This Midwestern guitarist, who was born in December of 1946, is known for his wild style of dress and his five-necked guitars. Checkerboard vans (as well as an overall checkerboard motif) and a near-constant baseball cap are his signatures.

Needless to say, it's quite interesting to see him as a youngster and without a hat on his head, revealing a bit of mop-topped 'do. That's some a spiffy jacket, too! His band is known for its power pop and classic rock anthems, and is still going strong after nearly 40 years.

This rocker also owns over 250 guitars, and serves as the primary songwriter in his band. We want you to figure this one out. We need you to guess who this is. In fact, we'd love for you to know the answer.

Figure it out yet, dear reader?
