The Top Ten
Mostly hard rock. But they were heavily inspired by blues music. Songs like Whole Lotta Love, Since I've Been Loving You, Heartbreaker, When the Levee Breaks, Rock and Roll, Babe I'm Gonna Leave etc are prominent blues rock (hard/heavy blues) songs of their's. - zxm
Paul Butterfield band weren't exactly blues rock, but straight up Chicago blues.
Ab-so-'-loutely. Almost single-handedly introduced it.
"James Pitts runs the gamut from sweet and smooth to uplifting to downright raucous without skipping a beat. He bends strings, works the slide and coaxes notes from the guitar only very accomplished guitarists can create and if that doesn't mean anything to you, you're not listening. Toss aside all of those years of Rolling Stone magazines inane "100 Greatest Guitarist" lists and listen to the music, fer chrissake! James Pitts is one. And if he's not on your list, he's on mine. He can ' play and it is all over Come to Play The Blues." - Francis Simon : Blues Tone Magazine
The most talented group of musicians I have seen in years! Can't wait to see them again, wish everyone could experience them. I was really surprised. Great Band.
Excellent band. Great player, saw him doing a show with actor Bill Murray at the Blue Duck in Hutchinson, Kansas as well as opening for Johnny Winter in Wichita.
Saw him last night, he did a killer medley rendition of Who Knows an If 6 Was 9. This guy can really play.V 9 Comments
Billy is like a God to me
I don't have to say anything other than: I Need You Tonight. - Britgirl
Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page were all members.
Agreed. Jeff deserves more attention as a guitarist. He was amazing. - Gg2000
It's quite sad just how underrated this band is. For those who haven't already, please give them a listen. Jeff is an incredible blues guitarist. - Britgirl
Not really that bluesy, in my opinion. - Gg2000
They're very underrated. - Userguy44
The greatest thing to happen to blues in a long time
Excellent band and bass player, Chris Chesna, is amazing
MoGuitar is a soul blues, funk blues - blues rock power trio. The band has a bunch of original material and covers some great material as well. Keep an eye out for them.V 2 Comments
Why is this band not higher on this list?
They should be in the top 5, or at least the top 10!
One of the greatest bands of all time, of ALL music, let alone just rock.
My opinion though...lol
I love them, but I don't think I've heard them do any straight blues stuff. They're more of a roots rock band. - Gg2000
The Weight is great but the lines "Take a load off, Fanny" is a real eyebrow-raiser. Can't imagine why...All I can say is, thank goodness for the comma! - Britgirl
Some of their stuff is more hard rock, but they have very strong blues influences. They deserve to be higher up. - Gg2000
What a guitarist, amazing
Southern Rock, Blues-Rock and Hard-Rock. Quite brilliant. - Britgirl
They're good. - Userguy44
Icelandic Blues-Rock band. A stand-out song by them is "Way Down We Go" I love the raspy slur of the vocals. Really really good. - Britgirl

I am not sure. I haven't heard a l lot of their songs. But those which I listened, were more likely hard rock. - zxm
English band from a little place called Worthing. - Britgirl

The Hermits were not a blues band by any means. - Gg2000
Humble pie were a British blues rock group from the late sixties, early seventies. Similar, but more bluesy than the stones. a lot more harmonica and back up singers. The black crowes remind me a lot of them.
