He was and still is considered to be the greatest guitarist of all time. He reinvented guitar! People can claim how people like Yngwie Malmsteen and Steve Vai are better, but i've heard many of their songs and none of them compare to the beauty of a Hendrix song. Yngwie and Steve are purely guitar techs, Jimi is a fucking musician!!! Yngwie and Steve can move their fingers fast...Jimi makes music!!!
Kevin: Omg! Have you heard Yngwie Malmsteen's new song? His playing is awesome!

Paul: Pfft...You call that music? Listen to some Jimi Hendrix, then talk to me about guitar.

There has been pretty excellent guitarists in the world. Joe Satriani, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan, all excellent at what they do. But once upon a time, in the late '60's, there was and trio called The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Their frontman, Jimi Hendrix, would be the man who showed the limitless potential in the guitar.

There's something about Jimi that makes me say "F***!" Is it his antics? The lyrics? His ability to play our national anthem with his teeth? Or is it his bluesy distortion and his overwhelming creativity that sets off the "HOLY S***!" meter? Maybe it's all those attributes combined that makes Hendrix the greatest guitarist of all time.

Opinions on three of his songs:

Purple Haze is his only top-chart song, making it an one-hit wonder. The song is a 2+ minute ride in Jimi's pot-filled world, with an cool solo.

Voodoo Child (Slight Return) was his last song for his last album, Electric Ladyland, and it made a hell of a bang. It has an very memorable opening riff and remains one of Jimi's best.

All Along The Watchtower is the second Bob Dylan song he covered, but is considered, even by Dylan, to be Jimi's magnum opus. The solo is considered to be one of the greatest in history.
Jimi Hendrix is an true Guitar Hero! No question.

1. Poser,"I Love Jimmy Hendrix
Person,"I love Jimi Hendrix"
Sackwad, "I hate Jimmy Hendrix"
Complete Asshole, "Slash is better than Hendrix"
Bumbass,"S.R.V. has a better version of Voodoo Child"

Anyway, Jimi Hendrix is the best guitarist there will ever be and he is a wonderful songwriter. If you think his lyrics have no meaning, listen to Castles of Sand and get back to me.Also, If you like any ACDC,Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, or any other crappy ass metal, especially death metal or Korn, you are a gay ass fucktard and you can suck my hairy balls.

Nuff Said,Jimi Hendrix is best. He died in 1970. he never copied other people's music. If he took the basic sound or lyrics, he made it his own. Whatever, you suck if you dissagree with any of this.
