    To tough to choose.  For blues/rock, probably Jimi Hendrix, but right up there is John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, Cream, Harvey Mandel, Paul Butterfeild Blues Band, and, of course The Rolling Stones.
     
    All of whom owe their fame and fortune, of course, to the real blues giants like,
    Charlie Patton
    Robert Johnson
    Blind Lemon Jefferson
    Rev. Gary Davis
    Son House
    John Lee Curtis "Sonny Boy" Williamson
    Alex Miller aka Sonny Boy Williamson II
    Leadbelly
    Big Bill Broonzy
    Howlin' Wolf
    Lightnin' Hopkins
    Otis Rush
    Mississippi John Hurt
    J. B. Lenoir
    Elmore James
    Muddy Waters
    B. B. King
    T-Bone Walker
    John Lee Hooker
    Buddy Guy
    Taj Mahal

    And others I can't think of right off the top of my head.

    Black Pumas are killing it right now.
    All-time blues rock best is Zeppelin, because they just did it best lol

    Favorite blues blues is the one who Hendrix copied, Buddy Guy.  I don't have beef about it, but Hendrix gets a TON of credit that Buddy Guy deserves, including some of Hendrix's "innovation" and stage presence, which are emulations of Buddy.  Little Wing though, he gets credit on that brilliance, but then SRV took it to another level.

    I didn't list Jimi as blues but if I should, he would be #2.

    Get his album Hendrix: Blues. Nice electric and acoustic Jimi singing the blues more old school.

    Somehow Buddy Guy played a song on Stone Free: A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix - but I guess the man has got to pay the bills.

    Zeppelin: Since I've Been Loving You - that's about as great as blues can be.

    That blues covers album that the Stones released a few years back is fantastic. Really enjoyed that.

    I don't know that one. I saw the show on tv they played with muddy waters at that tiny club. I may have to watch that again soon.

    For sure, cool stuff!  It seems like Mick and Keith get a lot of the credit there, but it was really Brian Jones who was the blues instigator early on- at least that's my understanding.

    Another great blues-rock player, one I've been listening to a lot again these days, is that big lovable Great Fatsby, Leslie West.
