    Gerry Leonard played a 3-pickup Custom on Bowie's "A Reality Tour". Brilliant.

    Johnny Marr played an SG with The Healers. Boomslang is a great album.

    But my favorites remain Kath and Townsend.

    Paul Weller was a Rickenbacker 330 man in his days fronting the Jam, but he did use an SG for "Start."

    Woodstock era Pete Townshend, Angus Young, Robbie Krieger, Frank Zappa & Iommi are the Dean's List of the SG School of Rock.

    For some reason, I never think "SG" for Terry Kath, I always think tele. Really love all the Chicago stuff before he died. Not into Chicago at all without Terry.

    First SG player that comes to mind for me is Derek Trucks.

    I wasn't trying to criticize, but Terry was the inspiration for this thread. I guess I've not seen any footage of him with a tele, maybe I'm confused.

    Duane Allman played the Statesboro Blues solo on an SG, didn't he...?

    Sadler Vaden did some very nice work playing a SG during his time with drivin n cryin. I think most of their live stuff around 2011-2013 should have him playing on it. I haven't kept up with him since he left dnc.
