Rocks Greatest Guitar Licks

Today on "The List" I played my choice for 7 of the greatest guitar licks in rock.  With a knowing tip of the hat to Chuck Berry...my list was the following;

Purple Haze-Jimi Hendrix

Life in the Fast Lane-Eagles

Runnin Down a Dream-Tom Petty

Back in Black-AC/DC

Sweet Child of Mine-Guns n’ Roses

Layla-Derek and the Dominos

And, my choice for number one-Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’ by the Rolling Stones-Keith Richards lays down an absolutely 'punchy" riff off the top and the bonus is the Mick Taylor solo in the middle.  It's open for debate...let's go!

you have got to have Black Dog in there, and i could easily put a couple more Zeppelin songs in there. I think long cool woman deserves an honorable mention too. couldn't agreee more with you other choices though, except for maybe the Eagles. don't get me wrong I love joe walsh & i would argue for Rocky Mountain Way. surprised there is nothing here from Stevie Ray or Boston. I think Long Time would also make a good addition.
