A guy out of Nova Scotia, Dutch Mason. He was really into BB King.
Lost his ability to play in the eighties due to arthritis.
Dutchy died in 06. (RIP)

I'm not sure if he counts as "unknown" looking at his resume, but I can count on one hand with fingers left over the number of times I've seen someone name him on musician boards. But he's probably the guy who initially influenced me to pick up the guitar in the first place. Hadley Hockensmith.

I don't want to say 'influences' so much because I don't feel like I cop their style directly or even effectively. And I wouldn't say 'lesser known' so much because we all know them here. But non-guitar people probably aren't too keen on:

Rick Miller (S.C.O.T.S.)
Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac)
Martin Barre (Jethro Tull)
Andy Powell (Wishbone Ash)

And of course: Toni Iommi

In my original list I forgot Danny Kirwan.

Unknown in this circle but not in this one: Terrance Hobbs from Suffocation. Crazy right hand for riffing, absolute monster of a lead player and writes some absolutely fantastic, memorable songs. He happened to kind of create slam/brutal death too with that riff towards the end of Liege of Inveracity.

Seji Kakuzaki from Japanese melodic death band Intestine Baalism however, completely blew my mind the first time I ever heard their music. Top tier riffs and lead parts, IMHO. IB and Black Dahlia Murder are easily the top two bands in this subgenre. Seji is on the right, playing the Jackson.
