    I'm a big fan of blues music, especially the classic Chicago Blues of the 1950's and 60's. Muddy Waters is my all-time favorite blues musician, and probably my favorite in ANY music genre. I also really like the music of Howlin' Wolf and Little Walter. I like a lot of the pre-World War Two acoustic country blues as well. Robert Johnson and Skip James are my favorite pre-War blues musicians.

    I love Robin Trower's Bridge Of Sighs album/cd. I'll have to check out some of his newer stuff.

    Robin Trower's music is obviously not pure blues, but a lot of it is blues-based. I'd call it blues rock or rock blues. The man does have a FEEL for the blues.

    I'll take the blame.
    I usually don't waste much time squabbling over musical genre definitions.
    Everybody knows the history.

    As for Trower, imo he took the blues into sort of where Clapton and Hendrix left off
    with it. But really everything from country to R&B to shred metal - all has some blues and jazz roots in it.
