what a fricken retard.
even SRV is not under-rated. i find he gets rated just at a good level, no over hype but not to little. people i find, appreciate his music at a good level. but EVH is WAYYYY over-rated.

actually Adam Jones is really one of the least appreciated guitarists, generally because what he does is considered simple. but he's incredibly creative, and sounds amazing.

George Harrison definatly.
Hes one of my favorite guitarists but i dont think he gets the credit he deserves when it comes to being an outstanding guitar player.

Oh and Martin Barre-lead guitar player from Jethro Tull.

well.. i think Dave Murray is wayy under-rated from how much ive heard of him so far. i mean. does anyone know who he is? he is by far in my opinion.. the best guitarist.

also, brian may, randy rhoads (R.I.P.) and george harrison (R.I.P.)
I truly am my own redeemer
Blindly I follow none but myself
Without fear I am

Steve Howe, Steve Howe, and Steve Howe.

Ok from all of these damn annoying threads I think we get the point that Malcom Young and Alex Lifeson are underrated. Perhaps, we've actually made M. Young rated.
