I really like that era, but it seems like only a handful of players from
then have stood the test of time.

A lot of them have been forgotten, for lack of a better term.

Here are some I really liked- Harry K. Cody of Shotgun Messiah, Mick
Sweda of Bullet Boys, and Kee Marcello of Europe.

Not sure if they are doing much these days, but all three could really play.

Do you have any forgotten favorites from that era?

You could just ask Harry.

The band Giant had a guy who could play a little bit. I think his name was Dann Huff. I'm pretty sure his career waned like most of the hair metal guys. Doubtful he couldn't have achieved the lasting success of a band like Whitsnake.
This is sarcasm, right?

Dann Huff became one of the biggest names in Nashville, playing on tons of records and then turning into a producer of massive hit songs and albums.

Kee Marcello would be my main pick. Great player. Vito is awesome but I don’t think of him as forgotten.

Pretty sure Huff has had a long and accomplished career including playing on a lot of albums and producing some.

edit: gtrdave beat me to it

Hard to forget Harry Cody when he's a regular member here
