Contact Music has another list -- this one touting the greatest guitar solos of all time, man, all freaking time. We are so there, and of course we will bitch.
The Top 10 looks like this:
1. Stairway to Heaven - Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin)
2. Eruption - Eddie Van Halen (Van Halen)
3. Freebird - Allen Collins and Gary Rossington (Lynyrd Skynyrd)
4. Comfortably Numb - David Gilmour (Pink Floyd)
5. All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
6. November Rain - Slash (Guns N' Roses)
7. One - Kirk Hammett (Metallica)
8. Hotel California - Don Felder and Joe Walsh (The Eagles)
9. Crazy Train - Randy Rhoads (Ozzy Osbourne)
10. Crossroads - Eric Clapton (Cream)
"Stairway to Heaven" is probably overrated by this point (for sheer deftness and speed, it's Van Halen's "Eruption" all the way), but he who speaketh against the Zeppelin is foolish with his soul; it's in Leviticus. Or maybe Houses of the Holy.
We're also sure it was simply a big-ass mistake that resulted in Tom Morello being left off the list. Pick your for-instances: "Know Your Enemy" from his work with Rage Against The Machine. "Doesn't Remind Me" from his current gig with Audioslave. Morello's the best guitarist working in rock today. Not bad for a guy in his 40s.
