Thread Name: Who is your favorite blues artist?
Subject: RE: Who is your favorite blues artist?
So many great ones, and I love most all of them, but if I had to pick one, it would probably have to be Patton. What an innovative, brilliant mind. What a voice.

I also love Mississippi John Hurt, though I guess he was more of a songster than a bluesman (though that element was always present). I love his gentleness and that beautiful, beautiful guitar style.

I base my life on the teachings of these two masters. Now excuse me while I go murder someone in the flood.
