Mick Ronson- heaven and hull
I never owned that Mick Ronson LP. But I'm most definitely going to check it out later this week when I get some spare time. The 2 times I saw Mick Ronson in concert I was extremely impressed both times. He's one of those behind the scenes type artists that I don't feel got the respect he was due because he was most of the time in the backdrop of most rock acts.
I would also put Martin Lancelot Barre in that same category. Even the most ardent rock fans have little or no idea who Martin Lancelot Barre is>> Well he was the guitar god/genius of the powerhouse English Rock sensation JETHRO TULL. And he was the only band member to stay with the group all the years that Ian Anderson ( the lead singer, acoustic guitarist) of JETHRO TULL kept the group going. So all the great guitar work you've heard on all of the JETHRO TULL albums was done by Martin Lancelot Barre>> truly a guitar genius by anyone's standards>> and well respected among his peers.
You could probably add Robert Fripp to that mix as well. He was the guitarist and genius head of the group KING CRIMSON. Yeah there were some great ones that pretty much stayed in the backdrop of some great bands throughout the years.
