Who would you choose as the best blues guitarists of all time?
Well in my list their would have to be Joe Bonamassa as one of the best new players to emerge in the last few years. Bonamassa has borrowed from a number of players of the past and present and put his own mark on the blues and as a player is technically excellent. From some the older players, BB King would need to in there, Albert King and from the beginning of blues guitar, Robert Johnson. And although he is known for rock guitar, Jimi Hendrix was really a blues player who blended a number of styles and made it his own. And of course one of the biggest influences on Bonamassa was Stevie Ray Vaughan, of without which no blues hall of fame would be complete.
