I've always liked Vandenberg. I get the impression he has kept himself kind of low key in between his big act gigs. Seems I recall he has a pretty active art career too

Those guys are decent players but they get lost in the generic crowd of hair guitarists.

That's because they may not be the "frontmen" of the band. What I mean with this is that for example Guns N' Roses was Slash and Axl, not just Axl. Ozzy Osbourne is Ozzy + the guitarist. Van Halen is Eddie + the vocalist. They are kind of like the second frontman. But Adrian played in Whitesnake which is pretty much Coverdale's band. I don't know much about Europe. But I would guess they were "lower profile" guitarists than Slash, Van Halen, Randy Rhoads, Zakk Wylde and guys like that were.

Also, as GuitarMunky said, 80s was full of shred guitarists. Only a couple of them were remembered because of their unique style. Many of the 80s guitarists just sounded the same.
