Most of the greats trace their inspiration back to black blues players of the 30's 40's and 50's and Freddie King was one of the best. His inspiration was Howlin Wolf mentioned in an earlier post.
​​​​​​​
Beatles, Stones, Clapton, Allmans, Knopfler would comb thru record stores listening to the black blues players. Radio stations wouldn't play their music. Allman's Fillmore East Album is mostly black blues covers ( one of best live albums of all time IMO )
Freddie King and Johnny Winter are my two all-time favorites. Their work just speaks to me......One that I would pick for "underated" because people don't think of him that way is George Clinton.

Spent a lot of time in the 70's and early 80's involved with the Dallas music scene and as someone mentioned above, Freddie King was an immeasurable talent that failed to find the recognition he deserved in his lifetime.

Peter Green is also an old bluesman that most people don't have clue about. He founded Fleetwood Mac, before letting his propensity for psychedelics force him to make a mental illness detour.
He wrote some great music too:

Alot of people recognize his guitar, may not know who he is
Calling Zakk underrrated is a bit of a stretch...Im super stoked to have tickets to see him with Nuno Bettencourt, Steve Vai, Ynwie Malmsteen and Tosin Abasi next week. Not sure how that many notes will all sound mixed together, but Im willing to find out!!

My pick will be Vivian Campbell. Epic licks starting at 3:45. He is the the A class of heavy metal guitarists. I saw this tour, blew my mind. Jimmy Bain on Bass.

IMHO, Malcolm Young was one of the most underrated guitarists of our time, largely because Angus was always in the spotlight but it was Malcolm who came up with 99% of those timeless riffs. His tight rhythm guitar allowed Angus to do his thing. The foundation of AC/DC's music was always Mal.

Amazing that it took 9 pages to mention Malcolm Young.

Not sure how underrated Id say Marty Friedman is, pretty much everyone considers him a virtuoso. His Tornado of Souls solo is absolutely amazing
