Scott Hill from Fu Manchu.
Jimmy Page, if you throw in the ones he stole.
Actually even if you throw OUT the ones he stole.
Malcolm and Angus
Excellent, dark horse candidate! Very high quality although of course one half of one Sabbath song has as many riffs as the Kinks' whole career...which is why my candidate cannot lose!
Although a lot of his material is more compositional based, Steve Vai writes some monster riffs and many songs can contain a bunch.
A few left field choices are Brian Tatler from Diamond Head and Bruce and Rick from Trouble.
What is this half hour medley of leftover riffs you speak of ?
Heavy Riff-master Matt Pike of Sleep and High on Fire.
I concur the correct answer is Iommi.
Pastichio Medley on the Zero single... my memory exaggerated. It’s only 23 minutes.

I'm gonna have to go with Neil Young on this one.
So many, and not your average riffs.
Eddie VH, Randy Rhoads, Dave Mustaine
Tim Sult from Clutch
Scott Holiday of Rival Sons
Andrew Stockdale from Wolfmother
I need that set
yep, that is my vote
I agree that Iommi is probably the best answer but Ritchie Blackmore deserves some consideration.
Another Iommi vote here.
...been following this thread and (correct me if I'm wrong), one name I've not seen is Alex Lifeson (maybe not the "best", but well worth a shout out). Rush had many excellent, catchy, heavy riffs rom 74-80 (and beyond, but I'm one of those earlier era Rush fans. lol).
If Ritchie is in the mix, add Alex! (I am a Blackmore fan).
