so, what band/guitarist did you not appreciate until after they 'passed' on / you got older?

My recent threat about the band "Boston" got me thinking. While I may have been fixzated on guitarists such as Joe Satriani, Jake E. Lee, Gary Hoey, Kirk Hammett etc there are plenty of other 'guitarists' in the main-stream that warrant attentiion ( aside from satch, EVH, Vai, Malmsteen, Petrucci, Rhoades, Gilbert, Freidman, Lynhch etc).

Who are the 'other guitarists' that provided good times, good vibes, and good licks (Katipan....you stay outof this :D)?
Neil Shon comes to mind
DeMartini (sp?) from Ratt
Izzy Stradlin
Jake Lee

or after you got old, he said.

One I can think of is Nancy Wilson of Heart. A very talented guitarist and songwriter growing up surrounded by a males only guitar fraternity. She more than held her own.

Have always appreciated Led Zep, but was listening to Mothership on headphones the other day and got a renewed appreciation for how intricate the bass work was
