    Wow that list sucks and certainly wasn't done by a guitar player.

    Much better list Coulda.

    I'd also add the very underrated "Outta Love Again."
    And the "5150" solo for sure.

    Just for starters.

    No, Hack, it's not just you. The solo in Ice Cream Man is amazing! For my money, the first Van Halen album is the best rock guitar album ever recorded.

    Will do 10 later but Humans Being has GOT to be on there - the way it just builds and builds and wails - it is orgasmic in every sense of the word.

    D.O.A. !!!

    two best solos EVER! Just have another listen. Absolutely mind blowing. I can't believe no one else mentioned this yet. Second would be the entire song "I'm the One".
