(Gibson) Amid the hoopla surrounding the launch of his latest CD/DVD, Rock 'n' Roll Party: Honoring Les Paul, guitar god Jeff Beck took some time this week to discuss his favorite guitar solos of all time. Speaking with MusicRadar.com, Beck opined on the difficulty in compiling such a list.

"It's always hard to come up with a definitive list when asked these kind of questions," said Beck. "Because you end up remembering something you'd forgotten almost immediately afterwards. There are a few Jimi Hendrix things that will always figure quite highly for me "Purple Haze" and "All Along the Watchtower" especially but there are two or three others that I really want to mention..."

Gene Vincent and His Blue Caps, "Race with the Devil": "Gene's guitarist, Cliff Gallup, was an absolute genius. There just isn't another word to describe him. I read an interview with him once where he claimed that he never worked out in advance what he was going to play, and the idea that he came up with the two guitar breaks on this song on the spot is just incredible it took me months and months of practice to get anywhere near what he played! There isn't a dropped note to be heard anywhere, and the tone of the solo is just perfect." more on this story
