Decided it was time to balance things out a little from BrianScott01's list of Top 10 White Blues Musicians. I love so many so I apologise if I've left out a really obvious musician who deserves to be here - you are welcome to add or vote for an existing favourite.
The Top Ten
1Muddy WatersMcKinley Morganfield, known by his stage name Muddy Waters, was an American blues musician who is often cited as the "father of modern Chicago blues".
Obviously Muddy is special and incredibly talented but since it's so hard for me to decide on an all-out favourite, I give him gold for sentimental reasons. He was the first Blues musician I fell in love with. - Britgirl
I love his husky, raspy, gritty, gravelly vocals! And I promise not to mention what a fantastic guitarist and harmonica player he is... - Britgirl
4Freddie KingFreddie King was an American blues guitarist and singer. He has been described as one of the "Three Kings" of electric blues guitar, along with Albert King and B.B. King.
5Buddy GuyGeorge "Buddy" Guy is an American blues guitarist and singer. He is an exponent of Chicago blues and has influenced guitarists including Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Jeff Beck, John Mayer and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
6B.B. KingRiley B. "B.B." King was an American blues singer, electric guitarist, songwriter, and record producer.
I do love Howlin' Wolf but I can't help thinking he is the vocal spit of Popeye! Sorry! I DO love him, but my cockatiel Charlie loves him more. - Britgirl
9Albert KingAlbert King Nelson, known professionally as Albert King, was an American blues guitarist and singer, and a major influence in the world of blues guitar playing.
