    Here is a list of guitar players that I always thought were good, but were probably overlooked because of the bands they were with . For some, I really dug the rhythm playing. And for others,just thier unique approach or their tone. But all of them made me want to play guitar. You may laugh at some, but remember the subject. I'm very interested in your opinions on my choices and the one's you come up with.
    1. Elliott Easton(Cars)
    2. Neil Geraldo(Pat Benatar)
    3. Neal Schon(Journey)
    4. Billy Gibbons(ZZtop)
    5. Steve Stevens(Billy Idol)
    6. Richie Sambora(Bon Jovi)
    7. Prince
    8. Keith Scott(Bryan Adams)
    9. Paul Dean(Loverboy)
    10. Lindsey Buckingham(Fleetwood Mac)
    Sorry it's a bit retro, but I was a child of the eighties.

    On the main discussion page, where everyone was asked to rate guitarists, many of the ones you mentioned made my list, specifically:

    Lindsey Buckingham, Richie Sambora, Paul Dean, and Neal Schon. I thought of Prince, but some people just don't like him.

    Good choices overall.

    I would add the guitarist who played for Jim Croce (sorry, I don't know his name), the Edge (U2), Vito Bratta (White Lion) and Andy Summers (The Police).

    Ross Childress of Collective Soul is an awesome guitarist that I think is overlooked.Also Chris Duarte if your into blues guitar.

    As a guitar player, I can appreciate all styles of guitar playing. The guitar player for Jim Croce was an interesting and very cool coice. Jim Croce was an excellent player in his own right. I always thought that Vito Bratta's solo for "Wait" was brilliant, but I'm afraid I don't know his other work because the lead singer for that band turned me off, so I've probably don't know half of what he can do. As for Collective Soul,I love the three-guitar attack that they have.Triple threat.

    cool responses, definately agree with Joe Walsh and Keith Scott. Richie Sambora is also WAY underrated.

    Here's a guy that no one ever mentions. Mick Ronson of David Bowie fame. Not fast or flashy but the backbone of early Bowie and a great player. As far as blues players go, the most underrated is Albert King. He was a HUGE influence on Stevie Ray Vaughn and blues in general but gets overlooked.
