My last thread on OVER-RATED guitarists was an easy one.
This ons is gonna be much harder and separates the real musicians from the not so real!
So which guitar player(s) are sorely missing the RESPECT they deserve in the industry and amongst peers.
Here is my list
1) Ritchie Blackmore - The guy is a guitar GOD and plays on the same stage as guys like Hendrix, Page, EVH, Yngvwie, Vai, Vaughan....but we never really hear about t his. Without Blackmore all us neo-classical lead guitar players would either not exist or suck.
2) Jason Becker - (pre-disability) probably the best technical guitar player in his time next to Vai. (post disability) probably the next Mozart or Beethoven. Centuries from now our decendants will see this.
3) That other guy from WHAM OK I dont know if he plays guitar but I saw him holding one in one of their videos haha
