The Contenders: Page 8

141 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!

142 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

143 John Williams
144 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/

145 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!

146 David Grohl
147 Paul Weller Paul Weller

So Awesome. One of the great songwriters as well.

148 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.
149 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

155 Mike Oldfield
156 Peter Frampton Peter Frampton
157 Tommy Shaw Tommy Shaw

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.

Just like Styx this man is amazing and highly underrated with his riffs and solos - Thecyanryan

158 Joe Perry Joe Perry Anthony Joseph "Joe" Perry is the lead guitarist, backing and occasional lead vocalist, and contributing songwriter for the American rock band Aerosmith.

He's a great guitarist and songwriter. So great and not enough credit. I don't see Aerosmith without him and Steven Tyler.
