    I'll create the poll tonight with today's suggestions.

    OK, pure and simple, greatest rock and roll sax solo of all time, what do a got?

    The rules are you need give a youtube link with your suggestion, and you cannot give me a Miles Davis like jazz suggestion. This needs to be a rock and roll song, and it needs to be fairly familiar to the posters on this board.

    I listened to this in the car today, and I honestly wondered if there was a better one ever performed or recorded.

    I will start with the The Big Man and Jungleland.



    Thank you ahead of time for your suggestions.

    Baker Street was also my first thought.

    It's short, but Bobby Keys on "Brown Sugar" ain't bad

    Wham! "Careless Whisper"

    Probably not the greatest, but worth an honorable mention.

    My first thougth was "Urgent" (how did Junior Walker end up with those guys?) but I'll add this:

    Lee Allen - Walkin' With Mr. Lee

    The immortal Lee Allen blows a pretty hot solo in The Blasters' awesome "So Long Baby Goodbye":
