Having my own blues radio show makes this a very very hard decision..... I love the BB King live albums, his audience interaction is amazing(specifically with Ruth Brown "Ain't Nobody's Buisness"...simply amazing) and he is the obvious favorite as far as people getting into the blues..... SRV really helped to bring the blues back into the mainstream in the 80s and was an awesome slide guitarist.....Eric Clapton...a musical lizard! what an amazing man with an awesome history in music his 2 disc blues album has some great blues i really enjoy stormy monday that he does on that album......taj mahal another great blues player even though some of his stuff borders a little too "latinish" which i know comes from his background but he has some great real home blues that makes him amazing......albert king the album on Stax "Born Under a Bad Sign" great freaking album great freaking song...need i say more about him.... and finally jimi hendrix, legend, his blues ..red house...amazing the Blues album..... great but not my favorite as far as this specific genre goes.... i would really have to say the BB is my man here...he started out as a radio DJ which gives me a special connection to him(yeah its wierd) but its tough but BB is who i would pick!!

King, easily, Jimi was a close second though and Clapton was third. BB is just amazing though.

Stevie Ray, hands down. He is easily the most skilled guitarist, ever.

These are al GREAT guitarists....I am 18..and one of the only people in my school who likes this kind of music..Beleive it or not there are kids in my highschool..that say SRV WHO???..i think thats pathetic..SRV is by far the best guitarist out of the group. If he hadn't died only GOD knows what he would have come up with. I have a dvd of SRV, clapton, and some other guitar greats..and he blew them all away..i could listen to him all day long!!...but, i really love all the other guitarists listed..

go jimi, although I love Clapton. Stevie ray Vaughan sucks worse than sucking, and I love any kind of slow bluesy, smoky jazz type stuff. You get a big marcing band near me, & I'm tuned out. Lots of horns at once is one of the most obnoxious things u can hear musically.

Ol' slow hand, is that Clapton. Hands down, my fav. Hendrix song is 'Voodoo Child', but as far as blues go I like, 'Hey Joe, & Little Wing'

I'm gonna go with BB King on this one. When I saw him in concert, it was such an amazing experience. So much energy and good vibes...everyone was so happy and excited and in complete awe of him. Now granted...he's the only one I've seen live (not others for obvious reasons). Plus, I have alot of nostalgic reasons for prefering him over the others...have alot of good childhood memories attached to his music. My parents introduced my brothers and I to BB King early on, and his music is something we can all enjoy together even today.
