If I have to go further afield I'd pick John Martyn....

but Dave Edmunds?????? Am I missing something good? He always seemed inclined to pop/rock from anything I heard, which admittedly isn't that much...

Check out his early lps--blue's helping. on another of his early albums, he does a rock version of a rimsky-korsokov composition, and the guitar work is so amazing, its frightening

Both of these were made well before I Hear You Knockin'

Albert King, Albert Collins, Ry Cooder, Mick Taylor, Jeff Beck in the early days--there's a ton of good blues musicians

Yes yes but the question posed wasnt "Are there tons of good blues musicians?" was it? ...

What you're really saying is that you dont like who I've picked...

So what do you not like about John Martyn? hmm? Ok fair do's... he isn't limited entirely to blues and probably cant be pinned down to any particular category but none the less.... he's pretty unique and a talented bloke who should be better known.

Just in case you don't know who he is here is a linkity link link link

Rory Gallagher and Taste were pretty good musicians in their day. They were part of the British blues scene...

Was Peter Green the guy who left Fleetwood Mac after a religious transformation? His work on Kiln House was amazing...

DAIC...well you are kinda right.

Actually it was Jeremy Spencer who left Fleetwood Mac and joined the Children of God mission in downtown LA.

Peter Green had left the group a few months before, that citing musical differences with Mick Fleetwood and John McVie.

The great guitar work on Kiln House was some of Jeremys ..but mostly Danny Kirwin ...another F. Mac add on -who joined just before Peter Green left the group.

geoff achison -gettin evil (2000) just found him recently and liked his style of combining blues and classical music. tommy castro and joe bonamassa have played in a local club near me on a regular basis and I'll be going back to see tommy castro :good job: as my nick will tell, I'm a big allman brothers fan so fast guitar and rough blues vocals catch my interest, I gotta mention dereck trucks again, just think he's one of the best I've seen live recently, great slide guitar, all styles of music,but I saw him when he played with the allman brothers, he's a regular member but has his own band, if you have "hittin the note" it's worth taking another listen to "instrumental illness" he's featured on the slide guitar. If anyone has listened to any of these artists lately please let me know what you think. :)

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
