Grateful Dead was my first favorite American band. Blew my mind as a teenager...maybe it's where I grew up, but Greenwich High from 2000-2004 was huge into the Dead. I don't really see them as underrated.
Sure he gets alot od respect, but not nearly enough for his talent. When Jack White and Joni Mitchell (wtf?) routinely are listed as "better guitarist" than David Gilmour, there is something seriously wrong.

1) David Gilmour is not at all underrated. Everyone knows of all his brilliance.
2) I know Pink Floyd is your band, so I understand why you still maintain he's underrated, because he's just too good to ever receive enough accolades in your eyes. I guess that's why I have John Frusciante as underrated as well.
