We could go in with this forever....
Yeah, I thought of Pat Travers as well
This is a trip.
At a height of 5 foot 2 inches, AC/DC guitarist Angus Young is always overlooked
I voted Lifeson, but everyone forgot to mention Steve Metheny
Michael Schenker often times seems to be overlooked by people, most specifically by non-guitarists. Any rock guitarist (pro or amature) should be very familiar with the guy. Some of his stuff is amazing, whether it be from UFO, MSG, McAuley Schenker, etc, he has a very impressive library of music.
Here's a live show from 2016, where they jam for about an hour and a half. Lots of goodies in this vid:
I'd actually probably say either Peter Green or Mick Taylor.
But from that list. Rory for me.
There are so many overlooked Rock guitarists, although whether they were geniuses is a tough call. For me one of the most outstanding Rock guitarists who is often overlooked in general discussions is (as already mentioned in this thread) is Michael Schenker espescially from the live album 'Strangers in the Night'. When a guitarist not only shows flair, but can ellicit emotions from his playing, that to me is special. Also from a guitarists point of view I together with my mate noticed he hardly ever repeats himself in his solos which is rare compared to the other 'usual suspects' of guitarists who normally receive greater notice.
When the topic of favorite guitarists comes up, I mention Micheal Schenker as the "guitarist I would most like to sound like",...I think the guy is brilliant. Brilliant technique, brilliant tone.
