What famous guitarist is featured on Michael Jackson's hit "Beat It?"

Answer:

Eddie Van Halen

Eddie Van Halen played an important role in the success of "Beat It" on Michael Jackson's album Thriller. His blazing guitar solo lasted all of 20 seconds and took half an hour to record. He did it for free, as a favor to producer Quincy Jones, while the rest of his Van Halen bandmates were out of town. He told Quincy he would agree to do the solo on three conditions. First, he didn't want to be credited for the work because he didn’t want the other members of Van Halen to find out. Second, he didn't want to be paid, all he wanted was a case of beer in return. Lastly, he wanted Michael to “teach him how to dance someday.
