YES DEFINITELY!!! Dave Navarro with Jane's Addiction
1988. Never liked heavy metal. But this riff was so heavy and the solo was so scorching you had to give credit where credit was due.
I'm more into rhythm guitar than lead guitar solos. Also I've never really been into the shreddy stuff much, especially late 1980s. I feel like most of them are just stuck on replicating Eddie Van Halen's Eruption from 1978. I like Eruption but the rest, umm...yeah well...
I guess my pick for this timeframe would be Kirk Hammett's solos in Metallica's One (1988):
