He started this whole trend of 'just make it fast and loud'
But at least it was his own style, not a blatant rip off of anyone else! Legions copied his finger-tapping, deep-dive-wammy-bar and harmonics styles over the next 10 years.

The one solo from Eddie Van Halen that always sticks in my mind is "Hear About It Later" from "Fair Warning", arguably their heaviest album with every track a winner.

How can you call that a bad solo? Jimmy Page is a guitar pioneer, and I like his work. I listen to a lot of Led Zeppelin, and Heartbreaker is an awesome track.

As for the worst solo, I am thinking the guitar solo by Dave Davies in 'All day and all of the night' by The Kinks would be a good contender. Horrible, sloppy, and messy with no real tempo or structure. If you have it then listen to it and I'm sure you will agree!

There are many more out there, but that one is the only exceptionally bad one I can think of right now.

Hey, the Heartbreaker solo is awsome!

Probably Pagey's worst solo is the one in Communication breakdown in Live at the Royal Albert Hall 1970...

Have anyone listened to I follow the sun solo?

John Fogerty in "The Old Man Down the Road". His "comeback" will forever keep me from purchasing anything by CCR. AFAIAC the toast fell on the floor buttered side down.

don't get me wrong jimmy page is a genius, pioneer and one of my favorite song writers.
his playing in this specific solo is just awful! you can hear notes cracking and missed i don't know what he was on when he played that solo

still heartbreaker is an awesome track.

Inthe solo in Heartbreaker, I think the fact that not every note is played perfectly etc and is a bit ragged around the edges give it character, and I think its great. But surely you can't say thats the worst solo you know? It may not be one of Page's best solos, but there are plenty of worse ones lol!
In all seriousness, listen to "All day and all of the night" by The Kinks, and pay attention to the solo. I challenge you to find a worse solo than that! Its even worse than any old CCR.
Although I went and saw John Fogerty when he came here, and it was an absolutely great performance.

Yup, that solo is awful, there are a lot of notes that are played really bad... Pagey was probably drunk!

starts around 1:30. Then end solo is kinda bad too.

I think he was trying so I don't know if it counts. It's so bad it's kinda good/funny.
