The Greenhornes are definitely my favorite of the bunch. They sound like a British blues band from the 60s.

Hope I've helped.

I've just listened through their debut album, Roll Away, and I absolutely love it! Lots of energy, electric and acoustic stuff ( both very good ), extremely easy listening, good lyrics...I like 'em a lot better than The Black Keys, but it's a taste thing, nothing really objective.

This is a real good reccommendation, to anyone that likes blues/rock, and maybe a good entrance into some blues for fresh listeners.

Yes I checked out Back Door Slam. It's great, and very refreshing to see a good blues rock band in the modern era. Check them out!

Yeah I thought Eric Gales' guitar playing may suit your tastes. Riff orientated electric blues with alot of overdriven guitar work.
#22
Hey guys, if you want to check out Back Door Slam, check this thread on their forums, it's the download to a live show that's great quality and a good way to see how great their live shows can be.
#24
So I gave a listen to some Back Door Slam, and I have to say its pretty good. A lot more refined sounding than the Black Keys. It's cool how those two groups can be modern and also have such a different take on bluesy rock.

Can't really say I'm a huge fan of the raconteurs.

I did.

The Raconteurs and The White Stripes to me are just kind of meh... I don't dislike them, but they aren't my favorites.



Edit: Who is the other guitarist? I like his work. Jack White's playing, to me sounds like he's drunk or something.

Ah, either way its all good. I consider myself a fanboy of JackWhite. So Im kinda partial, but still. That, The White Stripes version of Death Letter under blackpool. The song writing, I think its blues. If not, I still think its BOSS

^I've just never really liked Jack White all that much. I don't dig his singing at all really, and his guitar playing usually just seems too manic, and weird for my tastes.

My favorite part of that second vid was definitely Meg Whites tits bouncing while she banged on the drums.
