    I'm surprised Navarro hasn't been mentioned.

    Dave Navarro - Jane's Addiction (and Red Hot Chili Peppers for a time)
    Trent Reznor - NIN (hey, he does play guitar)
    Wes Borland - Limp Bizkit (although I don't like the band, he's still amazing)
    Tom Morello - Audioslave
    John Frusciante - RHCP
