Led Zeppelin Top Guitar Solo Poll
Britain's Telegraph.co.uk is reporting that Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven" has been voted the best guitar solo of all time. The anthem beat the likes of Guns N' Roses' "Paradise City" and Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child" to best air guitar moment. Despite never being released as a single, the 1971 song remains one of the most-played rock songs ever, and has been covered by everyone by artists from Dolly Parton to Rolf Harris. Other tracks in the top 10 include The Eagles' "Hotel California", Cream's "Crossroads", Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train" and Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody". Almost 2,000 readers of Total Guitar magazine, including music teachers and professional guitarists, voted in the poll. The magazine's editor Stephen Lawson said: "I'm not surprised that 'Stairway to Heaven' is number one - not only is Jimmy Page's solo incredibly ballsy and a little bit flash, but it is also brilliantly structured." Top 10 guitar solos, according to readers of Total Guitar magazine: 01. Led Zeppelin ? "Stairway to Heaven" 02. Van Halen - "Eruption" 03. Guns N' Roses - "Paradise City" 04. The Eagles - "Hotel California" 05. Metallica - "Enter Sandman" 06. Cream - "Crossroads" 07. Jimi Hendrix - "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" 08. Ozzy Osbourne - "Crazy Train" 09. Free - "All Right Now" 10. Queen - "Bohemian Rhapsody"
