I still don't think Nuno Bettencourt gets his due outside of certain circles.
Absolutely. "More than Words" confused many people.Agreed....one of the most versatile players out there. He, and Extreme, were somewhat victims to the success of "More Than Words" on Top 40 radio. While it's great they achieved success and $$ as they deserved, those that did not listen to the rest of their music because.....pop perception, missed out.
Recently on the Generation Axe tour, I could see that many in the audience (mostly guitar players obviously) were not very familiar with him, but were blown away by him.
And Zappa, killer guitar player, but I think many just know of his humous lyrics, not his guitar prowess...which was incredible!!!
