52 Stargazer - 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.

53 Sympathy For The Devil - Keith Richards
54 War Pigs - Tony Iommi
55 Second Heartbeat - Synyster Gates

Best Avenged Sevenfold solo

Vote for this, can't see this down at 61

56 Little 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.

57 Floods - Dimebag Darrel

This solo does have some fast playing like many other metal solos but it contains an emotional feel that many of the other solos do not have.

Truly spectacular, it's so hard to find a guitar solo with exceptional skill, creativity, and emotion all at the same time. The outro is the second half.

This is my favourite solo, ever. I don't understand how this is only in the 50's, at the very least it should up in the 20's, it is simply amazing.

Its simply breathtaking!
