    Chris Whitley for alt blues & a variety of other genres... He never really settled on a musical style (or record label, for that matter), but did some fantastic work. He also played backing tracks for a few dozen hits - usually on his Style O resonator.

    Start with Living With the Law, but do not expect him to stay in that vein.

    Passed way too young from lung cancer (going through a pack a gig might have had something to do with that).

    Really cool thread. A lot of names already mentioned that I was thinking of. Here is who I thought of...

    Rocky George (Suicidal Tendencies)
    Chris Oliva (Savatage)
    Andy LaRoque (King Diamond/Death)
    Chuck Schuldiner (Death/Control Denied)
    James Murphy (Death/Obituary/Testament/Solo Artist)-His Convergence and Feeding the Machine albums are awesome!
    Frank Hannon (Tesla)
    Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth) His rhythm playing is tight and precise it's as good as Hetfield's imho.
