Under rated, for me Definitely Tony Bourge of Budgie

Rory Galagher I wouldn't say was under rated but sometimes over looked

Mr Young is absolutly the worst guitar player ever! I am always floored when anybody mentions him in the same sentence as "Guitar Player". A good song smith, but that is it.

Don't really have anyone to add to the overrated list. If they aren't my cup of tea I just don't listen to them much.

Underrated: Could add a ton here, but will just add a couple of names:

Andy Timmons

Prashant Aswani

Raphael Moreira

Gonna jump on this bandwagon-- Neil Young's definitely a way better songwriter than guitar player

Not bad, not bad at all. I just Googled him to see what else he's up to these days and found an article from about half a year after the concert in that video, where it was announced that he has tonsil cancer, poor guy:

Haven't seen anything more recent than 2014 though, so I'm guessing he did make that full recovery
