Flaming Metal

In honor of the "discovery" of Metal Skool, a list of the greatest guitar solos in rock and roll history, with videos. Only thing is the include solos from songs like "Cherub Rock" and "Smells Like Teen Spirit", examples of solos that have great hooks, but don't require as much technical proficiency as "Stairway to Heaven" or "November Rain" (I'm serious!) So they seem to have a pretty liberal standard for "great", but I'm not complaining.

Nothing from Slash?

No solo stuff it would appear. But he lost his mojo when he left GnR anyway.

Man, that's just wrong. Slash and Eddie Van Halen have to be on the top 5, period. No way any Nirvana makes the cut.
