The late, great "Glen Buxton" back in 69 when Alice Cooper was the greatest unknown band in the world.

"Wendel Richardson" .....Osibisa.

"Leigh Stephens" ..........Blue Cheer

I thought of a couple of others at work today! (funny how these damn threads stick in my mind)....

Billy Zoom (X)

Danny Kalb (The Blues Project)

Waddy Wachtel (Cowsills, Ronstadt, Zevon , ETC.)

Yeah, his vocals are a bigger deal to people, lol. Now his vocals are gone because of all of the drinking and his age. But his guitar playing is still just as sharp.

Peace out, GuitarAnatomy.

Yea, but his vocals are still there. They only got better.. okay throw your stones at me now....... done?
Simply put: his vocals have always been completely raw; now he has complete control over it. I like old [around Kill em All] AND new MetallicA, minus St. Anger for obvious reasons.

Guitaranatomy wrote:Hey, another guitarist who has not gotten recognition... Um... How about Tom Morello? He has not been mentioned enough in my opinion. I hear his name around, sure, but it should be mentioned more. After all, he gave both to the whole warping effects thing in rock.

Love your music taste! .. but Morello is NOT so underrated.. he's just fine.. you have to remember that he's not the only one with the screaming solos in RATM n Audioslave.. there was Buckethead, for example, whose style resembles Morello's .. all cool though.

I dont know but one of my earlier bands used to play "I Like To Rock". I always thought it was cool how he copped the Beatles Day Tripper on the fade out on guitars, We used to play right into Daytripper when we played it.

Man you guys are bringing back memerys now. Some of them Painful.

Thinking over this thread again I think Im the most underrated guitarist on the planet. Hows that for self promotion?

Here's a jaw-dropper....

Wes Borland!

Cmon, you can hate Fred Durst all you like, but you have to give Wes some props. I not saying this based on his technical skill, but the guy is sooo original. Odd tunings and effects, his riffs. He had some pretty cool fingertapping songs as well.
I can understand getting flamed, but now-a-days you don't get to much originality.

Well he does put on a good show. If only he played good music, I'd probably listen to him a lil less than regularly.
