There are not many guitarist (in the last 20 years) that can touch Jonny Greenwood. Too bad he doesn't get much chance to shine anymore. His live solo on "I Might Be Wrong" is incredible! then they had to muck it up on the album with all the techno stuff.

Honorable Mention...
Lets Go Crazy - Prince

According to Rolling Stone these are the "coolest" guitar solos of all time. I might agree with a couple but really?

1. “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” Guns N’ Roses
2. “Freebird,” Lynyrd Skynyrd
3. “One,” Metallica
4. “Comfortably Numb,” Pink Floyd
5. “Marquee Moon,” Television
6. “Crossroads,” Cream
7. “Purple Rain,” Prince
8. “Machine Gun,” Jimi Hendrix
9. “Ball and Biscuit,” The White Stripes
10. “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” The Beatles
11. “Stairway to Heaven,” Led Zeppelin
12. “Eruption,” Van Halen
13. “November Rain,” Guns N’ Roses
14. “Alive,” Pearl Jam
15. “Paranoid Android,” Radiohead
16. “Maggot Brain,” Funkadelic
17. “Fortunate Son,” Creedence Clearwater Revival
18. “Time,” Pink Floyd
19. “Hotel California,” Eagles
20. “Cinnamon Girl,” Neil Young
21. “Yellow Ledbetter,” Pearl Jam
22. “Telegraph Road,” Dire Straits
23. “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed,” Allman

bono, i like this list a lot. very little on this list would i dispose of. would MY list be different? maybe, probably. but it doesn't change the fact that most if not all of these are great solos.

Excellent choices eggman. I would like to add "From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea" to your list of Cure songs.
