    Every time I see this thread, a very perplexing question arises in my head, one that has been asked many times.  The question arises because almost all the examples given here of rock musicians singing the blues are white bands.  So the question is:  "Can white people sing the blues?"

    There are good arguments suggesting they should not.  Here's a good example of what I mean:

    That article presents an argument against whites singing and playing the blues that is hard to argue against.  I have about 65 albums filed under blues in my collection.  Almost all of the artists represented in that section are black musicians.  My blues section does not include cross-over artists like John Mayall, Canned Heat, Harvey Mandel, or The Rolling Stones (etc.), all of whom are steeped in the blues.  In years past, I had kept some of those white artists in my blues section but eventually pulled them out.  To my way of thinking, blues is basically a black music genre.

    But then wait!  I see I still have Charlie Musselwhite and Paul Butterfield filed under "blues".  How do you not keep Charlie filed under "blues"?  Also, my John Mayall records are in their own little section (because I have several of them), but how do you not connect John to the blues?  And the same for Paul Butterfield?

    So again, that question nags at me.  I still think blues is basically a black music genre. But am I able to be as true to that notion as the author of the article linked above?  Evidently I am not.

    I usually call my cousin Eli Cook for a good fix of the blues. He has played with BB King, Gary Clark jr and many others through the years. Currently working on a new album.

    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.
