This month we present the 100 greatest guitar solos in rock. We've whittled scores of great lead guitar displays down to a varied, impressive list, with plenty of less obvious entries, as well as the more familiar classics (because some solos are just too iconic to ignore!). From the early likes of Scotty Moore (Elvis's guitarist), Danny Cedrone (Bill Haley axe-man) and Chuck Berry, through to Eddie Van Halen, Ritchie Blackmore, Brian May and many more, it's a mammoth celebration of the mighty six-string. You'll find insights into these great solos from the guitarists who played them (Mark Tremonti, Michael Schenker, Mick Ralphs, Joe Satriani...), as well as other stars (for instance, we've got Kirk Hammett waxing lyrical about Jeff Beck). All that, and brand new interviews with Jimmy Page and Tony Iommi, plus an in-depth look at the 'replacement killers' – those guitarists who replaced iconic players and took on their equally iconic solos (Ritchie Blackmore replacement Steve Morse, Ace Frehley's alternative Tommy Thayer, and many others besides). If you play the guitar, you'll love it. And if you don't play, it just might tempt you to pick one up.
But that's not it. You'll also find the story of 'Paradise' by Dr Feelgood and a comprehensive buyers guide to 10cc, as well as interviews with John Lydon, Tyketto, Placebo and promising new blues rockers The Greasy Slicks. All that, and the ultimate rock reviews section, featuring new album reviews for Alter Bridge and Blackberry Smoke, and reissues for Lou Reed and Ian Hunter among many others. Plus our free 13-track CD of killer new guitar heroes. All in Classic Rock 229, Enjoy!
