Floyd’s ‘Comfortably Numb’ chosen as best guitar solo of all time

Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb has the best guitar solo of all time,
according to a new poll chosen by the slack-jawed idiots of Radio Station Planet Rock.

‘…Numb’ was chosen ahead of the opening riff from
the terrible ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ by Guns N’ Roses. Third was Freebird by Lynyrd
Skynyrd, while the Led Zeppelin classic axe fave Stairway to Heaven was in
sixth place.The radio station Planet Rock asked listeners to come up
with a top 40 which included Hotel California and ‘Aqualung’ by Jethro Tull. What annoys about this list is the inclusion of all the usual suspects, ignorning cooking guitarists like Wayne Kramer, John Renbourne… and the solos from every single Sonics record ever. If you ask me, it’s not about technical ability, but fire, passion and inventiveness. So, who would have in your top spots?
