    Never heard of him. Is he related to David Gilmour?

    Assuming you mean David, I agree he is very underrated. Most? I guess it depends. I’ve always thought Bob Weir was one of the most underrated for having to play between Jerry and Phil, but that’s just me.

    FYI Fishface, about 8 or 9 years ago I had the chance to meet Storm Thorgerson (the artist who made the Houses of the Holy cover that is your sig, along with dozens of other iconic covers). Really nice, humble guy considering his career. He was showing his works in London. I desperately wanted to pony up the $ for the Houses artist proof, but it was a bit much for a student. Anyhow, if you don’t know his work, it’s worth looking into.

    My favorite musician of all time. A close second would be Warren Haynes.

    Floyd is one of the few bands that I enjoy their newer music , and by newer I mean 80s and 90s. I loved Roger Waters Floyd but I can listen to On The Turning Away and Sorrow on repeat all day.

    Randy Rhoads is the GOAT

    Billy Duffy pretty damn solid as well.

    Buckethead may disagree about the 'most' part of underrated

    I'm not a huge Comfortably Numb fan but this 2016 version JAMS... .7:45-8:00 gets all over me

    I have been picking 55 years and I can't imagine who would think DG is underrated

    If you don't know of this vinyl by Pink Floyd, you really need to give it a listen, it's an "Obscure" one 8)
