    Some very deserving company...you can add Kevin Breit, Jack Semple, Gaye Delorme, Harry Manx, J.P. Cormier, Don Alder, Jeff Healey & Don Ross, to that partial list of Canadiana.

    Don was my neighbour for a bit. Kevin produced a friend of mine's first album. I did the second. How about Luke Doucet?

    Cheers,

    I know of Luke's name, but not his work...Matt Anderson & Garrett Mason are yet, other, deserving names.

    Lots of good names. I think Rory Gallagher is probably the greatest of the least known. Among others I didn't already see I would say Zal Cleminson work with the Sensational Alex Harvey Band should get more recognition, Eddie Hazel of P-Funk, and a whole host of great but largely ignored blues guitarists. Hubert Sumlin. Hound Dog Taylor and Brewer Philips. Guitar Shorty.

    Need more coffee, there are too many to recall.

    When it comes to the general public ignoring an underrated guitarist I'd say Brian Setzer & Brent Mason. Brent is really starting to make more of a public name for himself. Brian Setzer...every time I mention him I always have to add "remember the Stray Cats?".....Also Neil Girardo from Pat Benatar...

    The word was that Phil was always superior but various personal problems held him back. I don't know how true that is.

    My buddy, Darrell's biggest influence, is Zal Clemininson...I only knew of them via an appearance on Don Kirchner, back in the day, having never forgotten the charismatic frontman & his white faced, guitarist's performance of, "Vambo Marble Eye". Good on you to mention some of those blues greats!

    Back in the early '90's, I caught the Hellecasters, with Adrian Legg, opening the show. I was absolutely floored by his unique, virtuosity...I don't know much more about him, beyond that, but he's a remarkable guitarist!


    Many know Pete Anderson from his days as Dwight Yoakum's producer & lead guitarist. He's also an incredible songwriter & blues guitarist, who likes to mix up his sets with a little jazz, slide & some instrumental adventures...highly overlooked & worth checking out, especially live!
