    I think CC Deville is a solid player. Bluesy, nice tone, smooth phrasing, never wanks...

    Andy Scott (Sweet). Some of the B-sides and album tracks rocked. He was respected by musicians of the era. I have seen a video of him playing with Ritchie Blackmore, and Kiss cite Sweet as a major influence. His cherry 335 is iconic.

    We'll..unless it's Page, Santana, Hendrix or Clapton, chances are they're under appreciated.
    The A list is criminally short.
