Solos here are actually or any soloing done here Metellica is just getting there boots on the ground and Pink Floyd is just trying to do another repeater to Dark side. These are not really solos here there just what the band needs to get to the next watering hole. These are just tidbits mire blinks in the void they spilled.

I actually like the echoes one better From pompeii, I think it's the beginning of the psychedelia,great songs that floyd are known for. If anyone's interested http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGwPSPIhohk

Soloing on your first or on with big productions is a bit surprising considering these two ax members should be quiet surprised? I think it should be left the professionals. What does the audience want to remember that his solos where trippie. So if it’s your first time out on headliners or you got baggage you want to brag about you can really confuse influencing the new guitar players, - not air players - to the introduction of guitar playing. Both band needs these guitarist whether it would turn out the same who knows its up to the engineer to make the final cut whether you know it or not. The CD or vinyl is going to be remembered not the individual on this comparison.

This is definately David's best solo. I can't believe anyone actually voted for KH

Comfortably Numb is in my top 5 all-time list of favorite solos. Gilmour says more in one note than a lot of other guitar players can muster into an entire song.

Today and two days ago have been the hardest decision of the entire poll... It was close, but comfortably numb wins.

I've always wondered when the readers originally compiled this list, if they meant both Master Of Puppets solos (which has a beautiful one by Hetfield) or just the fast one. Guess it doesn't matter, I find neither greater than Comfortably Numb :P
