Jimi is/was the greatest guitarist of all time. He was so good that God took him from us at age 27. Jimi Hendrix knew how he wanted his music to sound, and INVENTED things to get that sound -- wah-wah, fuzz, feedback. Go get the Purple Box Set (expensive, but worth every single cent) and hear 4 full CD's of live and studio music that will make you understand what is Jimi!!
