Are there any, i mean besides Frank Zappa? Swinging is generally a quality that is mostly found in improvisation, and from what i can tell rock musicians don't like to improvise a whole lot, and those who do really cannot swing all that well or a focusing on things that run counter to the principle of improvisation as can be found in jazz. The only one i discovered so far Jimi Hendrix, mainly in his live recordings, but admittedly, my experience with rock music is not very extensive. Zappa himself is a recent discovery (or rediscovery rather. I heard him before, but only recently "got" it, so to speak) for me, so there might be many other artists like him i'm unaware of.

Where you been livin' Reseda, or Cuba? Welcome to the 1940s. The term 'swing' particularly within the realm of rock is about as common as hens teeth.
