Mr. Robbie Krieger of the Doors
Mr Brent Hinds of the Mastodon
Not sure if anyone put this up earlier, but I love the tone Thom Yorke gets playing his SG's.
Good call, his use of the SG on in Rainbows was the reason I finally got round to buying one...
My top SG players:
Alex Rosamilia from The Gaslight Anthem. He plays a Jr, and the 1970. Both very cool.
Mike McCready from Pearl Jam also uses SG's quite a bit. He plays a little bit of everything.
Townshend has gotta be one of my favorites too.
I was checking out some Mick Taylor today and found some nice clips on you tube plus this pic.
Pete Townshend was my first guitar hero so he's waaay up there on my list. I believe he never sounded better than when he played a SG roaring through cranked Hiwatts.
Thanks for playing along to my revival of this fine thread, Thanks too to my friend Bettyboo who helped me find it.
Another of my faves........ Mr Allman and of course Mr Betts
In no particular order of preference:
Gary Clark Jr.
And probably quite a few other guys as well!
Lineboat, it looks like Mike Mccready is giving me the finger in your pic.
Lots I didnt know of, lot of players I know of but not that they were particularly SG players.
Ones I know as SG players that run far and deep for me are:
Eric Clapton - didn't he go all Stat / Fender by 1970 or so and definitely by Derek / Layla?
Pete Townsend - when did he switch to Fender?
And now realizing Mick Taylor was an SG player.
You on the leeest!
I always want to learn more of who is playing what guitar parts in bands like the Stones, etc. and on which type of guitar or pickup type and position, etc.
so many great SG guitarists out there. No way I could just pick one but I guess if I had to pick 3, they would be:
Pete, Eric, Angus. I could easily rattle off 20 that I really enjoy listening to though. Just for fun... I will add one SG player that I bet nobody else thinks off... hint... he played with Eric and his SG had really fat strings
ORF, did one of his buddy's fat stringers not have any frets?
Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups
Madonna plays SG.
Angus Young and Tony Iommi.
