I hope that all the greedy bastards in the world
Come back as lobsters.
You know that life at the bottom of the food chain
Suits them well.
I think that all of the evil people of the world
Come back as horseflies,
They want one last bite before they're sent to hell.

Right off the bat the first two that came to my mind were Stevie Ray Vaughan and John Nitzinger.

Thought some folks here might find this photo interesting:


Image
Jimmy Page sitting in with Stephen Stills and Graham Nash following a 1974 gig in London where CSN & Y opened for Joni Mitchell. Also present (though not pictured) are Neil Young and John Bonham. Bringing this full circle, Zeppelin have often cited John and CSN with being a big influence on their largely acoustic third album.
