A few years ago, the editors of Guitar World magazine compiled what we feel is the ultimate guide to the 100 Greatest Guitar Solos of All Time. The list, which has been quoted by countless artists, websites and publications around the world, starts with Richie Sambora's work on Bon Jovi's “Wanted Dead or Alive” (Number 100) and builds to a truly epic finish with Jimmy Page's solo on "Stairway to Heaven" (Number 1).
It was on this day in 1976 that Kiss released perhaps their best-known studio album, Destroyer. Paul, Gene, Ace and Peter started work on their fifth studio album in the fall of 1975 at New York City's Electric Lady Studios, getting in only a handful of days of tracking before heading back out on the road for their famous Alive! tour.
