Default What are your top 3 favorite guitar solos?

I didn't want to say favorite because it is just too hard to mention one. They don't have to be super technical or super fast just your favorite from the way they sound.

1 Stranglehold - Ted Nugent
2. Roller - April Wine (just love the dueling guitar leads)
3. Eruption -Eddie Van Halen

honorable mention Hells Bells and Shook me All Night Long ACDC

Randy Rhoads - Mr. Crowley 2nd solo
EVH - Eruption
Steve Vai - For the Love of God

Neil Young forgot about him. I really like Cinnamon Girl and Hurricane solos too.

1) Hendrix - Bold As Love (Outro Solo)
2) SRV - Tightrope (Outro Solo)
3) Randy Rhoads - Mr Crowley (Outro Solo)

All the songs I chose had a regular middle of the song solo and then a solo taking the song to the end....in each case, the "outro-solo" is stunning.....

Knopfler's Down to the water line.
Vince Gill What the Cowgirls Do.
Van Halen's Eruption is just a bunch of high speed gibberish!
