          Somebody mentioned Randy Rhodes on Tribute playing Children of the Grave, but what about that masterpiece on Suicide Solution? That one was pretty good.

          The first guy mentioned Pink Floyd. To his list I'll add Comfortably Numb, Mother and Time.

          There's another guy I really like, by the name of Iommi. Try "I Go Insane" on for size. Epic!

            franklin the reason i did not mention tribute or fused or any sabbath and sabbath related songs is that we know we all love all of the songs....this thread is supposed to be for songs that not alot of people have heard

                  Fair enough. However, my comment about Tribute was directed to another writer who did mention Tribute, so I simply added a reference to Suicide Solution. I also picked up on your Pink Floyd theme and added three of my favorites.

                  And I'll bet you that despite the fact this is a Black Sabbath forum, fewer than 25% of the participants on this forum have bought Iommi's Fused, so I would imagine that quite a few here have never heard "I Go Insane."

                  BTW, I know it's really old, but I still really love Deep Purple's Child in Time too. Blackmore was really good, back in the day. And speaking of Deep Purple, I love the interplay between the guitar and the piano in Junkyard Blues on Rapture of the Deep.

                    Stairway to Heaven (Yeah, a no-brainer)
                    Baba o' Riley (The Who)
                    All Along the Watchtower (Jimi's version)
                    Riders on the storm (A Keyboard solo but still teh best eva)

                    Anyway those are pretty much standards, I don't really like solos to be honest, only the very good ones can I really enjoy.

                            Not in the mood to list all of them, but I will mention the five solos that influenced me more than any other at any part of my life:

                            1) Pink Floyd - Marooned
                            2) Judas Priest - Run Of The Mill
                            3) Judas Priest - Before The Dawn
                            4) Bad Company - The Way I Choose
                            5) Steve Vai - For The Love Of God

                              Kirt Hammett from Metallica
                              Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath
                              Zakk Wylde from Ozzy/Black Label Society

                              Vic always says 'killing is my business, and business is good'.. He can play the symphony of destruction, after all the worlds needs a hero because the system has failed. Vic is on the killing road to Hangar 18, and he will Take No Prisioners on this holy wars.
