Best Blues Rock Artistsshatti
The Top Ten
For blues I prefer Eric Clapton over Led Zeppelin. - zxm
Come on, ZZ Top is very close, second, maybe, but Clapton is just the master of the blues. Listen to any of his works with the Bluesbreakers or some of his solo works like Slowhand. This guy is so versatile and could own any genre, be it reggae, blues, or psychedelia. But he will always be known as one of the blues greats of all time.
P.S. Skynyrd is great, but they're more suited to southern rock.
Nobody else comes close- should be #1 hands down
Best band ever
Stupid this isn't at # 1
Yet another band led by Eric Clapton.
Most people would put this at number one and that's a fact. Why because this the 2 best artist for people. It was always between the stones and the Beatles. How this not 2 when more people like The Rolling Stones more than Led Zeppelin. that makes no sense. The Rolling Stones are better than Led Zeppelin because there more rock. Listen to songs like Gimme Shelter, Sympathy for the Devil, Jumpin' Jack Flash, Wild Horses, Rocks Off, and more. How can Led Zeppelin more than Rolling Stones! Most Rolling Stones songs are better than Led Zeppelin best songs like Stairway to Heaven. Stairway to Heaven is not better than all songs from The Rolling Stones, or The Beatles. More people in the would pick a song from the 2 artist over Stairway to Heaven and that's a fact. - AliceinChains
You make good points about The Stones, but maybe what's partially in play here is that while they did play some blues rock and have a li of blues-rock influences, some of there work was also more pop-based than say Clapton or Zeppelin, so in the context of the list people are voting for those who didn't deviate as far. - Billyv
What a player. He and hendrix topping the league to me.
Come on! Stevie is the best! I don't understand that AC/DC are in the list when they�'re playing hard rock
ZZ Top should be #1. Sure, Led Zeppelin came first, but ZZ Top has better vocals, drums, guitar, bass, lyrics, and guitar solos. They're possibly my favorite band of all time. No, not possibly. Definitely. AC/DC is garbage. All of their singers they've ever had have sucked, they have had too many lineup changes, the guitar work sucks, the lyrics are incredibly bad, they don't put any effort in, they never experiment and try new things or sounds with their music (unlike ZZ Top), the vocals are some of the worst I've heard in my life, they have no variety and are incredibly repetitive. ZZ Top does everything the exact opposite of what I just listed, and are great as a result.
Shri Mataji is Great.
Technically they are southern rock
"Blues rock? " Uh, no.
BB King, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Guns N Roses shouldn't really be here. BB King is Blues, Lynyrd Skynyrd is Southern Rock and Guns N Roses is Bog-Rock (a substandard subgenre of Rock I just invented). - Britgirl
IT'S A LONG WAY TO THE TOP IS ONE OF THE BEST ROCK AND BLUES SONGS EVER WRITTEN
Best thing he ever did was going on the blues tour. Great player with really raw and noisy sound.
Greatest guitarist in my lifetime - the emotion comes through in his music like no other. - KidsHaveNoRock
He didn't play the blues, he shred them. I still got the blues for himV 1 Comment
