I was listening to "The Wall" on the way to work this morning, and was reminded again what a great guitar player David Gilmour is. He's not flashy, and he doesn't play 100 miles per hour, but what he does play is awesome. Solos that are musically/melodically incredible.

So, that got me thinking about other underrated/underappretiated guitar players.

Alex Lifeson - Rush
Mark Knopfler - Dire Straits, solo
Steve Stevens - formerly w/Billy Idol
Prince (really- check him out live)
Brad Gilbert - played w/Night Ranger (ugh), but his best work was on Ozzy's "Speak of the Devil" album.
Steve Morse - Dixie Dregs, solo
Kerry Livgren - Kansas
Robert Fripp - King Crimson
Steve Lukather - Toto

Others you can think of???

You are right on, especially about Alex Lifeson. He is very underrated, come to think of it that whole band is underrated.
