Early chicago blues musicians

I'm looking for some good blues artists from the early-mid 1900's, please post up if you know of any.

Here ya go. The jackpot. I love Blues, especially Chicago Blues. I was in Chicago about 2 years ago during the World Blues Festival. I think they had about 4 venues going at once in Grant Park. I got to shooting the breeze with the guy in the Gibson guitars booth, about deer hunting, and he gave me a free Gibson "Playing the Blues" T-shirt. Saturday night a friend and I found Buddy Guy's Legends bar. Smoked cigars and drank beer til 3 in the morning. If you got too close to the bathroom you could smell the smoke from them funny cigarettes drifting out. Folks would walk up to the stage with a shot for the singer, and he'd drink it and play on. There was this guy down front who would stick both arms in the air and rock to the music, but his left arm was amputated at the elbow, so he had an arm and a half in the air, rocking to the music! Good thing my friend knew the way back to the hotel.

Robert Johnson. Wrote classics 'Travelin' Riverside Blues', Sweet Home Chicago (even though he is from Mississippi). Ironically, he was in Chicago for a very short period of time. He was on the lamb from MS law enforcement with a buddy. Went to Chicago, changed his style a bit to make cash. Always the ladies man, it eventually did him in, dying from pneumonia while his body was weakened from the effects of a poisoning, put in a drink by a jealous husband. And the music's pretty dark and bluesy. And while Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain managed to die at 27, he bettered them, dying at 26. They have a couple CD's of him out
