Def. Buddy Guy as soon as you listen to him you will hear the influence he had over Jimi. I also recommend listening to Albert King, he was more of an influence on Stevie Ray Vaughan but he def. has an awesome style.

Check out Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan (Jimi actually had a huge influence on him rather than the other way around), John Lee Hooker (a personal favorite), Howlin' Wolf, etc.

As far as some delta blues, check out Big Bill Broonsy, Charlie Patton, Elmore James, Son House, Bukka White, etc.

Stevie Ray Vaughan, Cream, Rory Gallagher; they're probably closest to Hendrix's style. Then, as for just blues, look into B.B. King, Albert King, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and Buddy Guy.

All insanely good players.

Stevie Ray Vaughn. He credits Hendrix for influencing every aspect of is playing, and style, for that matter.

Buddy Guy.

BB King

I don't HATE Hendrix , I'm just not very partial to him.

I'll listen to his version of All along the watch tower if it comes on.

..but really becuase the singing is catchy...haha.

No mention of Paull Butterfield yet eh. If you like blues harp songs, Paul Butterfield is the way to go.
