This guy is amazing. He's a great guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Even after leaving Styx and the Damn Yankees, he's done pretty good solo. His voice is amazing. He's so great yet so underrated.

205Stevie Ray VaughanStephen "Stevie" Ray Vaughan (October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990) was an American musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer. In spite of a short-lived mainstream career spanning seven years, he is widely considered one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of music, and more.

This man is a genius. He's great at the guitar and his music is great too. I mean, he's a legend. Too bad he's gone. He had so much talent. I wish he could come back.

207Benjamin OrrBenjamin Orzechowski, known as Benjamin Orr, was an American musician best known as a singer, bassist and co-founder of the rock band the Cars.

He was a great singer/guitarist and so hot! It makes me sad that he died. This man was an angel. He will definitely be missed. He was very talented and died too early. May his soul be with us. R.I.P. benjamin Orr. You were amazing!

Seriously nowhere to be found? This guy had one of the best tones in the 80s... Great memorable solos... Hard to imagine the most famous Scorpions songs like Rock you like a hurricane without his solos

Only reason not #1 (or at least near the top of this list) is because most people have never heard him - hence, why he is truly underrated. Dinosaur Jr. is just too far out there for the mainstream, I think. Still, You're Living All Over Me is an absolute masterpiece - his guitar work is unbelievable on that album. There is no other comparison to the sounds that he is making on that album (and the other early DJ albums) than to say something like, "Easily the Hendrix of his generation." And dude is still getting after it.
