My favorite is "These Are The Days Of Our Lives". It's just beautiful, And is one of the main reasons that I love the song as much as I do.

You read my mind, I also find it a bit haunting in a way

I'm not sure if anyone's heard it... but the guitar solo on Blag, a smile song, is EXCELENT.

Blag was what evolved into Brighton Rock I think. And he didn't play the spanish guitar solo on innuendo. So my favourite would probably be The Invisible Man.

Yeah, about Brighton rock, you're right. It started out as playing around on "Blag" and then it grew when Queen did "Son and Daughter" (you can REALLY hear the early Brighton Rock in that) and then, obviously, came the actual Brighton Rock.

The album version of 'I Want It All' is brilliant, as is the album version of 'Hammer To Fall'.

My all time favourite guitar solo of Brian's is probably on 'These Are The Days Of Our Lives' - it carries so much emotion and feeling, and sends a shiver down my spine everytime I hear it

'You Don't Fool Me' also has an amazing solo, as does 'Drtiven By You'. There are just so many to choose from - 'Bijou' is another favourite, although I don't know if you would count that as a solo
