Pat Thrall is an American rock guitarist. Thrall is a native of the San Francisco area, and began his recording career in 1976.

Thrall has worked with former Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes on the Hughes/Thrall project, and was a member of the Pat Travers Band during the peak of Travers' success. He cowrote one of Travers' biggest hits, a hard-driving tune entitled Snortin' Whiskey, which became one of the most requested songs on American radio in 1980.

Thrall later joined Asia, and played lead guitar for Meat Loaf during that artist's major comeback in the 1990's. He has also recorded with Beyonce, Elton John, Tina Turner, and Dave Stewart, to name a few. Thrall is a very technical guitarist, and has been highly respected among his peers for more than thirty years.
