Lately I've been listening to a lot of Otis Rush, and really getting into it. Well, I was just wondering who are some other blues musicians I could check out?

I've been dabbling in blues lately as well. John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson, Lightning Hopkins, and T-Bone Walker are good. Bo Diddley is really good, but he's more R&B than straight blues.

I've also been listening to garage rock from the 90s and it has a strong blues influence. I guess a lot of rock music does. Anyway, a few of my favorites:
