I can't argue with the top 3.
Happy to see "Blinded By The Light" in there too.
I had forgotten what a great song "Stop" is (Jane's Addiction.)
Damn those guys rocked.
Love that they included SRV's solo on "Telephone Song."
cool article, this is one of my favorites-T-rex Monolith
No Mick Ronson? Travesty.
the fact that the live version of "Rock Bottom"(from Strangers in the Night) isn't
on that list, renders the list invalid.
I thought Frank Zappa's "Willie the Pimp" might get a tip of the beak.
White Room Cream
I didn't know Whole Lotta Love had wah in it
Allen Collins', Needle and the Spoon.
Miles Davis Agharta
I can't believe Skip Pitts didn't make it on at all. Theme From Shaft, anyone?
Someone is paying attention
Sooo many incredible 'wah-wah' solos in the funk/soul/ & fusion world...
Wouldn't even know where to start ...
What??? No Kirk Hammett jokes???
I'm guessing those surveyed, or however they decided, thought Pitts's "Shaft" work wasn't really a solo but part of the overall rhythm arrangement. Which could also be why, say, Wah Wah Watson didn't make the cut for his excellent wah-rhythm work for the Temptations' "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" or "Cloud Nine" . . .
The Zakk Wylde choice is odd. Zakk was an excellent player in his day but I've never even heard that song they chose.

Voodoo Child (Slight Return) is still so far in front of the others that it could be the entire top 10 by itself.
I'd have to put 25 or 6 to 4 in the top 5.
Maybe some day the Wah solo will come back in style!
I don't believe there are 25 great ones to choose from.
