I'm starting to get into blues. i am really big classic rock fan [my top 5 would be Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Boston, RHCP, Hendrix]. So, i was wondering what blues artists would I like based on what i would like now?

Check out Led Zeppelin IV, Hendrix's Blues ...

Also Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers; then John Mayer and Joe Bonamassa.
#3
Rory Gallagher, especially his early stuff, he's really good. Also Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimmy Vaughn aswell and some stuff like that.
Cam Sampbell's my hero
#4
Cream, and the Bluesbreakers are good.

i guess eric clapton is really the biggest link between classic rock and blues. his stuff with cream, as well as with john mayall and his bluesbreakers is some of the best blues you're ever going to hear.

and i got massively into blues through Stevie Ray Vaughan too.

Start with LZ I and work your way backwards to Charley Patton, Son House and Leadbelly.

Rory Gallagher and Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac (that's pre 1971 stuff!!), tends to do the job for me. John Mayall as mentioned before and Johnny Winter, Joe Walsh, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Canned Heat, Freddie King etc....

You MUST listen to Stevie Ray Vaughan!


No he mustn't, he's very overrated.

Waaaay too overrated!

But yeah, if you want more kind of bluesrock I would suggest bands like Ten Years After, Bluesbrakers or early Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green.

Guys like John Lee Hooker, B.B.King, Howlin' Wolf are awesome too.

Or go even more back, to the delta blues from the 30's with Charley Patton and Robert Johnson...
Guitars: Fender Highway one -08, Epiphone SG, Walden acoustic and two parlour-acoustics from the early 30's
Amps: Fender -65 Deluxe Reverb, Marshall Valvestate 8240, Peavey Rage and one unknown one, hehe...
Pedals: Dunlop Fuzzface, Original Crybaby

Is that the reason your user is srvflood?


Haha, I hate my username. I was the biggest SRV nut when I made this name, my taste changes all the time though, so maybe in a year it might be applicable.
