Last week, with a riffing €25 Golden Discs voucher on offer, I asked you to name your favourite guitar solo.
You answered in your tens.
But there could be only one winner.
Paranoid Android by Radiohead

I’m gonna go with Paranoid Android by Radiohead. A great guitar solo can only really work in the context of the entire composition of the song. There have been many amazing solos but sometimes they can feel out of place. Jonny Greenwood’s efforts truly capture the mania that influenced some of Thom Yorke’s lyrics in the track. I also completely lost my poo rocking to it when they played the Point a few years back. What a gig!
Marquee Moon by Television
Tom Verlaine’s solo at 5 minutes. Taught me a few things about phrasing, melody and a good clean tone. Also like Richard Lloyd’s solo after it!
Still In Love With You by Thin Lizzy

In fact, two great solos in the one, epic, timeless song
