The Eagles' "Hotel California" has been voted the home of the greatest guitar solo in history.
The statement was issued by Guitarist magazine, which received 5,000 responses from readers to compile the chart. The classic solo crafted by Joe Walsh and Don Felder epitomizes the stadium rock sound of the '70s and has served air guitarists well since its inception in 1976.
"Eruption" by Eddie VanHalen, Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb," "Crossroads" by Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Chile," rounded out the Top 5.
