Does Dire Straits count? They're blues rock (among other genres).

"Sultans of Swing" is a good song.

Jules, I'm really not a huge fan of the Stones, but Billy definitely makes my very short list of all time favorite guitar players.

I'm an acoustic, Delta blues fan , so here's a few:

Lightnin Hopkins, Lonesome Dog Blues

http://youtu.be/Ln1QTf3mqSc

John Lee Hooker, Tupelo

http://youtu.be/77pmWCpMNkI

Muddy Waters, Champagne and Reefer

http://youtu.be/oHowqKYSXNI

Or , The Same Thing (live version at some Boy Scout thing, it's amazing).  His album Hard Again is a classic. 

Leadbelly, Where Did You Sleep Last Night?

http://youtu.be/PsfcUZBMSSg

Mississippi John Hurt, I Shall Not Be Moved

http://youtu.be/tLc8YeXP8FY

Damn near everything Son House recorded, but especially "Preaching the Blues" ("I wanna be a Baptist preacher, so I won't have to work....")

http://youtu.be/Fd-Zy1w-8Lk

Bukka White:

http://youtu.be/Pkhj9z14TBo

Anything Alan Lomax recorded, esp gems like Belton Sutherland:

http://youtu.be/W6jjNRUqPxg

And I recommend this album for any blues lover, a field recording of early blues tunes with some mandolin blues, classic 'hollers, and some real gems:

I told a woman to listen to this song once:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pYkayadazY


The woman?  A mistress of a musician friend of mine.  Too difficult to be his friend anymore, especially when I would sit at his dinner table with his wife and knew what was going on.  Bet she did too.

Let me tell you about the other woman:

She was oddly jealous of me.  The guy?  Would never think twice about him.  Married/taken = off limits.  Plus, even if he were single, no thank you.  I had to befriend her because SHE would be at shows, not the wife.  Ugh

Found out they were 'together' a good 7/8 years.  There was one moment when he would have left his wife (great guy!) and she oddly refused.  That door opened and closed and 8 years later...

It's Valentine's Day.  The mistress is having a nervous breakdown. The married guy?  Gloated to me that he had sex with both his mistress and his wife, same day.  I just can't be friends with someone like that.

The mistress?  Loved the song, never took the advice/message.
It's true you know.

Somehow I think slashing someone's tires is not an effective way of changing one's true motivations, ha.

Plus, it takes two.  Usually a vulnerable woman and a selfish man or switch those identities to whatever gender.

I mean, come on.

My Dad's first wife cheated on him.
He had a no tolerance policy.  Back in the day it wasn't 'the thing' to divorce.  He divorced her immediately and took the kid.

Buh Bye
