    Jeff Buckley, Kelly Jones from Stereophonics, and actually seeing Chris Cornell playing one on SNL back in the 90's might've been the first time I really wanted a Tele. I thought he looked so cool with it! (though I don't listen to a lot of Soundgarden) There are tons of bands I listen to now that use them, most notably Aereogramme/The Unwinding Hours from Scotland.

    Frisell, his lyricism and sense of space changed my playing for the better and softened my taste in music a little so that I can listen to and really appreciate a tender melody without feeling like a sissy. I like other tele players, pretty much all the ones listed in this thread, but Frisell carved out this peculiar little island for himself that my ears really dig on.

    spoiler alert!!!..

    Change my "life"? a guitar player?.... I doubt it..... whatever they played....;)

    I've always just listened to/enjoyed music... mostly not caring two hoots who they were or what they played..... or wanting their gear...

    if I'd have sat around trying to be one of the hundreds of guitar players I've heard... I wouldn't have got out and about world wide and did the things in life that I did....;)

    now I'm happy to sit back and play my guitars... like Me...;)... how dull is that?... :)

    In order best I recall.

    James Burton, behind Ricky Nelson on TV and records.
    Hello Mary Lou kaplunk a plunk... yea.


    Waylon.. behind nobody, saw him live first time in '64 at JD's.
    Nobody ever did it like Waylon

    This and a 1/2 pint of Jack and you're good to go.

    Buck and Don... same way about the same time.
    Spent several years ignoring rock and enjoying twang:)

    Finally>
    Steven Stills and the evolution to CSN&Y by 1970.
    and then the dawn breaks
    Clarence White and all that entails, followed until I realized.. same GREAt player in several bands... duh? IR a slow learner.

    Late bloomer for me and briefly, Danny Gatton and then back one step earlier to Roy

    Roy kinda' ends it... I mean where is there better? before or after. Nowhere.

    But first it was The King's Lead Man - Mr. Burton - and his paisley Teles....then the Boss. Liking the Tele has opened my ears to others - like Brad Paisley and Keith Urban - both of those guys have chops (IMHO).
