    Gary Moore, is by far the best blues guitarist!

    Gary Moore in a dual with B.B. King singing "The Thrill is Gone" http://youtube.com/watch?v=lqAuuIDU2sw

    Another classic is "Messiah will come", an instrumental - http://youtube.com/watch?v=lWp-Mazmf88

    In regard to blues pianists, Jerry Lee Lewis comes to mind, although it's true that he [Lewis] was really influenced by - and owes a lot to - the Afro-American pianists in the "honky-tonk" style. I'm ashamed to say that, off the top of my head, I can't name one single pianist in the "honky-tonk" style. Maybe someone can recommend some good blues/honky-tonk pianists.

    Somehow, I have the names Otis Span and "Pinetop" Williams in mind. Are they pianists, or do they play another instrument? Or are they vocalists?

    In regard to blues artists, I forgot to mention "Big Momma" Thorton; Blind Willie McTell; the duo Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee; and David Bromberg. Does anyone know if Bromberg is still alive? Is he still touring/doing concerts? Many years ago, you could see him live in Boston. Is that still the case? Somewhere in storgage, I have a vinyl albumn on which Bromberg does a great rendition of the song, "Delia." There are many versions of this song; it's a classic "jailhouse"song. Bromberg does a very beautiful and haunting rendition of this song.
