What is your favorite guitar solo of all time?

It's a difficult question,maybe your top 2 or 3 that year after year blow you away and raise the hair on your head and move your soul inside.
Walter Rossi!
Great suggestion. Haven't listened to him in years
Has a unique guitar voice and deserves mention in this thread

The short solo in service to a great pop song is almost a separate subject unto itself. I'd also choose the Rundgren example you cite, and I'd add Dave Davies' (Kinks) solo from "I'm Not Like Everybody Else", Dave Edmunds'(Rockpile) solo on "So It Goes", and Terry Kath's (Chicago) solo on "25 or 6 to 4" to that list.


PS two more from my hero, Lindsey Buckingham:

"Go Your Own Way" from Live @ Bass Performance Hall
"(This is The) Time" from Out of the Cradle
I have a lot of favorite solos but the most hair raising is the original master recording Mobile Fidelity Utradisc II Muddy Waters Folk Singer. The dynamics from low to high are definitely hair raising.
Leslie West, "Don't Look Around" simply smokes, he is my all time favorite geetar man
