Robben Ford is a great bluesman who extends the range of the blues. A real genius.

Your classic bluesmen:
Clapton (Bluesbreakers, Cream and solo)
Anyone named King (BB, Freddy, Albert)
Otis Rush
Buddy Guy
Duane Allman

Believe it or not, Angus Young's licks are all blues based.

Too true. A lot of Jimmy Page's stuff (Yardbirds, and most early Zep) as well.

I don't find him to be the most accessible artist, but if you really really want to know the blues you need to listen to Robert Johnson. He's called "The Grandfather of Rock n' Roll" and if we didn't have recordings of him most people probably wouldn't think he ever was a real person considered the murky details of his life and the legends/rumors attached to him.

although i agree, i can't stand listening to his stuff. i've found for me at least it's easier to listen to covers of it once you've heard his actual sound. the jeff healey band did an awesome cover of stop breakin down.

If it's the feel of the blues you're after, also consider Little Walter. He plays harmonica, but at the end of the day I don't think it matters that much.
