Albert King. SRV thought of him as a spiritual father. And STRQ010 is right, Clapton's best stuff is on that 66 bluesbreakers album. Brilliant.

+1!!!
Those guys are my favorite blues artists for sure. They may be a good place to start out. For me, when I first started listening to the blues, Buddy Guy turned me into an instant fan.

You may also like Jimi Hendrix's album called "Blues".

Buddy Guy's album Sweet Tea is a perfect beginning point. really shows his rock influence.
