Dean Ween, and I think most guitarists featured on this show
If dead guitarists count, Michael Bloomfield.
Kinda started the whole American blues/rock thing with Dylan at Monterey Pop.
He's taken very seriously. Not sure what you've been hearing Robben Ford cites him as a primary influence.
I will also nominate Jerry Garcia and Trey Anastasio who both get written off as noodly stoner jamband losers but are both actually brilliant.
Also, Prince is sorta obvious. As a pop star he's always been paid his due, but his incredibly precise "studio musician" grade rhythm guitar and santana-like legato flurries and smooth Hendrix blues for lead never got paid much respect until recently because of his general antics.
I nominate Jim McCarty of Cactus
+1 on Jim.
In what world are Peter Green, Mike Bloomfield and Rory Gallagher ridiculed/not taken seriously as guitarists?
if you dont have mojo nixon...your store could use some fixin
That picture is disrespectful!
I heard that Debbie Gibson was pregnant with his two-headed love-child...
John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants.
No one said anything about being ridiculed. Perhaps I shouldn't have commented. I wasn't too crazy about the headline. I guess I took it to mean underrated, or under appreciated.
Nah, you're fine to comment. Rory Gallagher is taken seriously by guitarists. But he probably doesnt have a huge following beyond that. So in that sense he's probably not revered by pop music listeners who don't play guitar.
I forgot about Treeman.
Wow, this went wonderfully off the rails.
Holey smokes, yes! I knew the Weens were secret guitar geniuses from the first day I heard "Push th' Little Daisies" on the radio and immediately nabbed their first three albums.
Dweezil Zappa - I remember young metalhead me hearing his guitar work on his cover of Zappa Sr.'s "My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama" and thinking "Why are people not listening to this guy?" I don't think anybody doubts his talent, but it seems he doesn't really get his due. Here's more to my point:
Chris Goss - Sometimes understated, never underwhelming, definitely under-appreciated, but every note is on time in the right place.
... and he plays a Telecaster
