Default Lindsey named #2 unrated guitarist of all time in Society of Rock
The Crown Jewel Of Fleetwood Mac!

Now, I can’t imagine that there’s a whole lot I need to say to convince you that this fine gentleman deserves to be on this list. He’s an icon and a legend that never really gets enough credit for his amazing guitar abilities. We could go on for hours about how he is one of the greatest and never EVER gets the recognition that he should be afforded.

It’s truly a mystery as to why he never gets the credit he deserves. Again, he has it all, the look, the ability, and the charisma. Could something have not translated to the fans perhaps? Maybe he wanted it to be that way. Who knows!

The point is he is underrated. VERY underrated. His solos, his song writing, and all of the above are qualities that make a guitarist great, and he IS great. We may never know, but he isn’t about to retire just yet. He’s just getting started!

That's just it. He doesn't have the charisma. He comes across as insular and cold in public and interviews.
I don't believe that, because he's amazing onstage. But the public and critics rarely see that. They base opinions on how he is perceived.
None of the guitar "gods" are architects of their bands. They are flamboyant crowd pleasers. Lindsey isn't

Are These the 10 Most Underrated Guitarists?

There's a saying in professional soccer: There are piano players and piano movers.

There are the forwards (the piano players), who—with skilled footwork and finesse—score goals, and therefore score with fans. And there are the backs (the piano movers), whose grunt work, though important, doesn't appear in the stats. The point is, you can't have success without both.

In guitar land, this metaphor is best illustrated by AC/DC's Young brothers during that band's heyday. While Angus did most of the "playing" (not to mention running around and taking on obnoxious drunken fans) Malcolm, with his yeoman-like rhythm work, moved pianos. In doing so, he became the ultimate unsung rock guitarist.

In the photo gallery below, we present several others.

By the way, we're well aware of the fact that this list could go on forever. We all know of incredible players who don't get the recognition they deserve—while people like Miley Cyrus are raking it in, for some reason.

Off the top of (at least one of) our heads, there's Harvey Mandel, Pete Thorn, Clarence White, Lonnie Johnson, TK Smith, Dave Wronski, Laurence Juber, Frank Marino, Albert Collins, Bob Warford, Shawn Lane, Criss Oliva, Rik Emmett, the guitarist in any corner bar in Nashville, Alex Lifeson, Prince, Don Rich, Andy Fairweather Low, Peter Green, Guitar Slim, Johnny Marr, Norman Blake, Lenny Breau, Robbie Blunt, Magic Sam, Lonnie Mack ... you get the idea.

On that note, we invite you to check out the video below, "Top 10 Underrated Guitarists," and tell us if you agree with their choices. Enjoy!


08. Lindsey Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac) For those of you who still associate Fleetwood Mac with their classic, Rumours-era sound, wake up! On 2003's Say You Will, Buckingham breaks out into wild and frisky extended jams loaded with musical ideas that flirt with spontaneous combustion.

Thumbs up Spontaneous Combustion!

That should be the title of Lindsey's next solo album. LOL
