    Slayer's solos are the worst. It like someone strangling a cat.

    I'm pretty sure Kerry King's definition of a solo is "Hold a note while you flail on the whammy bar"

    Also I enjoy solos, just as long as they're taking away from the music. If there are no solos in it, it all tends to mesh in and no song really stands out(In general)

    Some Noteable solos that I really enjoy: Rush's "The Camera Eye" and the entire end of BTBAM's "Selkies: The Endless Obsession"

    The solos are the best part, and the longer the better.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    I would like more instrumental solos, not necessarily just guitars. I would like to hear bass, keys, and guitar and perhaps even a drum solo here & there. I'm not necessarily fond of the traditional 80's style guitar solos. However, I do like non-traditional solos like the guitar on the opening of Mayonnaise by Smashing Pumpkins for instance.

    What do you guys think of Eric Lifeson from Rush? He has some fairly hypnotic leads/solos from time to time.

    Eddie Van Halen(90's), Jimmy Hendrix, Jeff Healey(rip), S.R Vaughan, Eric Clapton(60's),... Slash was a little over-hyped, however, he is still an amazing musician.

    Rock guitar solos are good as long as they are good. Half the time, they end up being my favorite part of a song.

    HOWEVER, drum solos and bass solos are important too. Sometimes people place way too much emphasis on certain kinds of song structures.
