To be fair, I don't think I've ever heard somebody namecheck the Edge when talking about great guitarists. U2 come from a period when the mission statement of their genre (post punk/ new wave/ pre-alt rock, whatever) was to move away from guitar being the main focal point and create music where all sound aspects contribute equally. U2 was part of a resistant reaction to guitar-hero rock.

It's silly to even mention him at all in this context.

re: Guitarists That Seem Overrated
maybe so ... this is a very interesting question because you really have to seperate the guitar player from the band they are well known for ( or bands) and look at how technically sound they are ...there are 3 guitar players who changed the instrument so to speak and none of them should ever be considered overrated : Hendrix...EVH and Yngwie Malmsteen

And aside from Hendrix , i personally like others before Eddie and Yngwie but cannot deny them their place as game changers

re: Guitarists That Seem Overrated
Just don't see how EVH or SRV appear at all in this thread. They are perhaps the only two guitarists that can make a guitar sing.

Different but both were amazing musicians.

For my overrated list (just never game a "wow" or "sweet"):
Clapton
Jimi
Angus

Someone mentioned Mick Ralphs (Bad Company). Never thought of him as a great guitarist but Bad Co was a great rock band.
