Does anybody know of any old bands/artists I could check out? I'm talking about 30's, 40's, 50's.

Thanks...

Charlie Christian, one of the great ole' guitar legends. Died in 1942.

Robert Johnson, Johnny Cash, Miles Davis, and gah. I'm somewhat irritated at the moment, and can't be bothered to think of more.

Django Reinhardt (godfather of shred)
Dave Mustain has wrote some of the most amazing solos...
That he can't actually play!

Leadbelly is always pretty cool. Robert Johnson is pretty good as well. Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and Chuck Berry are all awesome and were around in the 50's.

You race toward an early grave.

It's just cool to listen to music before rock came along, it was all so original back then.
