View Full Version : Best Blues singer?

Too many options to turn this into a poll. So who is your favourite Blues singer?

I'm going to vote for Howlin' Wolf. I know his voice is very strange and a bit grating, but I think he's perfect for the Blues. Lots of raw emotion, and very direct. He can really sing, too, despite the raw voice.
