Eric Clapton--I Shot the Sheriff (there used to be a video shown on VH-1 of this, from some concert in the 80's. Not sure which version, but the solo was killer)

David Gilmour, Pink Floyd--Comfortably Numb (from Delicate Sound of Thunder)

Stephen Malkmus, Pavement--Fin (from Brighten the Corners)

Stephen Malkmus--1% of 1 (from Pig Lib)

Neil Young--Like A Hurricane (live from Weld)

The Edge, U2--All I Want Is You (R&H studio version)

Peter Visser, Bettie Serveert--White Dogs (from the Log 22 album)

Lou Reed/Sterling Morrison(?), The Velvet Underground--Oh! Sweet Nuthin' (from Loaded)

Tom Verlaine/Richard Lloyd, Television--Marquee Moon (any list that doesn't have this is automatically invalid)

Kirk Hammett, Metallica--Fade to Black (from Ride the Lightning)

Note: I can't possibly pick something out of Hendrix's discography. Maybe the entirety of the Band of Gypsies album?

Guitar solos are overrated. Most are just wank, but here are a few that stand out to me, not necessarily because they're great or anything, but just because I think they add something to the song:

Weezer - Tired Of Sex
The Cars - Just What I Needed
Steely Dan - Kid Charlemagne
Prince - Purple Rain
Pearl Jam - Alive
Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven
David Bowie - Moonage Daydream
Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb
Wilco - At Least That's What You Said
Derek And The Dominoes - Layla

OK, at least I managed to name ten. Couldn't keep Layla off of there.

I refuse to put down anything from Edge or Neil Young on principle. I barely consider any of Edge's solos to be solos. They're just extensions of the melody, really, and Neil Young...well...he was never much of a soloist. Cortez The Killer is awesome.

Also, it's incredibly cliche but the solo in Freebird actually does kick ass.

No "Ball & Biscuit" mentions yet? No "One Big Holiday" mentions yet?

I don't really have a Top 10/20, but one solo in particular comes to mind:

Freebird- Lynyrd Skynyrd

I hate November Rain.

Comfortably Numb's solo is to me the greatest moment in rock history.
The Moonage Daydream solo is astrofuckingnomical.
The Fly, live from Boston.

It would take me quite a while to come up with a list, but this one immediately comes to mind:

James Dean Bradfield's solo in The Everlasting (by the Manic Street Preachers)

It's very simple, but it fits the song so beautifully.

Oh, and the solo in Sultans of Swing, by the Dire Straits, more so if it's the Alchemy version.
