    Warren DiMartini always seems to fly under the radar.

    Even with the eyeliner & the 14 year old girl's shirt he found in a bin in a thrift shop somewhere, the cat is pretty good. And pretty.:heheh:

    Can't really get on him about the clothes. That was the uniform back then.

    My fav due to his knack for nailing the perfect blusy hard rock, "lonely, misty night under a streetlight" solo.

    Randy Rhodes of Ozzy Ozbourne (Diary Of A Madman)
    Randy came up with some unbelievable riffs, seemingly as easily as Tony Iommi was able to.
    Also, for his classical tendancy, and the ability to tastefully blend it with heavy metal. R.I.P.

    Stevie Ray Vaughan (The Sky Is Cryin')
    Effortless blues player, gritty heart-felt vocals. R.I.P.

    Steve Clark of Def Leppard (Switch 625)
    Brilliant, natural talent. Creative and expressive but hated the spotlight. R.I.P.

    Chris DeGarmo of Queensryche (The Needle Lies)
    For my taste, a good balance of technical ability, and musical sensibility.
    Some really great leads and solos, esp on Rage For Order and Operation Mindcrime.

    I agree with your list except for one thing. Jimi Hendrix died in the 1970 so he can't be considered an 80's guitarist.
