Well, You all probably heard about the 100 best guitar solos list and read it,
If someone don't know what I'm talking about, here:

I really like the list. I'd agree with most of it but, wow you might wanna go outside and run around now.
#9
I don't fully agree with the list because I'm a complete shredhead, but I do have to give you a thumbs up for going over a variety of styles in your list. It's refreshing to not go down a list of "Zeppelin, Stones, Beatles, Eagles, etc."

edit: grammar

Nirvana is way overated... It's not new or something, but their solos is kinda lack of everything if you ask me.

Not a real fan of Allman Brothers either :\
And I would like to hear "Don't Fear The Reaper" cause I just don't know it.
#17
i was joking when i said nirvana. im sick of people calling them solos! nirvana is my fav band, but i perfer to call them interludes
the only oens that can be considered actual solos are SAPPY and SERVE THE SERVANTS
both amazing solos
