Man, this is a tough question, since I like so many different players and also because each player sounds so different. For example, I like S.R.V. and I also like Gary Moore, but they both sound very different from each other. The same could be said about Freddie King and Eric Clapton, two more of my favorites. The only way of narrowing it down would be to ask who is the best all around player, and for that I tend to think S.R.V. but no doubt many would disagree.

Well, what a question!!!
As it's completely subjective not everyone will come up with the same answer, nor arrive at their answer the same way.
For me, I have to look at it from the point of view of a Historian and travel back to the beginnings. I won't call it the 'birth' of the Blues as the roots of the Blues can be quite easily traced to West Africa where the similarities, even today, are so obvious that they cannot be denied.
Listen to the likes of Ali Farka Toure, Tinawriwen or Amadou and Mariam and you'll hear what I mean.
So let's come forward to what we all know and appreciate as the 'Blues', there is only really one choice here, without whom modern Blues Music would not exist, wouldn't have developed the way it did, nor would it have spawned the mastery of Robben Ford, Joe Bonamassa, SRV, etc.
I am of course talking about:-

Well, I don't think there's the BEST blues guitar player. There is your FAVORITE one. Well, my favorite of all times I'd choose SRV. But nowadays it's Joe Bonamassa and Philip Sayce.

This guy said If Eric Clapton graduated blues school with an A+
Then he got through with a C- George Thorogood.
Although he blues rock I guess. I loved his music before I was into guitar.

Of course add Pappo.
The problem with lists is that everybody has a favorite that's not on there. And you inevitably forget one of your own faves, for example - the great Rory Gallagher! I can't believe I didn't include him. Thanks for reminding me Bossie!
