    I first heard/saw all three (not together) in the early 70s when I first started playing guitar.
    Naturally I decided "that's how I want to play."

    Since I made this thread over 2 years ago, I’ve had a lot of time to think;)

    My consistent favorites are:

    Eric Clapton
    BB King
    Jimi Hendrix

    I mostly play blues these days, sometimes I wander but I always come back to em!

    It depends on who I last heard, or saw. It changes a lot because there are just so many greats! My biggest influence/inspiration though was Terry Kath.
