    That'd be great. Like I said, I don't "name recognize" these guys but I may very well know their bands or songs. Anyway, here are the mystery men to me:

    Robert Fripp
    Frank Hannon
    Eddie Ojeda
    Akira Takasaki
    Chris Holmes
    Mark Kendall
    Jason Becker (DLR?)

    I know you said no complaints about missing guitarists, but you’ve got every major guitarist Ozzy has played with except the very best one...

    This guy kicks! Really a talented axe man. From their 4th album released in 1984, I picked the same tune with 02 versions:

    The original one, in Japanese:



    The English version:



    They had a great drummer, Munetaga Higuchi. Unfortunately, cancer beat him in 2008. The guy was like 48, 49 years old.

    Ah! Thank you! I think the reality is that with many bands I enjoy, I don't know many of the band members besides the lead singer. Even, say, Y&T which is one of my all time favorites. I only know Meniketti...

    King Crimson - heard of them but can't name a single song
    Tesla - Very familiar
    Twisted Sister - Very familiar
    Loudness - Very familiar
    Wasp - I like their cover songs more than their originals... They do some great covers.
    Great White - Very familiar
    Cacophony - Never heard of 'em.

    Anyway this helps! Doesn't change my votes though...

    King Crimson's most well known song is 1969's "21st Century Schizoid Man", from their debut album, "In The Court of the Crimson King". That album is a masterpiece, so I highly suggest listening to that at some point.

    Cacophony was a band featuring Jason Becker (David Lee Roth's guitarist on "Your Filthy Little Mouth"), Marty Friedman (Megadeth) & Deen Castronovo (Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, Bad English, Hardline & many more). Think Yngwie Malmsteen on steroids. Neoclassical metal, I guess you'd classify it as. They released 2 albums in 1987 & 1988 & then disbanded after Marty got the Megadeth gig.

    Like I said, they were the first ones that popped into my head. There's also no Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Steve Vai, Slash, Joe Perry or Ace Frehley. Not because I don't enjoy them, but because I thought of the other ones first.

    And Zakk Wylde, Gus G. & Joe Holmes aren't on the list either, so there goes that theory.

    Fripp also played on David Bowie's Heroes and some of Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) - very distinctive sound. And contributed to the first three Peter Gabriel albums. And "I Zimbra" on Talking Heads' Fear Of Music
