Dang! I forgot about Zoot Horn! I always wished if I could play like any guitarist it would be zoot horn rollo. I had the historical opportunity to see Captain Beefheart in 1971 and 1972. Crazy amazing shows.
Let us not forget Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols.
Superb, he often goes by the name of Točak.
Here is another one of his:
I think people often forget Roy Buchannon,I had the good fortune to meet him once, he was a players player.
Andy Timmons, formerly of Danger Danger (which was odd because he has a degree in jazz) got to see him play with Simon Phillips (Toto) Protocol band. Just outstanding player with incredible feel.
I know they are from the 90's but they sound like they are from the 70's is the most under rated rock band that no one has heard of "Cry of Love" with Audley Freed on guitar. They only made 2 albums but they are such great albums. He went on to play with the Black Crowes and now Cheryl Crow. If you like 70's rock you really should check out these albums.
Maybe the obvious choice, but Lindsay Buckingham. Huge influence on me.
Found this guy recently, he is so smooth, was Merle Haggard's guitar player for years.
Omar Dykes, of Omar and the Howlers.
Martin Barre of Jethro Tull
Edit: I guess I should have read the thread first
Yes...and it epitomized everything that was wrong with that decades...."I'm In You"....ugh! Took me a long time to appreciate his playing again after that hot pop mess.
I haven't forgotten.
Buckethead came out in the 80s so I'm gonna say my 2nd favorite guitar player, Buckethead. I think it was around 87/88/89 that he started being known around the industry and started making a name for himself by sending tapes to that guitar magazine. Since then, it's been a hell of a ride for Big B.
Did I really see Steve Howe checked here?? C’mon ya’ll….
I guarantee this one of the best rock guitar players you’ve never heard of.
Clem Clemson! Peter Frampton's replacement in Humble Pie was regally Les Paulish and completely British bluesy.
Great name but it ends there. On the Guitar Player magazine polls of that era he was always a contender. I remember voting for him because of his stage name alone.
