    If you aren't particularly in love with the bluesy style SRV uses then I could see others be your favorite . I think the two I mentioned may be better technically , of course everything is subjective.

    SRV is certainly at the top.
    Definitely Billy Gibbons.

    Edgar Winter was born in Beaumont if I'm not mistaken.
