    Love the Girls Gone Wild album. Jimmy Vaughn's playing on that album is so cool.

    Steve Winwood could sing the Blues. He is one of my all time favorite musicians. Spence Davis, Blind faith, Traffic, And I loved when he played keyboards with Jimi Hendrix on "Voodoo Chile".

    Has anyone even mentioned Stevie Ray Vaughn? he could sing the blues, and he was even able to CHANNEL Jimi Hendrix.

    British dudes turned blues music into the real thing. They can't very well sound like 75 yr old black dudes from Mississippi, can they? And they didn't need to.

    Bruce Willis is cool as hell. I like that guy. Only thing is, I can't see or or hear of him without recalling that gimp scene!

    Lefty, he can't sing the blues, all night long like he used to.
    The dust that Pancho bit down South, ended up in Lefty's mouth.

    I think Steve Winwood could have sung the blues. I can't pinpoint any particular song. But I think he would have been a great blues singer if so inclined. He was a very good rocker.

    I like the blues music. There are plenty of people who can sing and play the blues; all those listed in this thread I agree with. I also want to list Lloyd George and Little Feat. Add to that Janis Joplin.

    SRV was mentioned in the first few posts of the thread but no media. I actually like these guys version of pride and joy better.. with a toy Cars guitar no less.
