    The 80's was the decade where guitarists started standing out. This is a hard choice but hands down: Mr. George Lynch from Dokken.

    I saw him twice. The first time in Miami on the Soul to Soul tour with The Fabulous Thunderbirds opening. I got right up against the stage and got his low E string that he broke (sadly misplaced years ago).
    I saw him again about a year later with the Outlaws as an opening act. Both shows were very good. I feel fortunate to have seen him.

    I love his insturmentals especially Testify and Scuttlebuttin'.

    Has to be Stuart Adamson from Big Country for me. A truly brilliant band and so original. No band sounds like them - they are truly unique.

    Someone (maybe on this site) mentioned that Big Country was loudest, most crystyal clear sounding band they've ever seen live.

    You've sparked my interest porrohman. I must delve into their catalog.
