148 Peter Frampton Peter Frampton
149 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.

Most underrated rock singer ever

151 Gary Hoey

Gary Hoey has a lot of good music, mainly instrumental. He's also covered all kinds of music from all kinds of musicians, and he does it so well. He even does Christmas covers. I love his cover for "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch". I also love his covers for "Frankenstein" and Wipe Out". He's such a great guitarist.

152 Dave Meniketti - Y&T
153 Matthias Jabs

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
