Eddie wins the battle easily! Don't forget we're talking kick ass here.
Eddie won in the first :52 of the song.

But that's the intro, not the solo. This poll is about the solo. Eddie's solo in Mean Street song is awesome but it's pitted against one of Alex's best ever.
Eddie's solo in Mean Street is one of his best too.



It's certainly a good solo. His tone is perfect and it fits the song perfectly. But I wouldn't rank it in his top 10.
It's pretty short, actually.  2:25-2:45.

ETA:  In fairness, I think we need to add from 3:20 on, the outro.   Which is epic.

Ed for the win when that's thrown in.

But this poll is about the solo, not the the whole song or the intro and outro. If we're talking the whole song then for me, Ed wins. Solos only? Alex.
