In my case it's more Stephen Stills being represented twice, but I definitely like both. In fact Neil and Crazy Horse just barely missed the list.

True, I just like the fact that he was in 2 of SD's bands since I'm a huge fanboy. Good catch though.

I think Frampton is the only big one that used it regularly. For most of the others, it was either a one-time thing or just a dumb gimmick.

Joe Walsh used it quite a bit as well, in fact the top 3 of my list are the only ones i actually like how they used it the other two did as you say use it as a dumb gimmick.

Mathias Jabs used it on The Zoo, which I would venture to say is a better song than "baby I Love Your Way"

You're right, Joker, I forgot about that and I agree 'The Zoo' is better and Joe Perry used one on 'Sweet Emotion'.

I like the way Wrathchild America/Souls At Zero used the talkbox. It was featured prominently on "Desert Grins" and "Never".

Johnny Winter for sure. Don't forget SRV, Joe Bonamassa, Paul Kossoff, Peter Green, John Mayer, Billy Gibbons, Alvin Lee, Paul Butterfield...to name a few.

To me "blues" and "blues rock" are different categories.

Personally I can't stand SRV at all. Alvin Lee is a good one, and I guess Paul Butterfield too. All those others are pretty firmly blues-rock though, which doesn't really count.

I wouldn't say that...sometimes it's hard to differentiate.

I'd say that Peter Green is definitely a blues guitarist, SRV was a blues guitarist AND a blues rock guitarist, Johnny Winter I'm not really sure about. Billy Gibbons I would classify as blues rock.

Picking 5 is going to be a bitch, but I'm not really as familiar with the white guitarists, most of my blues listening dates from the 50s and 60s.

I've only delved into blues rock guitarists, like Rory Gallagher and Gary Moore. Blues (and jazz to an extent) seems like a genre that is very difficult to "figure out", because there is so much output to dig through.
