What are rocks most underrated guitar solos?

So, Casey and I were talking today about some of rock's most underrated guitar solos.  I threw out the dude; I don't even know his name, who played on Two Tickets to Paradise.  Mike countered with Reeling in the Years from Steely Dan.  Elliot Randall's playing was certainly stellar, but underrated.  So my question is...what guitar solos would you introduce into the discussion?

I'd like to nominate Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple performing Highway Star.

Boston- Hitch a Ride end solo... Tom Scholz/Barry Godreau Styx- Crystal Ball end solo... Tommy Shaw? Might've been James Young I'm not sure. As for Robin Trower The Daydream and Too Rolling Stoned are 2 of my favorites. Free- Mr Big Paul Kossof as well as Andy Fraser's bass solo. Riot-Here we come again and Narita ..Mark Reale Gary Moore-Empty Room. .live in Stockholm 1987 Thin Lizzy- The Cowboy Song... Scott Gorham/Brian Robertson Thin Lizzy-The Rocker.. Eric Bell UFO-Rock Bottom ..Michael Schenker Yngwie Malmsteen-Black Star Rainbow-A Light in the Black.. Ritchie Blackmorex Rush-Limelight.. Alex Lifeson There's more, but these are some of my personal favorites ,..Of course,some of these probably aren't underrated at all.

The cover of "Good Golly Miss Molly has 2 very good solos done by John Fogerty that are not talked about very often.
