    Thanks. In my uncultured youth I was a rebel and didn't label my videos, now it has been pulled and I look like a fool.

    Artist is Langhorns, song is "Las Vegas Fist Fight" from Mission Exotica, 2003 on the wonderfully-named Bad Taste Records.

    at 2:24, things really turn up the heat for this song already on 11 (Keep in mind, this is from 1971).

    This solo which starts around 3.10 and goes for a couple of minutes is fantastic, imo.[i don't much like the song itself though.] It's slow, emotional, and long.

    Despite the video saying this is Queen, its a Brian May solo track. Solo starts around 2.20.

    Stan the man should have more recognition for the great rocking records he made. This one has a few solos, some great licks and then a barrage of riffing...

    From 1993 'Dream Harder; album by The Waterboys:
    Preparing To Fly:
    2:58 for the set up (preceding chorus) or 3:22 until end of song for an all time favourite guitar solo...
    I've always assumed it was Mike Scott but Chris Bruce also credited on lead/rhythm guitars

    Lionel Richie - "Running With The Night"

    Steve Lukather's killer outro solo starts just after the 4 min mark and runs almost 2min until the end.

    I still say Frank Marino did the best version of Purple Haze. It's brutal....

    My favorite guitar solo, Dave Davies on the Kinks’ She’s Got Everything

    Look in around 1:10

    Absolute energetic trash, the way all guitar solos should be.

    Neil Young's solo in "Rockin in the Free World" is one of his best ones

    Roy Buchanan - Roy's Bluz...1976..

    From 3 mins 10 secs until the end of the vid is only what i can descibe as 'sensational orgasmic wizardry' from Roy....The way he tickles those strings, OH MAN!.....With the exception of Danny Gatton, its hard to think if there has ever been a better virtuoso of the Telecaster guitar than Roy.

    An absolute all time classic...Lynyrd Skynyrd with Freebird, during that crazy hot UK summer in 1976, at Knebworth Festival....Rolling Stones were headliners but it was LS that stole the show...Allen Collins solo commences at 6 mins 55 secs and you just don't want it to ever end.
