Default Please help me find similar artists, im trying to diversify :]

I love a lot of classic rock like Zeppelin, Floyd, Clapton, Vaughan but I have trouble finding current artists that are just as good. I'm a really big John Mayer fan; I think he's a really good guitarist and has amazing vocal range, and I like Jack Johnson, Spoon, groups like that. I don't like punk rock at all--I prefer more of a blues sound but it seems like the industry is saturated with the punk sound. I've tried getting into Indie bands like the walkmen, fiery furnaces, of montreal, the subways, etc I just can't get into 'em. Maybe you guys have some suggestions for the style I like, I really appreciate it

Thanks...This Uriah Heep group is pretty amazing. I definitely hear some Stevie Ray Vaughan influence in Robin Trower.

Yeah, but Robin Trower has been in the buisiness much longer, he was an original member of Procol Harum.

Sorry, it was directed at boo boo but it wouldn't let me edit my post to quote his post. Thanks Explosions, I'll check those out in a minute :]
