The whole punk scene has produced a vast number of technically accomplished bands and players.
Listen to 'Fall in Love ' early Vibrators with John Ellis
Tracks by 'Television' with Tom Verlaine and Richard LLoyd
or songs by 'The Living End' with guitarist Chris Cheney.
'Under the Floor Again' by the damned with Captain Sensible.
stuff by the LA band called 'X' with guitarist Billy Zoom who incidentally had also played with Gene Vincent.
All this stuff is out there on YouTube.
You could probably include 'Wilko Johnson' with his very unique lead and rythmn style of using his knuckles and thumb.

I have been playing a number of years on and off and to tell the truth if I could play as well as any of the above I would be very happy indeed.

cheers Phil

And don't forget East Bay Ray (Dead Kennedys), Greg Genn (Black Flag) or Pat Smear (Germ, ..., Foo Fighters)!
