Get out of your basement once in a while, Subby. Clearly you haven't exposed yourself to Great White's "House of Broken Love", or even Cinderella's "Long Cold Winter". Perhaps you are young. You need to experience the pain of life to experience true blues.

OK, If we aren't going to include real bluesmen. Or should i say traditional bluesmen. I would add Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Keb Mo. And this guy. A guy that Jimi said, "Tell you what. You play lead and I'll grab the bass."

I'll give this list a huge THIS. And include that Hendrix's Red House is excellent as well.

This is why you don't throw around the word "best" when art is almost entirely subjective, though. Someone always has a thorough list of reasons why you're most likely wrong.

From 1929. Lang, who was white, would have to hide behind a pseudonym -- Blind Willie Dunn -- to record with Johnson, who was black.

I really, really miss Johnny Winter. I saw him at least 30 times (when I lived in Florida in the mid '70s he'd play there 3-4 times a year).
I saw his second to the last concert,  gave him a birthday card.
Coincidentally also saw SRV's second to the last concert.

Here's the first recorded electric guitar. 16 year old George Barnes. March 1, 1938

Here's a recording from George Barnes last record in July 1977. For some reason, he's all but forgotten. I first heard him -- knowingly -- on a record with violinist Joe Venuti. Gems. They did swing standards. But Barnes recorded prolifically as a session guitarist and tried his hand at all kinds of genres. For example, he played country jazz years before Hank Garland turned his hand to it, and he was a favorite guitarist for Leiber and Stoller appearing on their Coaster records. It's doubtful if Farkers will be anything other than mystified by Barnes since he had a bright, clear tone as if there were an 11 setting for bright clear tones.

When I think of the blues, Cinderella definitely leaps to my mind first.
