    Mick Mars for sure, great tone & riffs and his leads had good hooks. Just got overshadowed by his crazy bandmates. I'll throw a few more out there...

    Jan Akkerman - good stuff with Focus and his Noise of Art album is TASTY!

    Fernando von Arb - OK, so I'm a closet Krokus fan, but damn he had some nice tones and catchy riffs (more so after they moved past trying to copy AC/DC)

    Glenn Tipton - Always preferred him to KK!

    Really like Tipton and KK being added. It would be hard for me to pick one over the other. I think they are probably the greatest duo and they made each other great.

    Should add Don Felder too, especially when you think of all the different styles he had to cover with the Eagles (rock, country, R&B).

    I would also add Martin Barre to the list of underrated guitarists. The work he's done on Jethro Tull albums is stellar.

    Neil Giraldo gets my vote. Amazing talent, never recognized as one of the great ones.

    that doesn't impress me. He's had WAY more time to practice than any of us.

    How about best guitarist at staying out of the rest of the bands way..?
    For that: Mick Ralphs is near the top
    He's a mediocre talent by comparison to the gods but he was PERFECT for Bad Company

    Also:
    Bad Company drummer Simon Kirk is the Mick Ralphs of Drummers :rofl:

    The ability to "do nothing" or "Do no harm" during a song cannot be under estimated
