I'd like to add:

-Bill Janovitch (Buffalo Tom)
-Gary Louris (The Jayhawks)
-Kurt Cobain did a lot with what he knew...
I was thinking of you as I posted my list (I'd read the whole thread beforehand) and it made me wonder - what do you have against old threads? huh? I know what you posted last summer!
+1 to that, I was contemplating adding him & figured my list was far too long anyway.
1) Will Sergeant of Echo and the Bunnymen - so underated ( listen to his solo album under the name Glide ).
2) Lloyd Cole ( was awsome with the Commotions and good solo stuff also ).
Paul leary -butthole surfers
Mac McCaughan - Superchunk
Sooyoung Park - Seam
I googled Sooyoung and it turns out he uses 52 reissue.
Their bass player was a big influence on me as well. And Will played a Tele.
In addition to Glide, he also recorded an interesting album of experimental instrumental stuff called Themes For 'Grind' which was recorded as a "soundtrack" even though no such movie existed.
Curt Kirkwood does it all. The Meat Puppets are a huge influence of mine. If you are having a bad day, get his acoustic flavored solo album, "Snow". I guarentee it will lift your spirits.
A few who's playing I really like and find inspiring...
John Squire (Stone Roses)
Graham Coxon (Blur)
Steve Malkmus (Pavement)
Johnny Marr (various..)
Guy Picciotto and Ian Mackaye (Fugazi)
D Boon (Minutemen)
Andy Gill (Gang of Four)
James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers)
I don't have any personal objections to people doing it - but it is considered bad etiquette on most forums (not just this one), to drag old threads back from the abyss.
Sorry, felt it wasn't right to have mentioned Rivers Cuomo way back without giving a mention of Brian Bell as well.
Ha, that rhymed!
