a good person who had a troubled life with other people; a cursed life by most standards. He would not have liked anyone to anger any Gods out there, or anyone to put him in the list of damned rock stars, but his influence made great changes in his times, when black people would never have led white people around America during civil right riots, thereby he led by example of how black leadership could exist in the world, even with white people. He played the way he felt was most innovative, and created a sound where he thought the imperfections of the world matched with his playing abilities, and using the imperfections he made greater riffs. His music was inspirational to all leading guitarists at the time, and that must mean something( he did expand the realms of guitar playing not just by the way he played it, but by what he played with). He, like, everyone else from a poor background, did try to make money to survive, and trying to be popular is a way to survive so he did gimmicky things to make it work, even playing in his unorthodox way. He was great and different, and being different sparks controversy. It seems that there is always someone to argue the case of him being the greatest guitarist, but it is the greatest and not neccesarily the best. But why do these hard line haters of Jimi keep comin onto Jimi's website. You don't see this in other sites of the greatest people, like Elvis, Einstein or the Beatles. If you want to hate somebody, hate somebody worthy of that hate. People should not judge someone because they think they don't belong, as Jimi only seems to belong once he died, as he knew. Maybe the debate shouldn't be about Jimi but about the debaters. They seem determined to make his image a battle ground; seeing him as a target for abuse. He was only being himself and did what he could do with what he had. The summer of love may have been influenced by him too, and we should remember what he stood for, peace too, and why do some people miss that point. It is the image and the player and his principles, that made him great, even though you may not see it like that. He was always for peace and harmony.
Jimi Hendrix's greatness is shown by the age that followed him, the peaceful Monteray and Woodstock festivals and the fans from all races. He was,great, hopeful,good, positive,determined, and spiritual. We must remember the situations and difficulties he was under. His life story is astonishing and influential.

The guys above clearly have no taste in REAL music. Just because slash can twiddle about more on a guitar, doesn't mean that they're better at it. It's not how fast u are. It's how inventive u are. Go listen to sum real music like Hendrix, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and sum others.

O and if u think that slash can move about on a guitar, u ent heard of John McLaughlin (Miles Davis Protege).

The baddest guitarist who ever lived. There are people who are endowed with skills, abilities, knacks, talents, and gifts for artisitic expression, coupled with technical ability and imagination sufficient to wow, impress and awe lesser mortals such as you and I. Then there is Jimi Hendrix.
Jimi was doing things with the electric guitar that was far and beyond anything thought humanly possible, and this was when technology, although considered state-of-the-art at the time, was way too primitive for the otherworldly, supernatural gift with which God blessed Jimi Hendrix. His was not a human gift. Such ability and genius is reserved for the angels. There are other "guitar gods" of other musical genres, ranging from country and folk, instrumental to jazz and hard rock, old school heavy metal and alternative metal, who may come close, and even surpass Hendrix in electric guitar sounds, but only because musical technology has come as far as it has since the Electric Gypsy's death way back on Sept. 18th, 1970. If the man with an angel's gift for music was around today, no one would be able to hold a smoldering cigarette butt next to him, let alone a candle. 'Nuff said, point made, end of argument, get over it, tha-tha-tha-that's all, folks.
