All nominations will go in a poll and we'll see who the true overrated guitar bastard in rock is! :madra:
My nomination is for Ted Nugent who, between political rants, seems to be living under an illusion that he's viewed as some kind of guitar hero for the masses. And he does seem to have some kind of good guitar playing reputation with some people, which I can't really understand how he achieved.The reason I nominate him, firstly his tone which is awful, he's always calling people soulless but it's his tone that's the most soulless of all. His chops are terrible too, if guitar playing is a language Ted's guitar speaks gibberish, just like he does in English. His songwriting and riffs are also really, really weak as well. I think there's one album that's not bad, the first one from back in 1975, and a couple of songs after that, everything else is forgettable bullshit for the most part.

Ok that's my nomination, who's your nomination for most overrated guitarist in rock?

Joe Perry. I don't get why so many people love him but overlook Brad Whitford, who is a far better guitarist IMO.

Technique-wise.  But his songwriting and arrangement is amazing.

Rock music? Gotta expand that...take out all the references in your rant to Sweaty Teddy and insert the name Allan Holdsworth (especially soul-less). Buckethead has produced nothing memorable. Nugent has something these guitarists lack...feel!!! Give me feel anyday over someone wanking on a guitar without a groove. Virtuosity is impressive but incredibly boring without feel. Holdsworth wins!!!

I feel bad saying this, but I have to go with Carlos Santana.

I appreciate his talent, but I have to say that (for me) a little bit of Santana is more than enough.

No disrespect to Carlos or to his fans, of course.
