The most underrated, best guitarist has to be Steve Lukather. Most people only know him from Toto (but have never heard the hard rocking Kingdom of
Desire, where he really shines) but he also played on about 2000 other records, with everyone from Alice Cooper to Michael Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Don
Henley, Jackson Browne, Paul McCartney, Aretha Franklin and millions of others.
Unlike most other guitarists, who can only play one style, he can basically do anything from Fusion Jazz to Blues to shredding. Most musicians regard
him as one of the best ever (guys like Santana, Jeff Beck and Eddie Van Halen said that). It's a shame, the public never really took notice, even
though they propably heard him hundreds of times
Other great guitarrists:
Rory Gallagher - completely underrated
Duane Allman - the god of Slide guitar
Criss Oliva - died to soon because of a drunk asshole, awesome guitarist as proven by the Savatage stuff
Peter Green - created Black Magic Woman, The Green Manalishi, Albatross...no need to say more.
