Default one of the best blues tones?

Which blues player got one of the best tone? I like Matt Schofield and Philip Sayce.

I especially love Muddy Water's tone on After the Rain. It's a pretty obvious influence on the fuzz-rock bands of the 60's (Blue Cheer, etc.) a well as the 90's Stoner Metal movement. I always knew they had a bluesy sound and a big influence from it, but wasn't sure exactly where the particular sound originated, because it doesn't the riffs don't sound particularly early Delta or Texas. This album solved the puzzle though.

After the Rain was influenced by fuzz rockers, more than the other way around. Muddy was being pressured by Chess to obtain a more modern sound, so he turned to a Psychedelic tone for Electric Mud, and After the Rain. Don't forget, After the Rain came out in 1969, years after the Garage Rock boom of 1965-66.

Here's some Garage Rock fuzz with an Electric Blues feeling from 65-66:

Spoiler for examples:


By the way, I love After the Rain. The version of Rollin' and Tumblin' on it is sexy as hell.
