|My vote goes to: Bohemian Rhapsody, My Life Has Been Saved, In My Defence, Friends Will Be Friends and Hammer To Fall.|
|Back Chat live.|
|You Don't Fool Me
Hammer To Fall (at Wembley'86)
|I Want To Break Free
|Let Me In (Your Heart Again)|
|Whoa whoa whoa folks!
Just look at my name.....hint hint anyone?
Hehe, nah, I'm just teasing. But I really do feel that Brighton Rock has an amazing solo. No, not just amazing, but fucking amazing. It's great what that word can add to a sentence or statement.
I remember reading on best guitar solo's somewhere....Bohemian Rhapsody was of course, in there, but I saw Brighton Rock and nearly pissed myself into oblivion. Good recognition! Woo...now I want some chicken.
|Of course that Brighton Rock :o)) !!|
|These Are The Days Of Our Lives.
Maybe not the best, but one of my favs.
|u don't fool me
a kind of magic -live at wembley
the invisible man
|GREAT KING RAT!!!|
|I would say...
Son & Daughter (beeb version)
Great King Rat
Death On Two Legs
Let Me Entertain You
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Friends Will Be Friends
Gimme The Prize
I Want It All
The Invisible Man
A Winters Tale.
Sorry its such a long list but i like nearly all his long solos.
|Good choice. :)
|Crazy Little Thing Called love
It's so catchy!
|1) NOT Back Chat. That did not belong in the song.
2) NOT Brighton Rock. Excess does not equal greatness.
Now that I'm done being negative :D
1) The Invisible Man
2) Hammer to Fall
3) That acoustic part at the beginning of '39
4) Bohemian Rhapsody
|I agree that excess does not equal anything great....
But Brighton Rock, despite the lengthy solo, is actually rather impressive. I have my cronie pals (ugh, in punk bands....of all things) who are stunned by this. But then again...they are in punk bands, so I'm sure ANYTHING stuns them into pissing their pants and forgetting who they are for an hour, dontcha think? Woo....
Even guitar greats see it as a masterpiece of artistry....but I accept your negativity....oh yes!
|great king rat and brighton rock, also flick of the wrist.|
We Will Rock You.
Heaven For Everyone.
Don't Stop Me Now.
I Want It All.
These Are The Days...
Made In Heaven(the 1st few seconds of the solo are just amazing).
|My vote goes to 'The Millionaire Waltz' absolute bloody genius.|
|Brighton Rock at Hammersmith Odeon'75... I dunno if it's Bri's best solo ever, but it's definitely my fav!|
|The guitar solo in "Put out the fire" is my favourite . Brian recorded that when he was very drunk. "Brighton Rock" is also great. I love the live version on Live Killers. Brian also plays great things in the live versions of "Grazy Little Thing Called Love".|
|My favs are Let Me Live and Save Me. I really have no idea why...|
|Brian's most effective guitar solo is, in my humble opinion, You Don't Fool Me. Absolutley amazing.|

Woo.... cheers Even guitar greats see it as a masterpiece of artistry....but I accept your negativity....oh yes!I don't know. It just seems overdone to have a three-to-four minute solo in the middle of a song that's supposed to be a band effort. I'm not denying that it's impressive, I want to know how his fingers don't split open, but I think he overdid it.
And BIJOU...my GOD. I have holes in my track-changing button from me stabbing it when that song comes on...though it is very pretty for the first minute or so. We'll just have to agree to disagree on those :)
Oh yes...Put Out The Fire is terrific!

Brians best guitar work live has to be from "75" At The Hammersmith Odeon Christmas Concert.

|Brighton Rock is lengthy, I do agree.
I guess it is just a matter of opinion. :)
Cheers to all of you
|Stairway to - oh, sorry! Who wants to live forever has some in of Bri's best fretwork. IMHO.|
|Like 'bomber dan ' said... the Back Chat solo on live at the bowl, sounds great! It blew me away when I first heart it.|
|Resurrection live at the brixton academy is the best live solo i ever heard!|

|Megamike The GREAT
|Sail away Sweet Sister has ALWAYS haunted me.. I LOVE that solo.. it was the FIRST solo I ever learned, and continues to be a moving piece, of course you can't deny Brighton Rock, but Millionaire Waltz has a close second to Sail Away Sweet Sister.|
|Like the post just before mine, I love the "Sail Away Sweet Sister" solo. Alos love:
Brighton Rock - 75 Odeon concert
Death on Two Legs
And the guitar orchestaion of "All Dead, All Dead".
