I find blues extremely boring when it's bluesrock/pure blues.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

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.

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).

For some reason, the "old school" blues guys don't really do it for me. I can appreciate Robert Johnson but I can't say he blew my mind when I first heard him.

Blues isn't as interesting as some genres. Though the blues note can make things so bloody groovy and takes a good ear to make interesting.

Other guitarists that use blues though not necessarily in a blues band. Hendrix, Page, Gilmour, Clapton. Possibly the four biggest names in guitar history.

I hate playing blues though. Jazz and classical are more fun.
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"
