Guess my favorite singer finally came to top, well I didn't put him on number 1 at first - zxm

Kinda agree with visitor. His natural voice is better than his singing voice. - zxm

2 Eric Clapton Eric Clapton Eric Patrick Clapton is an English rock and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream. He has also been a member of Derek and the Dominos.

Cocaine is the best thing this man has done (the song, obviously...) - Britgirl

As the only THREE time inductee into the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame, Clapton has done a lot more than just the song cocaine.

One of the world's worst blues singers. He just doesn't have it, and just shouldn't try.

Ha ha, he is not a blues singer. He is blues rock. "Blues Rock" which isn't same. - zxm

3 Stevie Ray Vaughan Stevie Ray Vaughan Stephen "Stevie" Ray Vaughan (October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990) was an American musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer.

Fabulous guitarist. Vocals, not so much.

I agree about SRV's vocals; not the best blues voice that ever was but his guitar solos make up for that. He's pretty amazing. - Britgirl

4 Gary Moore Gary Moore Robert William Gary Moore was a Northern Irish musician, most widely recognised as a singer, songwriter, and virtuoso rock and blues guitarist.

I have a soft spot for this guy. I like his original stuff but also his covers: "The Sky Is Crying" (originally by Elmore James, 1959), and "Oh Pretty Woman" (originally by Albert King).
I have to add that Gary Moore guitar playing skills are even better than his vocals. - Metal_Treasure

5 John Mayall John Mayall

Perhaps the most annoying, grating voice in modern music history. Sounds like a Muppet.

9 Keith Relf Keith Relf Keith Relf was an English musician, well known as the lead singer for the psychedelic band The Yardbirds.

Suffered one of Rock-n-Roll's most spectacular deaths, when he was electrocuted in the bath tub while rehearsing with a plugged-in electric guitar.

As lead singer of the Yardbirds, he was the frontman for Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page, which is some pretty strong blues rock street cred.

10 Mick Jagger Mick Jagger Sir Michael Philip "Mick" Jagger is an English singer, songwriter, and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and a co-founder of the Rolling Stones.

Not a great blues voice.

? Jim Morrison Jim Morrison James Douglas "Jim" Morrison was an American singer, songwriter, and poet best remembered as the lead singer of the Doors.

He's usually more associated with psych rock than blues rock, but he still did some good blues rock things in The Doors. - BrianScott01

13 Van Morrison Van Morrison

If you haven't heard this guy sing, you should. - TheStargazer

She is a British Blues Rock musician. If you don't know of her or have never heard of her, may I suggest you acquaint yourself with her, ASAP! She is amazing! Great powerful voice and one hell of a guitar player. Definitely the best contemporary Blues Rock musician. Go check her out. Now! - Britgirl

This gal can play. Seriously. From what vocals I've heard, sounds like a contralto with medium power, but serious judgements based on live music should be avoided. Too many variables.
