Well said sir. I mean there's always going to be the formulaic immitators out there regardless what the genre, but when I look at what innovators like ZZ Top, Hendrix, Trower, Zep, the Stones and coutless others have done to spice up and often turn on its head the twelve bar format, I'm just amazed and inspired. I love the mixture of raw emotion with tasty grooves, emotive lyrics you can hear, choppy rhythms and guitar solos that moan, scream and breathe. Most of the examples I'm very familiar with (big music collection) but will be looking to score some Brian Jonestown Massacre and maybe some Graveyard next time I visit the local music store (old school - no downloading for me). My turn: Gasman reminded me of these guys with BJM: [YOUTUBE]T_-6yuBkyyY[/YOUTUBE] Chris Goss is probably best known for his work producing bands like Queens of the Stoneage but I preferred his own stuff with these guys: [YOUTUBE]1BEM30F3fyg[/YOUTUBE]
I like the thread, but I kind of disagree with the premise. I'm not sure heavy/blues rock is any more or less 'stagnant and cliched' than metal, gypsy jazz, folk, country, rock and roll, pop, rap, reggae or any other genre.

Share some heavy blues and heavy blues rock that turns you on, and proves that these types of music haven't become stagnant and cliched.

That's a great DVD, and it's interesting to hear how his style has changed over the years. Check out "Dust Bowl" or "Ballad of John Henry" - my two favorite of his albums. he former is pretty eclectic, spanning rock, blues and country; the latter is his most 'rock' album, but still very bluesy. I should amend my previous comment to say that I totally get being burned out on Zeppelin & SRV. I go through a phase about once or twice a year where I'll listen to them a lot for a few days then that's it for a while. That doesn't mean I don't think they're both still great, but yeah, a little burned out. Hendrix... somehow I just never got burned out. I was listening to Spanish Castle Magic the other day and heard him say "I can't really sing this song" about 2:40 right before the outtro solo (in the studio version) - I'd never heard that before. So funny. He just kind of says it casually, but he's not far off mic, once you notice it, it's very obvious. Amazing that I can listen to that song in 2012 - 45 year old and I've heard it 1000 times - and still hear new things. That's why I love Jimi.
Thanks for that song,I've never heard of it.I just got bonamassa live at rockpalast dvd and he just kills it Gary

His performance of that song on Eric Clapton's Crossroads Festival 2010 DVD is wonderfully hypnotic: [video=youtube;9Si3_TSw2wQ]http://www.youtube.com/

Cool stuff... I consider myself a fan of the genre, but there are lots of bands here I hadn't heard before. Keep 'em coming!
