If you are going to assemble a list of the top 50 as voted by this Forum, then I wont limit myself to 5, since the most repeated names will end up in the top5 anyway. I cant pick my personal top 5 because I like them all, so in no particular order:
Kirby Kelly (Bugs henderson and the Shuffle Kings)
By the way, Robert Randolph is a pedal steel player- does he belong on this list? Then you could add guys like Speedy West too.
Then there are all the great 1st and 2nd generation players- Robert Johnson, Son House, Tampa Red, Elmore James, Muddy, Howlin Wolf but honestly, I don't really listen to them much- I prefer the third generation electric players

Tommy Malone (Subdudes)

Suggestion- rather than 'the Best' or 'the Greatest' how about: 50 suggestions for required listening'
More sliders of note
George Rossington (Lynyrd Skynyrd *I think he played the slide parts)
Rick Vito (Huge discography- best known for work with Bob Segar- Like a Rock)
Dave Hole (I cant see if he made the list)
George Thorogood (reluctant late afterthought)
I'll think of more in the middle of the night

I just saw Bob Brozman live at the BB King Club NYC on a bill with Sonny Landreth and the Campbell Brothers. Quite a slidefest.
Brozman in a very strong solo artist. Different than anything I've ever seen.
My pal Kirby Kelly from Texas is another guy you certainly want to check out as a solo artist. In the summer months he sometimes gets booked as an opening act at festivals, usually in the Southwest.
As sliders go for the list here- I would add
Danny Gatton since he could do stuff with a Bud bottle that few could do with a bottleneck.
Wally Gator in Houston is another one with that unique ability.

An actual conversation that went into two pages.
Might as well hi-jack the thread just to keep the conversation going.
So what do you you guys play- solo, or in bands, acoustic or electric? Traditional or modern? Instruments?
Anyone else is free to keep posting slide players of note- just killing time here and bumping the thread.

more sliders to consider...frank hutchinson, blind willie mctell, sylvester weaver, tampa red, etc, etc,,,one could just go on and on...
