    Ah, found it. Kendell Bechtel replaced James Byrd. The other guitar player in the band was Ed Archer.

      Those guys are all monsters. I saw Saga on Breakfast Television a few months ago, and Crichton can still play up a storm. He was using a floyd-equpped guitar through a rackmount SLO and two cabs. Kim Mitchell was always cool too. Check out Max Webster's "In The World Of Giants" if you want to hear him shred his ass off. Pete Lesperance is a monster as well, and he's really popular in Japan and Asia (that's how Harem Scarem make a living - they surely don't sell in Canada). Marvin Birt was very underrated as well. Oddly enough, a few months ago, I saw Paul MacAusland (Haywire's vocalist) playing in a pub here in Ottawa. He was doing the usual cover tunes. The guy has gained a lot of weight. I didn't even recognize him.


      Harem Scarem is one of my favorite bands ever. Too bad I'm never going to see them living in the states.

        While I wasn't much into 80's guitar, there were a few I did like...

        -Gary Moore (most of my licks are ripoffs of his)
        -Kim Mitchell (Max Webster)
        -John Albini (guitarist for Lee Aaron)
        -Glen Alvalais (Forbidden)
        -Alex Skolnick
        -Steve Stevens (might not be under the radar, but he's great)
        -Larry Mitchell
        -Michael Lee Firkins (the only Shrapnel guy I could stand)
        -Bruce Bouillet

          for bands i thought should have gotten bigger i'd say;

          RAIL
          RIOT
          SHOOTING STAR



          for just the guitar player it would be PAT McManus from Mama's Boys, they were a power trio of brothers, from i beleave Ireland. thier album was just kindda average, but Pat tore it up live and ripped on the fiddle as well.

            ****************, this is the first time I've ever seen his name mentioned. I saw TT Quick at least a dozen times when I was a young dude.
            They f'ng rock.. It's sad that Dave Di Pietro gets no mention, when in fact he is a killer player.

              Universal Juveniles is the quintessential good rock guitar album.

                If we can go as far back as the 1970's I would mention Randy Bachman

                  Alan Murphy who died in 1989, was a great player ,he played with Level 42 and Go West in the 80`s he also did quite a few sessions on some popular singles back then ,you could recognize his playing very easy ,he did use quite a few of Alan Holdsworth type teqniques though, but still, he could rip it up some.

                    John Levin of the German band Warlock and currently with Dokken.

                    Robin Tower, criminally passed over and accused of being a "Hendrix clone ".


                    Mitch Perry, played with Billy Sherman's , Talas.

                    Robert Sarzo of Hurricane, Jeff Tate's version of Queensryche, also the Brother of legendary bassist , Rudy Sarzo.

                    Akira Takahashi of Loudness. Easily, can stand shoulder to shoulder with Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai or any 1980's shred guitar heroes.

                    Great guitarists, but sadly criminally overlooked

                    How many guitarists does it take to screw in a lightbulb ? Five , one to screw it in , hit the switch and four to sit around bragging how much better they could have done it !!!! 😱👹😲
