Without the Blues, there’d be no rock n’ roll as we know it. Had Robert Johnson not sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads, we might never have heard the amazing blues artists of the 20th Century, nor the iconic rock n’ roll artists they inspired and influenced. As we get all excited about the Bluesfest over this Easter Weekend, we count down our favourite Blues artists. Some of these choices might offend the sensibilities of Blues purists, but hey, we like what we like!
