Default What do you think of Jimi Hendrix?

I'm bored, plus we had a Morrison thread so what the hell, why not talk about one of the greatest guitarists of all time.




My personal opinion is that there are a lot of good guitarists, and great ones. Hendrix was a GOD.

He sang the blues. If you take away all the trippy effects, he was a straight-up blues singer and player.

He was Robert Johnson for the 60's counterculture.

My favorite thing he ever did was Band of Gypsys. That stuff has never even been touched, by anyone

Hendrix was a GOD. Top 5 no matter who you ask. Without him you wouldn't have the crazy solos you have now. He is number 2 on my list only behind Duane allman and that is because thousands of people try to play slide and few are good at it. Duane is the best slide player ever and that puts him over hendrix for me.

Default Re: What do you think of Jimi Hendrix?

Hendrix once gave the ultimate compliment to Terry Kath of the band Chicago when he told them that he (Kath) was better than himself.

That's pretty bad ass...

Favorite Hendrix tune is Voodoo Chile (Slight Return).

Absolutely spot on about the blues part. Best part of band of Gypsys at filmore is machine gun. The Three studio albums are amazing. Little wing may be my favorite song ever

Before my time. Never a big enough fan of his music to care to learn more about the guy.

Tried to watch the movie, but Meg Ryan's fried eggs turned me off.

The best R&B Rock guitarist to ever live.
From a personal standpoint he was by most people's opinion, very shy or seclusive, but when
he was on stage he OWNED the crowd and milked it for all it was worth. He really wasn't
as "accepted" by the majority of the U.S. fans, but had a cult like following. He was a major
superstar in the UK, and it wasn't until after his death that the largest percentage of American
Rock fans started to realize his musical Genus. ...sadly, another talented entertainer who
killed himself by his addictions, but he left an eternity of his music from just a short period
of time on the earth.

Spot on !

I can never get enough of this clip of JH doing 12 String Blues. Man sounds like
he's channeling Robert Johnson.

That's a great list, also heard about an old story where Eric Clapton was pissed and refused to play with Hendrix at a night club where Hendrix's manager put him on stage with Clapton. He basically made Clapton look like a noob and he wanted none of it.

One of my favorite songs Spurt, also very well done on Hendrix part. His guitar playing skills are unmatched by almost anyone I can thing of. Sure you got great solo guys out there but, Hendrix was a monster on another level.

Heard the same story....Clapton once denied it...But old timers swear it's true...If it is true i can't blame Clapton...Any guitarist of that era would shrink in his presence...
