Yes, SRV was/is supposed to be on there.  I went back and added him to the list!  Enjoy!

Buddy Guy!

I must have worn the paint off my CD, "Damn Right I Got The Blues"... and I've seen him a couple of times in small clubs in Baton Rouge:






Jonny Lang doesn't do much for me... and although he's a rock guitarist, I did like Gary Moore's stuff:



I love SRV as well...

Oooh, forgot Robert Cray!

One of my favorite songs (with the Memphis horns!):



And some good old country blues:



And how it sounded originally on Paycheck's album:
