Some Great Bluesmen? Name your favourite!
 
Hey guys i like lots of bluesmen like: T-Bone Walker, Freddie King, BB King, Peter Green, Magic Sam. Can you name some blues men you like so i have some new kind of original blues to listen to.

I find blues extremely boring when it's bluesrock/pure blues.

I find blues to be an excuse for people that play guitar poorly.

I "feel" incredibly irritated by the fact that all of their bends are flat. Does that count?

His playing sounds pretty spot on to the old pre-World War II blues "masters" though.

I like most all the great classic Delta guys... Son House and Robert Johnson and Skip James and all those cats.
However, there are also a lot of guys from the revival era that are great too; the crowd of young white guys who followed Gary Davis around... David Bromberg and Dave Van Ronk and many others.
Some fine contemporary traditional-style players as well. Keb Mo, Guy Davis.... Lots more.

I got the free trial of XM radio with my new car, and the ONLY channel I found to listen to is the "Bluesville" channel.

George "Harmonica" Smith is pretty cool.


Nero Galon 02-11-2013 12:28 PM

Brian Fallon.

Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf if no one mentioned them yet.

FTFY

Chuck ****in' Berry. He's a more rock 'n' roll bluesman, but he is one of the originals. And was a BAUS.

Also, John Lee Hooker (pretty sweet name).
