List Of Blues Rock Performers

Blues rock is a hybrid musical genre which developed in the 1960s, which combines elements of blues music—twelve-bar blues, extended boogie jams and a heavy, riff-oriented sound and feel—with the loud, overdriven electric guitar-driven sound of rock and roll. Blues rock bands often emphasize lead guitar solos and blues-style improvisation.

Groups that incorporate substantial blues rock elements into their music often blend the style with other related rock or blues styles. In the late 1960s, bands often blended blues rock with psychedelic rock and acid rock (e.g., Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan). In the 1970s and 1980s a number of bands mixed in other elements, such as Southern rock (e.g., The Allman Brothers Band and then Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Texas blues (e.g., Stevie Ray Vaughan). In the late 1980s, several groups blended blues rock with hard rock and the then-popular heavy metal style of Glam metal (e.g., the English band Whitesnake). In the 2000s, musicians introduced new elements to blues rock, such as the alternative rock and punk blues infusions of The White Stripes.

Notable blues rock-oriented groups, listed according to the decade when they began incorporating a blues rock style, include:

    Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to- date scripts for actors on the tourists’ stage.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    ... we performers are monsters. We are a totally different, far-out race of people. I totally and completely admit, with no qualms at all, my egomania, my selfishness, coupled with a really magnificent voice.
    Leontyne Price (b. 1927)

    I know it’s only rock ‘n’ roll but I like it.
