    This is a good topic for Music Only since it can involve a lot of guitar players from other bands beside VH. I'm moving it there now.

    I can think a few other guitar players with great guitar riffs in songs....

    EVH - Unchained (VH)

    George Lynch - Too High To Fly (Dokken)

    Zakk Wylde - No More Tears (Ozzy)

    Ted Nugent - Don't Tread On Me (Damn Yankees)

    Shit, here's another category I could go off on all day... at the moment, my top 10 riffs would probably include:

    Ed - Unchained (the absolute most perfect rock 'n' roll riff ever written)
    Jimi Hendrix - Little Wing
    Jimmy Page - (pick one) The Immigrant Song or Black Dog
    Chris DeGarmo/Michael Wilton - (pick one) Empire or I Don't Believe in Love
    Jerry Cantrell - Man in the Box
    Glenn Tipton/KK Downing - The Hellion/Electric Eye
    Criss Oliva (Savatage) - Mentally Yours
    Ace Frehley/KISS - Calling Dr. Love
    Stevie Ray Vaughan - (pick one) Couldn't Stand the Weather or Riviera Paradise
    John Petrucci (Dream Theater) - Pull Me Under

    Top three riff-meisters IMO:

    Eddie Van Halen
    Angus or Malcolm Young (whoever comes up with the riffs)
    Jimmy Page

    I forgot Vivian Campbell, "Caught in the Middle" and "Rainbow in the Dark".
    Just about any AC/DC song (my fave being "TNT")

    A good question (maybe for another thread) would be: What are the ingredients for a great riff??

    Holy shit... how the fuck did I leave out Randy?!!

    What a dumbass!

    EDIT:

    Randy Rhoads - "Diary of a Madman"/"SATO"/"Flyin' High Again"
    (couldn't pick just one!)

    I shall now listen to Diary of a Madman 5 times in its entirety as penance.

    I agree with you there...!
    I spoke to his mum recently...lovely lady!
    and I was planning to visit his grave this weekend..
    All their classic work have great riffs..but also like their later stuff with John Sykes:
    - Thunder and Lightning
    - Cold Sweat
    Marko

    The paper called it suicide
    A bullet from a forty-five
    Nobody cared and nobody cried
    Don't that make you feel sad?
