I love Slade.  That would be a musical group.  Anyone else like blues?

Blues? Slade were a '70s glam rock group.

And I hear Noddy Holder singing merry christmas one more time I'll throw up...

Ok fine, you've got me looking for true blues.  Not a lot.  Janis Joplin?

True Blues. Erm, BB King? Muddy Waters? Eric Clapton? Hell, even some of The Doors stuff was just Blues really. A lot of 'modern' musical styles are either Blues or Jazz based, except Pop Music, which is generally vacuous, homogenised crap.

Much of Led Zeppelin's early work,up to Runes, was Blues based. Still one of the best Rock bands of all time, imo.

I like Slade too, just keep your hands off my power supply.

The greatest blues guitarist to ever pick up a guitar/draw breath... two words.  Roy Buchanan

His vocals weren't the strongest, but he could make a guitar talk... bark like a dog... meow like a cat.  Yup, he could melt the music right into your mouth...

I saw him twice in concert, and he's the most awe inspiring, technically awesome guitarist I have ever seen... and yes, I have seen Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Robin Trower and Hendrix live in concert

Yep, and the best concert I went was Roy Buchanan at Her Majesty's Theatre in Brisbane.  Part way in I called out "Hey Joe"... he looked straight at me, pointed a finger at me and said; "It's yours"   I have a recording of that concert still today... a local radio station broadcast it and a friend recorded it for me while I was there.

I dunno about that. I bought a tour catalogue when he toured here the first time, in which it said he bought it second-hand from a pawn shop, as I recall, in Chicago.  Sadly, I no longer have that souvenir... some low-life mongrel piece of sh!te stole it when I was in hospital one time.
