    Why exactly ? I mean, other than DTE with Rainbow what has he really done to warrant this kind of accolade ? Not a hater, just find it a bit puzzling…

    DTE was a classic lineup. Besides that, Alcatrazz, MSG & the GB Band, with other great guitarists he’s definitely worthy.

    Nail Hall, well…. Alcatrazz, MSG and his own band, to mentions a few. Besides having a superb voice, of course. I think it’s more than enough to warrant “this kind of accolade”
