Just before the old place (or was it the old, old place) went down I vaguely recall a ‘blues’ thread which listed some of the ‘modern’ or more recent bluesmen treading the boards and spanking their planks.
A neighbour who is really into the blues has asked me which bluesers I’m listening to (mainly because I play the guitar and he once dragged me along to a Walter Trout gig). In truth I’m not really that into ‘pure’ blues and don’t know who to recommend. I tend to like more ‘melodic’ blues based stuff and was only able to offer up John Mayer and Tedeschi Trucks as fairly recent arrivals on the scene.
Is ‘our’ blues specialist Junior Wells?. Anyway, any suggestions and links from you kind folks would be much appreciated.
