    It has to be Eric Clapton for me, he's an artist who'll play any style of Blues and will perform electric or acoustically. Stevie Ray Vaughan and Freddie King come in a very close, joint , second.

  • Robert Johnson
    Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac
    Albert King
    Muddy Waters
    John Lee Hooker
    Stevie Ray Vaughan

  • not that anyone else but turkish people know, but Yavuz çetin.
    he made 2 albums "ilk..." & "satılık" ("first..." & "for sale" in eng.) then committed suicide at the age of 31.

    benimle uçmak ister misin? (would you like to fly with me?)

    oyuncak dünya (toy world. as in golden bridge, not candy shop.)

    kimse bilemez (noone can know)

    Kurtar Beni (save me)

    yaşamak istemem (i don't want to live)

    köle (slave)

    are my favourite yavuz çetin songs.

    John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Allman Brothers band, Robert Johnson, Little Walter, Canned Heat, Albert King, Buddy Guy and Johnny A. but he is probably more jazz than blues in most of his work.

  • Johnny Winter, Jonny Lang and Yavuz Çetin are my favourite Blues artists.
