One of my favorites is "Goodbye to Love" Tony Peluso solo.
I’d like to give honourable mentions to Al Stewart’s “Year Of The Cat”, and Rod Stewart’s “I Was Only Joking”. Very iconic songs for both artists, and perhaps Al’s song is more remembered for the solo in some circles, but they’re both favourites of mine - both to listen to and play, although I still haven’t quite got down Rods one.
And here’s one of my all time favourites that deserves mention in here.
Summer Lightning by Camel
according to Richard Lloyd, he had the rare ability to play phrases exactly the same way, anytime he wanted to. So on this track, he overdubbed the solo like 10 or 20 times. some very large number.
Spooky by Atlanta Rhythm Section
Oh yeah! This was the first one that popped into my head, but this solo is well known and appreciated...by guitar players at least. Uli is magical!
Commodores - Easy
That's right I posted a Lionel Ritchie song.
The electric eels’ Anxiety
I did not realize that was Jesse Ed Davis.
“...want to run around in random circles, smacking into things with all the hair standing up on my arms”. I can’t stop laughing!!!
This one has a fantastic hook, but the real fun begins at about 3:00 right through the end of the song. It’s a solo outro.
That is a monster solo. Nice pick.
The drum work in “New Drug” is pretty good, too.
Two of my favorite bands back in the day. Always thought it was Mathias Jabs on Lovedrive. Just looked it up and Michael did indeed record on like five songs on the album, including this one. Great stuff. I just recently picked up Song for America (Kansas). Brings back old memories. They were a great band.
Here's my go-to answer for this kind of question, though technically it is a duo (John and George in unison)...
I’ve always loved this one.

If you know Michael's style and tone, you can definitely tell he is playing there. Mathias plays a lot different. That solo screams Michael. You can really hear him on Coast To Coast and Holiday.
The version of Holiday on Best of Rockers and Ballads has more soloing and is much better than the one on Lovedrive in my opinion.
Kansas is a very underrated band and very tight live. They are my all time favorite band. They had some talent.
Watching Masked Singer just now, and realized just as they skipped the solo that Somebody to Love belongs in this thread.
Backwater by The Meat Puppets has always been one of those that gets cranked every time I hear it. The tone, the simplicity, the solo and the outro just begs for more volumne.
The notes played in Eagles " Boys of Summer".
