30 I Can't Quit You Baby - The Rolling Stones

Eric Clapton played lead guitar. He was recording his album I Still Do at the same studio where the Stones were recording Blue and Lonesome. - Gg2000

31 Dirty Laundry - Don Henley

The first guitar solo was played by his (at the time) former bandmate Joe Walsh. The second solo was played by Steve Lukather from Toto. Look at the credits for that song; it's more or less an all-star cast if you're a music fan. - Gg2000

32 No More Lonely Nights - Paul McCartney

I remember listening to this on All the Best and thinking, "Wow, that solo sounds like something David Gilmour would do". And sure enough, I looked it up, and it was David Gilmour. That shows you how distinctive his sound is. - Gg2000

33 Genius in France - Weird Al Yankovic

The song itself is a style parody of Frank Zappa, so Weird Al brought in Frank's son Dweezil to play the guitar solos on the song. His guitar work takes the whole thing up five notches, which says a lot. - Gg2000

34 Fashion - David Bowie

The guitar solos on this song were played by Robert Fripp of King Crimson. He's contributed to several other Bowie songs as well. - Gg2000
