162 Joey Santiago

Greatest ever

163 Mike Bloomfield
164 Peter Frampton Peter Frampton
165 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

166 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

168 Dave Meniketti - Y&T
169 Ric Ocasek

171 Jeff Healey Jeff Healey Norman Jeffrey "Jeff" Healey was a Canadian jazz and blues-rock vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter who attained musical and personal popularity, particularly in the 1980s and 1990s.

He is one of the greatest Guitar Players and underrated!

173 Wes Borland Wes Borland Wesley Louden "Wes" Borland is an American rock musician and artist. He is best known as the current guitarist and backing vocalist of the nu metal band Limp Bizkit and as the lead vocalist of the industrial rock band Black Light Burns.

174 Richard Z. Kruspe Richard Z. Kruspe
175 Allen Collins Allen Collins
176 Kai Hansen Kai Hansen
177 Tom Delonge Tom Delonge Thomas Matthew "Tom" DeLonge, Jr., is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, and film producer. He was born in Poway, California on December 13, 1975 . When he was in high school at age 15, he got expelled for drinking at a basketball game . He also used to play the more.

Truly underrated, while he may have been known, he is underappreciated as a guitarist. Why is he on the most overrated guitarists when he is barely even appreciated? He is the reason I even picked up guitar in the first place, and his riffs may not be the most technical, but man, he is creative. If you don't believe me, then you have probably only to his songs with simple riffs like All The Small Things. Listen to Obvious by Blink-182, Secret Crowds by Angels And Airwaves, and All Systems Go by Box Car Racer and tell me he isn't a good guitarist. - AnimeDrawer
