Gary Rossington of Lynyrd Skynyrd Selects his Top 11 Blues Artists

Over on Music Radar, Gary Rossington, one of the founders of Southern-Rock band Lynyrd  Syrnyrd, and the only original member still in the band, shared his thoughts on who are his top 11 blues artists.

I consider he put a nice balance between  British and Blues-Rock artists with the "originators", it's a good list (I would not have included Ray Charles, but I digress)

The list is below, and go to the article here for a more in-depth analysis by his own words for each blues musician:

1. Duane Allman
2. Paul Butterfield 
3. Ray Charles
4. Eric Clapton
5. Buddy Guy
6. Robert Johnson
7. Albert King
8. BB King
9. John Mayall
10. Keb Mo
11. Muddy Waters
