I'm gonna say George Lynch.

So weird to see George Lynch look like an investment broker. Especially after looking at how frizzed/teased out his hair was back then!

My vote is for Jake E. Lee--people forgot who he was after he left Ozzy, but he had some great albums when he was with Badlands.

You could say Michael Angelo from Nitro as well. He had chops, but that band's music was so pathetic that at times he sounded more like a computer's random tone generator than a guitarist (I think I stole that line from a Rip Magazine review of their 2nd album in fact!).

Paul Leary, Greg Ginn and Larry LaLonde are three guys that were overshadowed by their bandmates or the bands themselves.

Chris Poland and Ed Wynne are a couple of others that are amazing players!

Craig Chaquico, Jefferson Starship late 80s.....


Gary Richrath, REO (before Cronin bubble gummed the band completely)

Shawn Lane, RIP. Ever see anyone faster?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Skk9Q0Qd_k

Guys like Vai, Satriani, Eric Johnson, Eddie VH, and Vernon Reid would come to see him play.

In terms of a guy who's contributions far exceeded his public profile I'd have to go with Mick Ronson. That man made David Bowie a lot of money. He also Helped John Mellencamp make a lot of money too (jack and diane). He was the master of the catchy hook.

Mick Ronson was a great guitarist.

Reminds me that both Robin Trower and Peter Frampton were also seriously overlooked by my (younger) generation when metal was at it's zenith in the 80s.

How about Mick Taylor. When he joined the Stones, they totally transformed and penned a grip of great songs.

Yea the 'stones were really good at tapping talent like that. They picked Graham Parsons brains and got a few hit songs out of the deal, all he got was a chance to live in the band house and do junk with Keith. Pretty good bargain for the band, not so much for graham.

I found a clip of Paul Leary, dude its about as anti guitar as it gets, but he plays some of the oddest, quirkiest, uncomfortable sounding leads I have ever heard but damn if they dont work, you can tell in parts dude can shred.

I've seen a lot of the names I was going to mention, except for Vito Bratta and Paul Gilbert. Paul got a lot of money on that stupid "To Be With You" Mr. Big song, but he was a guitar god in the making long before that.

Nuno Bettencourt is right up there. For anybody who was into Extreme before "More Than Words" hit, then you know Nuno was the man. He was vastly underrated. His first solo album was all around excellent. He is awesome. I saw him live on one of my first dates with my wife, and he beat the shiz out of a guitar. I thought his hands would catch on fire. Very very excellent player.

But I'm going to throw out two names, and don't laugh... because I'm dead serious. Roy Clark and Wayne Newton. They both were amazing when I saw them at some random family 4th of July show. Roy Clark was seriously fast and an excellent technical player. Wayne Newton blew me away. I didn't even know he played the guitar, and he was flying man. I was like "Danke Schon Wayne... what the hell?"

I also want to add Danny Gatton. He was a master, and his demons took him much too soon.

I'm glad somebody put up that REO Speedwagon dude. I was thinking of him before I even opened this. He was dang good.

There are a few more random guys that nobody has ever heard of that are excellent. Of course everybody knows guys like Yngwie and the like from the "hair days". But they never quite made it with any mainstream success because they were technically good, but just didn't create music people liked. Eric Johnson was a real exception, and he is amazing. Cliffs of Dover is still one of my favorite guitar sounds and songs ever.

And I agree fully on George Lynch. Saw him live in his heyday due to my brothers being big fans of his. One had a George Lynch guitar (it might have been a Charvel, but it looked like a Jackson? Crackly lightning kind of neon finish with black). That was a kickass guitar. I LOVED playing it. Sooooo smooth, and the action was perfect. I have a strat and a les paul, and they are great guitars no doubt, but that Lynch model was my favorite guitar I've ever played. Seeing him live was a real revelation. A super super talented guy and seemed like a genuine musician and not some bozo that was stoned out of his mind and just doing the tongue wiggle at girls lifting up their tops in the crowd. He was very cool and put on a great show. I think there must have been 10,000+ there and he blew the doors off of the place. They were opening for somebody (Lynch Mob). I can't even remember who... maybe Kiss? I saw them though and liked it. The guy who played for Slaughter was surprisingly talented as well. Really a good musician. When the singer went off stage (Mark Slaughter?) the guitar player took over and pointed at everybody and then jumped up and when he landed the whole band had busted in "Back in Black". It was actually awesome, because I thought they were just posers, and they ripped it up on an instrumental version of it. The singer runs back out, and they just keep going with it... so he kind of dances around... and then looks at the guys like he wants them to stop and rip into another tune, and they just kept on going, so he left again. It was quite comical. I don't know if they planned it, or if they were just sick of his whiny singing and decided they were going to play some actual rock and roll that night.

Good memories.

Fixed it for you. The added part is what makes that addition surprising and accurate all at the same time. Dude is VERY good.

How about Doug Aldrich?

Of Dio and Whitesnake, he absolutely shreds....go to the 39:50 mark just to see his solo, Also the monster Tommy Aldridge on drums. Come to think of it, if you watch the video, Reb Beach is the other player and he ain't no slouch. Go to 34:00 to listen to Judgement Day,,awesome.

I have been around musicians much of my life the best guitarist I have seen that was truly amazing was Prince. I saw him the first time in the late '70s. He is incredible and does not get nearly the credit he deserves. On his first album he played all the instruments and vocals.

Another that fails to get a lot of credit is Leslie West of Mountain.

don't know how you did it, but you just found the evolution of my screen name here. I must have caught him on his next stop or two. That was a Taylor guitar thingie. I saw him at Mojo Music in Bellingham doing the same stuff. I had just purchased my Taylor maybe six months before and was hanging around the store quite a bit when he came to town. I went to check him out with my roommate and halfway through the performance my bro who had been playing for decades, turned to me and said...." F*%K I have no chops."

As for the OP....I have to go hometown and say Degarmo/Wilton. KK/Tipton. Murray/Smith. The ryche's dual attack was mighty and should go down one of the best ever.

Great call.

As a guitarist, Prince is not necessarily better than the top tier guys, but below that, he's better than most.

Let alone how good of a bassist, singer, keyboardist, and drummer he is.
