Rex Carrol. He's primarily played in contemporary christian metal bands such as White Cross and King James but he's really good!

there are rarely any bands where i HAVE to have their music so i don't know guys in bands like the rest of you.

but 2 guys that i love to listen to and are actually the inspiration for me wanting to play the guitar are:

Mick Mars - Motley Crue
DJ Ashba - Sixx AM/Guns N Roses

Mars is great and doesn't seem to get the attention a lead guitarist normally would get considering he's in a such a huge band like Motley Crue.

Ashba is a guy i recently learned about b/c of Sixx AM....started looking up video clips of him and found one of him doing the national anthem @ a chiefs game....

Some excellent choices I see! But my under the radar pick would be Bill Nelson of Be Bop Deluxe. That guy never makes the A list and deserves to be. He is amazing!

#1 on my list (page 1) is Mick Mars and here's why. Mick gets little recognition in a band with 3 massive egos to feed. He can't move around much on stage (bone disease) and doesn't have to. He's gotta deliver the guitar licks without the help of a rhythm guitarist and does so, Masterfully. He's a Great player...End of Story. 35549_1315379495877_1572407171_30783867_8138014_n.jpg

Why are people including Prince? He was just included on a new Rolling Stone countdown for the top 100 guitarists.

Stefan Lessard is never on any lists. What a shame.

Smokin' footage. I'm in my 40's and saw them at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto on their "Theatre of Pain" Tour in 1985. Checkout the ticket price back then.

i wanted to go see them this past summer in Milwaukee but my wife brought the hammer down on that idea.

could've been within the 1st 10-15 rows for about $200 each.

thought about going out to Las Vegas in Feb. to see them @ the Hard Rock Hotel...they are the house band for the entire month.

Prince is indeed an awesome guitarist, as well as many other instruments, but his playing explodes mostly live. He's accomplished in many styles, but obviously his music, or at least his most commercial stuff didn't show that off

Here is a nice snippet of him doing a wonderful job on a almost sacred song

Another guy I discovered a little while ago in The Aristocrats is Guthrie Govan used to be #1 for some years a while ago

Steve Clark's solo on this song is awesome.
I never read his name on any lists of guitar greats which is a shame.

David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) makes the occasional list but usually way down.

Alex Lifeson (Rush)

Agreed on both counts, though Gilmour does make lists, just that prog music in general is never well represented in those polls. A crying shame. As for Lifeson, he probably is one of the most underrated of all. How can you be a 3 piece band and make such great music without a great guitarist, I ask you? Geddy Lee and Neil Peart are always considered highly in those polls, do the math.
