Jenny:Jimi Hendrix, the greatest guitarist EVER!!!
Jenny:*Punches Andrew*No he's not he's the greatest!
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.
He traveled the Chitlin Circuit to really try and perfect his bluesy side. He continued his playing and developed a mixture of blues and rock like nobody had seen. He broke through and was noticed by Chas Chandler of the Animals in Cafe Wha? up in Greenwhich Village.
Jimi created rock and roll and is the greatest guitarist ever. HE IS A GOD
not a fag: were you dropped when you were little? Jimi Hendrix musically rapes Slash from the grave.
