This is an offshoot of the "favorite guitarist" thread. Pretty self explanatory. My favorite solos are:
David Gilmour (Floyd) - "Your Possible Pasts"
Mantas (Venom) - "Buried Alive"
Michael Denner / Andy LaRoque (King Diamond) - "A Mansion In Darkness"
Zakk Wylde (Ozzy) - "No More Tears"
Scott Gorham / Brian Robertson (Thin Lizzy) - "Bad Reputation"
Dave Murray / Adrian Smith - "Sea Of Madness" or "Alexander The Great"
Gregor Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) - "Embers Fire"
But my all time favorite solo has to be, oddly enough, the guitar solo in Tears For Fears "Shout" - it's so simple, but it fits the song perfectly.
"Nothin' out there but God's little creatures - more scared of you than you are of them"  - Warren, "Just Before Dawn"

Rev. Powell

Stanley Jordan's "Moon River" -- the best example IMO of his amazing ability to play melody and harmony at the same time on a single guitar.  It's constructed like a mini-symphony.

I also have to add the solo Angus Young played at AC/DC's concert in Copenhagen in the summer of 2009.
