blues Traveler
This guy IS the greatest harmonica player on the planet, no doubts, if you can find it listen to Fallible by Blues Traveler and you'll hear exactly what i mean.

My friend plays harmonica and he showed me John Popper, that guy tears up a harmonica.

The John Popper-ing aside, there are others out there.
Paul Lamb and the King Snakes rock.
And for the more traditional blues harmonica, try listening to some Sonny Boy Williamson, or Junior Wells.

Jack Bruce plays it on Cream's cover of 'Rollin' & Tumblin', and Muddy Waters used harmonica a lot.
