The Best Blues Artists of All Time

I love blues. I respect the history, but think that a lot of the legends are very over rated. There are many great musicians out there that aren't given a fair chance, while blues fans obsess over Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, etc. This is guitar-heavy approach doesn't count influence at all, strictly the career output of good music.
