Who's your favorite blues-rock guitarrist?

Postby Andy Lee » Thu Jul 19, 2007 1:30 pm

Mine are: Mick Taylor and Rory Gallagher. They. for me, are two of the very few big rock guitarrists who could really communicate the blues for what it is worth musically.

Duane Allman is great, of course, but I hear more jazz and soul in his music than blues. His slide playing on "One Way Out" is spectacular, though.

Rod "The Bottle" Price was right at the top IMO. Also Leslie West.

Johnny Winter.

Robin Trower,,, and if he doesn't classify as Blues/Rock, I'll third the vote for Johnny Winter.

I'm so in awe of the rev!

I love Angus, and Eric and SRV and Jimmy P., Trower, etc. But the rev... Man, that guy's got it down in his boots! When he plays blues.... Holy crap that guy can bring it!

Besides, what was it Jimi said about him? He was the best blues player alive at the time? Something like that.

For me, "ZZ Top's First Album" and "Rhythameen" are IT.
Besides, Billy Gibbons just seems like a guy I want to hang out with either way.. lol..
