What's the name of the song playing on the radio during the nighttime battle in "Apocalypse Now"?

During the scene, all you can hear is an awesome guitar solo. It reminded me of Jimi Hendrix, but I'm not sure if that was him. Can anyone help please??

    my bet for the song your looking for might be "the end" or "The Ride of the Valkyries" might also be one to look but it is more musical than anything the because susie Q is not strong with guitar, and " let the good times roll" is an old dance song,

    During the helio flight it was "Flight of the Valkyries" by Wagner (pronounced Vahgner).

    The Hendrix song was during the trip up the river and it was "Purple Haze".
