Gonna post a coupla live clips of these bands in concert
Recently ah've happen upon Great white, and ah honestly have no idea how they havn't got as big as say, Van Halen or Ratt. They have some really great songs!
Why not post some bands here that don't get alot of love compared to some of the others out there.
List of underrated bands that deserve alot more than they got (for me):
Great White (Mark Kendall really has some great feel)
Dokken (this one can be argued however, it seems a lot of people in the guitar world/obsessed with the 80s know about 'em)
White Lion (Vitto Bratta has some really nice melodic leads)
Anyone else wanna pitch in?
Here are a few of mine:

Dann Huff was probably my number 1 rated under rated guitar player ever. Listen to Time to Burn from Giant. Whoa mama
Also don't miss the chance at some new ones as well! CrashDiet and Crazy Lixx are GREAT new 80's style bands

The problem is most bands that made it big in the mid 80s got lumped into the "beginning of the end." The sad part is, when all the copy cat bands popped out there was little concern about whether they were talented or not. it was all about the fad. Looking back on them more objectively now it's easy to see there was a lot of outstanding talent hidden under all that hair.

White Lion kinda had a short shelf life...I was lucky enough to open for them two weekends in a row at small clubs, then they exploded. Shortly after, Vito left and they were never the same.
Practice cures most tone issues.
Great Deals with MrWhipper, JoeyM, Del Hudson, skydive69 and Kramer Classic I
Ah'm only 16 so ah can see what ya mean.
Honestly just compared to some of the other bands out there, espeically Def Leppard, Poison, Ratt, Van Halen, and Motley Crue, ah almost never hear anything from any of the bands that ah listed, as well as many of the ones ah've seen posted by you guys.
But then again my generation has absolutely no taste in music so...there is always that ultimatum as well.

Ward, I think you were a little hard on the Beaver last night!
Let's not forget the early innovators, these stepping stones for some of rock's most famous.
I'm a huge fan of Pantera's glam era. I think most people write them off because of what they became, but their independent albums are definitely worth a listen. I like Pantera's first two major label releases, but I think their independent stuff is much, much better. Here's a couple worth listening to.
