@1:50 I always loved Larry's guitar style, and this solo really shows it off.
Also, DAT BASS!
@5:40 For obvious reasons. Not the best solo ever, but it sure is hella fast.
@2:32 First of all, it's Tom Motherf*cking Morello. Second, TOM MORELLO. And lastly, did I mention Tom Morello? 'Nuff Said.

One - Kirk Hammet and James Hetfiled. Brilliant solo - especially this performance. (starts ay 6:25)
Free Bird - Allen Collins and Gary Rossington. Words cannot describe it. The chills that ring through your body do a nice job though
And for good measure
Comfortably Numb - David Gilmour. Again, chills, all over my bod-eh!
These are my favourites, the ones that 'move' me. There are way tooo many solos I could list. If no one else lists some of them after a while, I'll add more.

All-time favorite here. May be an obvious choice, but it's just so overwhelmingly beautiful.
Comfortably Numb - a bit obvious, too, but it's on the same line with SCOM, really. Pink Floyd has always been a great influence, inspiration and a band I have loved, maybe it's hereditary in my case. No matter what, Comfortably Numb has one of the most beautiful solos ever.

Black Sabbath - Neon Knights
Black Sabbath - Turn up the Night
Thin Lizzy - Cold Sweat
Thin Lizzy - Cowboy Song
But I've actually been doing a lot of thinking about this subject lately. And the one that I like the most, surprisingly to me, was...
Guns N Roses - Paradise City
I think it's because those other ones are before my time really, and GnR was huge when I was five or six, when I discovered Rock n Roll.

And hell, why not a include a great bass solo too? Cause this is just pro-six-strings fascism
Tom Hamilton is one of the kings of bass. Hands down!

And this next one is the most amazing solo I have ever heard.

Edward Van Halen as well, and Dokken's George Lynch is a power house on guitar
However, if I have to think of one, perhaps the end of Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd, who is DAVID GILMOUR playing, and you see why already chosen too, it's that monumental people know it and love it!

One that comes to mind is the solo in "Endless Rain", it's one of their ballad songs as opposed to their more aggressive stuff, but it's a great solo.

And im not sure who it is, but the guitar and drum solo at the end of Eminem's song "Sing for the moment" is really good.

@ 4:55 the beautiful solo from Hetfield comes in.
@ 2:48 starts a face-melting solo that lasts until 4:21!

I would also concur with Slash's tributes he does live, like the Godfather theme, Pink Floyd and others.
Sometimes it's short and sweet ones that I think are better then the song themselves, case in point ....
Keith Richard (or is it as mentioned here... RON WOOD?? haha) of The Stones, solo in SHATTERED, it's one of the Stones songs that was a jam, you just know it, and in the finished mix a solo was likely added;

8:04 is the beginning of the greatest end to a song I've ever heard, and a very, very underrated solo.

Blackpool '89. The Stone Roses - I Am The Resurrection (live). John Squire starts shredding it up @4:00.
Seminal gig, and the thing I love about the most...I was fookin' there man! At that point I was at the back with my arms all over a lass called Veronica, FKN sweet!

Here, EVH uses Ned Stienbergers headstockless guitar, still done up in Ed's paintstripe scheme, and marked with the 5150 stencil, but needed for transposing with it's special tremolo design

I know it is a bass solo, but please, watch this!
I like it because it's pushing bass beyond boring, repetitive rythm
^pretty damn kick ass too
Do watch them!
