Title says it all. Huge Rory Gallagher fan here. Also into BB King and the Chicago blues scene.

It's the music I love just as much as metal. :)

It's more of a rollicking blues, but I've always liked some SRV.

I do enjoy the Blues, but not as much as other genres. I'm not sure how exactly to qualify my tastes, especially in geographic terms, but I tend to prefer Blues that's either very stripped down (Robert Johnson) or more "rocking" blues like SRV. I think Blues loses at lot of its essence when you start bringing in horn sections and dozens of backup singers, but that's just me.

Well, big fan of Dzem here, a polish blues-rock band. If that counts :)

I'm into blues rock more so but I've been meaning to get into the pure blues scene a bit more, especially since my band has a lot of that influence to go along with the metal. My favorites are Robert Johnson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, George Thorogood, and Joe Bonamassa.

Most white boy blues is god awful, save for a few artists who don't pretend to be something they're not. Lately I've been getting into old time locals Boyd Rivers and Belton Sutherland, who lived about a half hour north of me back in their day.

Belton Sutherland - "Kill The Old Grey Mule"
Boyd Rivers - "You Got To Take Sick And Die"

Hey man, Dege Legg is a great blues player! And Colin James. Man, I love me some good blues. Second only to death metal in my musical tastes. Colin James, Santeria, B.B. King, Robert Johnson, all top notch stuff.

I'm not a fan but I like the genre, the only band I really know is the Hobo Blues Band from our country.

Who said Muddy Waters? I have his split with Howlin' Wolf, it's cool as hell. I'm starting to prefer Wolf's side, though nothing beats Walking Through The Park.
Lighting Hopkins, I like him as well, though he does have ACDC syndrome, I enjoy it. I find that John Lee Hooker does what he does, better.

I'm not that well versed in blues yet, but I buy an album occasionally and am definitely getting into this genre more l.

I'm very picky when it comes to blues but there is some spectacular music out there. I have yet to hear a contemporary blues artist that can stack up next to what was recorded by the black bluesmen from the 60s and earlier, though. I HATE Stevie Ray Vaughn and similar stuff. Cats like Slim Harpo are more my speed (he comes to mind cuz I just picked up a best-of today on LP for like $3). Here's one of his most famous songs, later covered by the Rolling Stones who cite him as a major influence.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWLvm11MAaM

Howlin' Wolf is probably my favorite blues performer. His 50s stuff with Hubert Sumlin on guitar just plain rips. Here's a killer up tempo number from that era:

Love Son House. That's some heavy music right there. In fact, sometimes when I listen to stuff like Son House, etc. I feel kinda stupid for listening to metal and bands that try sthoooooo hard to be dark and evil.

Love delta blues and any kind of really stripped down sounding stuff.

Anyone that's into this kind of stuff should look into Abner Jay. The little information available on him paints the picture of quite an interesting character. Mississippi Records has been reissuing a lot of his material for fairly cheap.

Sorry man; really don't see why that would happen. Don't feel stupid!

I basically grew up with a whole lot of old, classic blues, and abandoned much of it by the time I got to my teen years. Recently though I've been coming back to it in a big way, as well as discovering people I never used to listen to. Leadbelly, Memphis Slim, John Hamond, Muddy Waters, John lee HOoker, Dyna Washington. Big mama Thornton was also terrific....what a snarl she has.

It seems I only like the old stuff.

I just fucking love the blues scale. All my favorite metal bands use it in their guitar solos. Blues has been a part of heavy metal up through and including thrash metal. After thrash, I think the blues element of metal was finally completely gone. For shame.

Wait, what? Where did it go? What the hell are you listening to? :lol:

Thumbs up to whomever mentioned Big Mama Thorton. Muddy Waters gets spinned occasionally, too. Big fan of the old stuff.

Well the exception to what I said would probably be Death 'N Roll, since it's DM with RNR elements.

Mostly though, extreme metal (black and death) don't use the blues scale in their music.

In fact probably most thrash metal doesn't use it either. However Pantera definitely used it in their stuff, which I found very enjoyable.

You don't listen to extreme metal. You probably listened to Six Feet Under and deduced that about Death & Roll. There's plenty of black, death, and especially thrash bands that use pentatonic. I think you believe yourself to know more of the genre than you actually do.

Finally got around to watching Desperate Man Blues. Great documentary about a guy that's been collecting blues/country/gospel records for the past fifty years and his passion for the stuff hasn't eased up in the slightest. It's almost worth it alone for a clip of Son House just beating the hell out of his guitar.

big blues fan, regardless of whehter it's acoustic or electric.
From Skip James, Robert Johnson, Blind WillieMcTell or Mississippi John Hurt to the "Kings" (BB, Albert, Fredie), Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf or Clapton. Keb Mo's debut is also very recommendable.

I enjoy a lot of the acoustic Delta style blues. I also like the electric blues style. It's actually a pretty diverse genre. Some of my favorites include Mississippi John Hurt, Lightnin Hopkins, Blind Boy Fuller, Charley Patton, Big Bill Broonzy, and Robert Johnson. There are many great electric players too. I like Muddy Waters, Albert King, BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Lurrie Bell, and Howlin Wolf.

I'm a musician and I use the pentatonic scale a tremendous amount in my music. I know a ton about extreme metal, and I can tell you that most of the time they do not use the pentatonic scale.

Amen, man. Robert Johnson was a fuckin' genius.

Also, I love blues rock. Colin James is probably very easily one of the better guitarists in that genre. There's also a fairly unknown band down in Louisiana called Santeria that just fucking ROCKS. You should all check them out.
