I'm very new to Blues & Jazz, but I'm starting to get more interested into it. I'm a very big fan of rock metal and classical, but I'm very new to blues and jazz. Could someone please give me some advice on the names of people who I should listen to, and some famous songs that I might not know of. This would help me a lot thank you...

Listen to a couple songs from each category I broke down for you, and you should be able to get the full view of how you can play/interpret the blues.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
