One band for you: ZZ Top.

Billy Gibbons is a master of good pinch harmonic use.

listen to some van halen. i know there not the bluesiest but it helps. check out there song mean street, which has a fair amount of them. but if you want to stick solely to blues go with gibbons!

for good pinch harmonics i just kept trying my thumb it different positions on the pick till i got it, i guess theres no specific way to get it just keep practicing it and you will perfect it trying turning the distortion up that usually makes them a bit more noticeable, check out zakk wylde he uses pinch harmonics in most of his BLS songs

One part of a pinch harmonic that has not been said is the "hot spot". Take your left hand and slide it along the string near where you pick, keep doing this until you find a spot that sounds a strong harmonic, this will be a good place to hit a pinch.

All aspects of technique were covered by the videos I posted.

Thumb yes but you should also be able to do them with upstrokes. I can do them just as easy with the tip of my finger as i can with my thumb. I use the the thumb for the down stoke and the finger tip for the upstroke. If you can only do them on downstrokes you are limiting your possiblities.
