So can anyone recommend some good current blues artists?

I like the black keys,which i guess is bluesy rock, but I really like stuff more along the lines of joe bonamassa.

Joe Bonnamassa is good, as I have recently discovered. He is worthy of a +1.

John Mayer

John Mayer
I would say that John Mayer is the Cosmopolitan of the blues world, while Bonamassa is the Jack and Water.

Anyway, try some Gov't Mule, some T Model Ford, Some Junior Kimbrough, some Ben Harper, and some Dax Riggs

Tab Benoit, Walter Trout.

That's about all I can think of. They're both great artists though.

^I have ONE Walter Trout song, and that's his cover of Blues Deluxe (which is epic)

The Soledad Brothers, Cut In The Hill Gang, Mr David Viner, and The Dirtbombs. But The D-Bombs are more soul/punk.

Are the Soledad Brothers any good?

Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jonny Lang, and Keb Mo.
