I think it's actually Phil Collen doing the solo here. Steve Clark was rhythm guitar for the band while Phil Collen was lead.

Scarr...Clark was a Great player (glad you mentioned him), and passed, way before his time (30 yrs old). Here's some early stuff from my fave Leppard album, "High & Dry" (1981)...This is "Let it Go".

Pete Lesperance of the band Harem Scarem is another very underrated guitarist.

Geddy Lee and Neil Peart are always considered highly in those polls, do the math.
I was thinking that the other day while watching the Cream reunion at the Royal Albert Hall from a few years ago on blu, that they have a lot in common with bands like Rush. You'd better be good if you're in a 3 piece, there's no place to hide...

I'm not a huge fan of his music, but I think the guy can tear it up.

Hey Cmon now be nice to the little guy.. He's is one guitarist that is underated.

George Benson if I can add to the list he's got a new album out now it's Fire!

Ritchie Blackmore never makes it to any lists? He's easily almost always in the top 100.

BB King
Takahiro Sakaguchi this guy from Japanese rock band Nightmare shreds
Gary Moore

these are some of my fave guitarists who don't always get a mention but deserve one.

One from a variety of different genres, but all amazing talents:

Keith Urban
Doug Aldrich
Andy Timmons
Sean Watkins
Reb Beach

and one that gets named occasionally, but is criminally underrated because he is the best guitar player that has ever walked the face of the earth...

Paul Gilbert

If you think I am wrong see this...


:58 seconds in is when he takes away any questions. I have been a guitar player for close to 30 years and can play almost anything I put my mind to. I couldn't play that phrase cleanly if my life depended on it. Paul plays the whole solo with no noticeable errors and he picks every damn note - no hammer-ons. The guy's a technician. I would put him up against anyone. Finally, if you think he's just a shredder take a look around on you tube he can be incredibly tasteful when he wants to be and he can play anything. Look for his classically influenced finger-picked stuff. His right-hand technique is amazingly sophisticated for a metal player. He is truly remarkable.

I remember when Paul was in Racer X and then in the course of a year he dropped into the band Mr.Big. Racer X died off so I guess we see what kept them going. Speaking of Andy Timmons, Danger Danger has to be one of the best hair metal bands of all time and every time I bring them up to someone their like, "Who"? Puppet Show off of their album "Screw It" is classic.
