cited as a huge influence by such noted guitarists as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Duane Allman, and Jeff Beck ~ Mack was inducted into the International Guitar Hall of Fame in 2001. Gibson Guitar Corporation issued a limited-run "Lonnie Mack Signature Edition" of Lonnie Mack's iconic 1958 "Flying V" guitar, which in 2011 was judged among the world's 150 most elite guitars. Mack was also the recipient of numerous other honours.

Blues rather than rock'n'roll but one of the blues harp greats.

James Cotton, July 1, 1935 – March 16, 2017.

IIRC, James was once Muddy Waters' harmonica player.

I was fortunate enough to see Cotton open the show for John Mayall at a converted film theatre in Royal Oak, Michigan back in the mid-1980s.
Left quite an impression on me as a then-aspiring blues harp player.
