What's the best guitar solo of all time?
To me, it's Randy Rhodes's solo in Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train". It's just so perfectly composed that, like great classical music, it actually elevates me to another plane of existence every time I hear it.
Vernon Reid's solo in Living Color's "Cult of Personality". His playing is just completely insane, yet he makes it work within the structure of the song. It's like a rabid beast being held within a cage that's barely strong enough to hold it.
Kirk Hammett's outro in Metallica's "Fade to Black". It's not his fastest or most intricate work, but it's so effortlessly melodic that I could put it on repeat and listen to it all day.
