The Contenders: Page 7

121 Bruce Springsteen Bruce Springsteen

Seriously, he is not really primarily known for his guitar work but the intro solo on "Prove it All Night" on the 1978 Darkness tour was just amazing.

122 Steve Lukather Steve Lukather
123 Frank Marino

Frank can out gun any guitarist on this list. So underrated. Just listen to Mahogany Rush Live and you'll see what I'm talking about. Another great (though cut) song is Johnny B. Goode from California Jam 2. It's a masterpiece of playing complete with the best rendition of "Electric Reflections of War". Hey Zakk Wilde praised him many times.

Holy cow this guy gets the shaft. If you've never heard this guy, then you don't know the definition of underrated. Look him up and tell me I'm wrong. He was doing this stuff in the 70's for crying out loud!

124 Noel Gallagher Noel Gallagher Noel Thomas David Gallagher is an English musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist. He served as the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist and principal songwriter of the rock band Oasis.
125 Eric Johnson Eric Johnson Eric Johnson (born August 17, 1954) is an American guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist from Austin, Texas. Best known for his electric guitar skills, Johnson is also a highly proficient acoustic, lap steel, resonator, and bass guitarist as well as an accomplished pianist and vocalist.

How the hell is this guy only 204? Has nobody heard Cliffs of Dover?

Even on the list of underrated, he's underrated - Plonderss

EJ should be at least Top 20! This guy can play circles around most so-called "Guitar-Gods"!

126 Paco De Lucia Paco De Lucia Francisco Gustavo Sánchez Gomez, known as Paco de Lucía, was a Spanish virtuoso flamenco guitarist, composer and producer.

Every guitarist should listen to Paco

127 Stevie Stevens
128 Carlos Santana Carlos Santana Carlos Santana audio is a Mexican and American musician who first became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band, Santana, which pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music.
129 Tommy Thayer
130 Mike Turner

Very creative, tasteful unconventional guitarist. Olp was garbage after he left. That just shows you how important he really was to them

Very underrated, especially by OLP.. Without OLP they lost their way! Check out his new stuff on Crash Karma!

131 Doug Boyle

Truly brilliant, a virtuoso in every respect! Amazing performer on stage, with a unique gift for soloing! He had a special talent for making his guitar sing, for bending notes, and making unreal sounds! But, like Robert Plant's amazing solo career-- WAY underrated!

132 Luca Turilli

He Play's Neoclassical Like Yngwie But He Dosn't Just Shred He Plays With Felling Too And Rhapsody Of Fire Is An Italian Power Metal Band So Of Course He's Underrated. My Opinion He's Better Than Malmsteen

133 John Williams
134 Frank Hannon - Tesla

He is without a doubt the most underrated guitarists ever. Especially since he was not on this list and because a lot of the people who have done this list have probably never heard of him. Search Tesla forevermore and change your mind now! M/

135 Dave Edmunds

Have a listen to the "Blues Helping" album by his late 60's band called "Love Sculpture", especially the tune entitled "The Stumble".

Technically excellent in hgis early work and great versitiliy from shredding to picking!

136 David Grohl
137 Paul Weller Paul Weller

So Awesome. One of the great songwriters as well.

138 Tommy Bolin Tommy Bolin Thomas Richard "Tommy" Bolin was an American-born guitarist who played with Zephyr, The James Gang, and Deep Purple; in addition to maintaining a notable solo career.
139 Ace Frehley Ace Frehley Paul Daniel "Ace" Frehley is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as the former lead guitarist and founding member of the rock band Kiss.

Ace is one of the top 5 underrated guitarists of all time. Period. Whoever put Tommy Thayer on this list is making me sick

140 Wolf Hoffman

He is a genius just listen to songs like head over heels or balls to the wall by Accept
