Stan Webb:
Stanley Frederick "Stan" Webb (born 3 February 1946) is the frontman and lead guitarist with the blues band Chicken Shack.
People often use the word "underrated". Often the person they describe this way is not underrated at all. Stan Webb certainly fits the bill, in my opinion, as someone that has not received the merit, recognition or praise he deserves. Stan Webb is the most underrated blues guitarist of the British Blues frenzy of the late sixties. Webb was one of the best British blues guitarists of this time period and yet he is not even mentioned on the Wikipedia British Blues page. There is no mention of Chicken Shack either.

Webb was heavily influenced by Freddie King.

Sure, Chicken Shack were not hugely successful, but they were a hugely talented group. Probably everyone knows what happened to Christine Perfect. When she left Chicken Shack, she was replaced by Paul Raymond. Paul Raymond, Andy Silvester, and Dave Bidwell all left Chicken Shack and moved on to Savoy Brown and played on "Street Corner Talking".

Stan Webb is still active at 70. Happy birthday Stan!!!
