Electrophile Posted April 16, 2011 Share Posted April 16, 2011 http://www.music-news.com/shownews.asp?H=20-greatest-guitar-solos-named&nItemID=40650 Personally I can't stand that song (most of you know that), so I don't care about its placement, although I'm sure most of you here will bitch about it, but the most egregious thing on this list is the song that came in at #1. Blackbird, not by The Beatles but by Alter Bridge, who were essentially Creed cast-offs. I don't know how the hell they got voted higher than David Gilmour, Joe Walsh, Jimi Hendrix, Mark Knopfler or Jimmy Page, but I'm sure it's a funny story. The final list (18 of 20 are by veteran artists): 1.Blackbird - Alter Bridge (Mark Tremonti & Myles Kennedy) 2.Eruption - Van Halen (Eddie Van Halen) 3.Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses (Slash) 4.November Rain - Guns N' Roses (Slash) 5.Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd (Pulse: Live) (David Gilmour) 6.Hollow Years - Dream Theater (Live at Budokan) (John Petrucci) 7.Under a Glass Moon - Dream Theater (John Petrucci) 8.Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin (Jimmy Page) 9.Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd (Gary Rossington & Allen Collins) 10.Tornado of Souls - Megadeth (Marty Friedman) 11.Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix 12.For the Love of God - Steve Vai 13.All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix 14.Hotel California - Eagles (Joe Walsh & Don Felder) 15.Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits (Mark Knopfler) 16.Since I've Been Loving You So Long - Led Zeppelin (Jimmy Page) 17.Still Got the Blues For You - Gary Moore 18.Beat It - Michael Jackson (Eddie Van Halen) 19.Motorcycle Emptiness - Manic Street Preachers (James Dean Bradfield) 20.Aqualung - Jethro Tull (Martin Barre) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
