zz top. if you want a song with a slide check out 'just got paid'. i found it easy to learn and it was the first thing i ever tried with a slide (apart from the solo, just improv your own).
to see him use the slide check out a live vid, its more noticeable than in the studio recording

Lynyrd Skynyrd, listen to songs like "That Smell" or "Working For The MCA", also give Robert Plants new album a shot.
