I'm not really familiar with his playing, but I always thought it was a shame he spent quite a while with Ozzy but never (as far as I know) recorded with him.


Craig Goldy - I think his playing on Dio's Magica is excellent.
I'm a big Dio fan, and an equally big Goldy fan, but I have to ask : what's the appeal of Magica?
For me it's a drab, depressing album with none of the guitar fireworks Goldy brought to Dio's live shows. I think it's my second least favourite Dio album, preceded only by the timeless stinker Angry Machines...

I've only really heard him on Dream Evil and the first Giuffria album.  I thought Dream Evil was a bit disappointing after the three albums with Viv Campbell.
BKPs I've Got:  RR, BKP-91, ITs, VHII, CS set, Emeralds
BKPs I Had:  RY+Abraxas, Crawlers, BD+SM

Another victim of the Osbourne machine...

I love Dream Evil. I know a lot of people were disappointed with it, but there's some amazing songs on there.
I saw Dio live with Goldy on the Sacred Heart tour, and he left a big impression there, so I was inclined to like the album.

Marc Ford from The Black Crowes, re-watching the early days with the crowes including the drug years and BOY that man can play and then to follow up when he left the band they had the amazing Audley Freed. Cry of Love are still one of the bands that influence me to this day.
Someone who's under-rated at the moment but I reckon might recognition later is a dude called Nalle Colt whom plays with Vintage Trouble, some amazing playing so concise & picks the part perfectly.
Matt Schofield gets some love on here, but not everywhere and he really does deserve it.
Paul Mahon from The Answer is a pretty awesome player & a really nice bloke to boot

I personally think Jake E. Lee is a very underated guitarist. I think because he came straight after Randy Rhoads, people were still getting over Randy's death as well as how much of a great guitarist he was! U listen to the 2 Ozzy albums Jake E. lee was on, and you can't help but to really appreciate his style, as well as his inventiveness. To name a well known song: Shot in the Dark was a great song in terms of uniquness. He tuned his guitar to a weird tuning, and managed to creat a great opening out of harmonics and bending the strings behind the nut. He really was on a different level when it came to songwriting.

I loved the first two Badlands albums. They don't seem to be available today. Its years since i heard them.

+1 to a few of those mentioned already.


Chris Poland
Alex Lifeson

None of those guys are exactly unknowns, but I don't think they get as much recognition as they deserve.  I think they're all pretty special.


For Lifeson doubters, I will always point La Villa Strangiato at their ears.

Some good names in that list - I love Schofield, saw him earlier this year in a sweaty club in Winchester. Top playing and a top bloke too.

Also, there is a great Audley Freed collection of vids on youtube - some summer fair thing for Gibson. I won't post the links again as I think I've put them up on the forum at least 4 times (that's how much I like it!)
I think I hate being indecisive.

Once and awhile I listen to Danny Gatton for inspiration. Too bad he died young, but a great guitarist. Technically skilled and tasty playing.
