Chris Cheney is the lead guitarist and singer with Australian punk rock band The Living End.

He not only displays a great deal of consistent technical proficiency with his guitar playing, but a great creativity in both his writing of music and lyrics (Cheney is the band's main songwriter).

For an example of Cheney's excellent playing, I highly recommend that you check out the song 'Into The Red' from The Living End's album 'State of Emergency'.

He uses Gretsch White Falcon guitars, and Fender is currently producing a Chris Cheney Signature Series Gretsch Guitar (6126CC).

The embedded video is a peformance of 'What's On Your Radio', one of The Living End's singles from 'State of Emergency'. Do a bit of searching through YouTube and you can find plenty more where that came from.
