love it when anyone mentions Steve Jones-from beginner in 1975 to setting standards that have never been bettered for THAT type of playing in 1977 was just phenomenal. How can you top "Holidays in the Sun", "Bodies", "EMI" etc, A truly underated guitarist by most people outside of the UK.

:o hilarius if true

and my input on the topic, some guys who didnt earn a living before mtv:
tom morello (audioslave, ratm)
james hetfeild (under-rated as a rythm player)
daryn malkalian (SOAD)
kim thaiyl (soundgarden)
jerry cantrell
kurt cobain
nick oliveri (ex QOTSA)
adam jones (tool)
trey spruance (mr bungle)
herman li (dragonforce)

not that i dont appriciate the legends (hendrix, page etc.) that everyone else is raving about. i just thought these guys werent gettin enough recognition.
just hope im not the only one out there who thinks so... :)
Note to self: get a job

Currently it's Mike McCready and I don't rate anyone else to be quite honest.

John Frusciante's OK.
