47Stargazer - Richie Blackmore

One of the best guitarists ever, possibly the most spic song with the killer all guitar solos. It makes near weep that purple and rainbow (all the diff versions) do not get the credit they deserve. But both bands were dispised by the music press for not being flavour of the month or part of some youth movement, ala nirvana, the pistols or bloody guns n roses.
One day, in a hundred years time, people will look upon bands such as deep purple and rainbow as the classical music of their time, they will be revered as the Bach and Beethoven's and the pagganini's that they deserve to be. The rolling stone mag, along with all the others, were and will always be, just bigging up whatever the current trend is coming along next. It's the only way they can stay in circulation. Bloody charetons the lot of em.

55Sympathy For The Devil - Keith Richards
56Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix

Although short, this solo is by far the most emotional I've ever heard. Being a song of eternal piece and solitude, I often cry when I hear it.
