U may not agree, but I think that it is in "Let's Go Crazy", listen to the workout he gives his guitar!

B. Humphreys says:
I'm thinking Seven nation army is a good primitive heavy riff. Also The Stooges Gimme Danger is pretty evil!

Not EVIL, just the greatest guitarist that ever lived, look no further than Jerry Garcia, aka the grateful dead.

tony iommi is in my opinion one of the greatest but most often overlooked guitarists there is . Black sabbaths sabotage album from which symptom of the universe comes from is my favourite sabbath album but if you want to hear tony at his best listen to fused which he made with glenn hughes. last years heaven and hell tour was brilliant the man just gets better

The Baron says:
`Back In Black`-AC/DC and one a lot of people probably wouldn`t know-Bachman Turner Overdrive-`Sledgehammer`. Would agree with the shout for `Cigarettes`-City Boy as well. If only for the chorus riff.

BTO nice one, what about Rock Candy `Montrose`
