Assuming you enjoy listening to blues music, what groups or artists are your favorite?
I'll start ...
Tinsley Ellis. Been listening to him since his first album was cut, 25yrs ago. Definitely a great show. TE on Youtube.
Stevie Ray Vaughan. Was introduced to blues for the first time at a small, local venue. This was early 1980's, and his sets focused on traditional blues and a few of his classics. A great way to have your eyes opened, at a SRV concert that blows the roof off the joint.
Ruthie Foster. Solo or with her group, she's a powerhouse. Very gritty and soulful. Living In a Small Town on YouTube.
Just to name a few.
Too many to list really but here's a few that come to mind:
"I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations” – James Madison 1788
I am a drummer, vocalist and sometimes bassist in a band that plays the blues.
Robert Johnson songs done by various artists is at the top of my list.
Jeff Beck "Blow by Blow" is a classic and my favourite.
B. B. King, Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, Johnny Taylor.....etc. etc.
"A Smith & Wesson always beats 4 aces!"
The Man Prayer. "Im a man, I can change, if I have to.....I guess!" ~ Red Green
B B King
Z Z Top
"If you make something idiot proof, someone will make a better idiot."
Dangit, I thought the thread title said bluegrass.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
Robert Randolph and the Family Band
Kenny Wayne Shepherd
In no particular order and omitting many:
Stevie Ray Vaughn
(70s) Bonnie Raitt
Almost all of the above!
"ain't feeding no more frogs for snakes!"
Miss my xm/sirius sub. Listened to bluesville almost exclusively.
It could be worse!
Stevie Ray and ZZ Top.... Texas rock'n blues can't be beat.
To name just a few...
John Lee Hooker
...too many more greats to keep naming. One of my favorite genres of music!
Mark Knopfler's guitar has a lot of blues sounds
Eric Clapton, Papa Chubby, Kenny Wayne Shepard
