Sure Jimi is a great guitarist, but as one can see he is clearly OVERRATED. Many of the definitions that are already posted for Jimi are the same. "Jimi played the guitar with his teeth", "Jimi was on acid, he has to be awesome!", "Jimi lit guitars on fire!", blah, blah, blah. What song did Jimi play the guitar with his teeth on? Let me tell you, it was "The Star Spangled Banner", which I must say is one of the WORST guitar solos I have ever heard in my life. It sounds like crap. I don't even know how to play a fricken guitar let alone one with my teeth and I could still play something on a guitar that sounds better than that sorry excuse of music with a guitar pick taped to my butt. I could take a dump in the toilet and listen to the kerplunks in the water and still be more entertained. The only reason that Jimi is SO fricken popular is because he has so many fricken gimmicks that appeal to many idiots, who only appreciate what artists do and not what they create. Just because he did things such as lighting guitars on fire and getting high on acid during concerts doesn't mean he is the greatest guitarist. Sure he was good at the guitar but no more. Cleary anyone who can recognize quality music when they hear it can't say that Jimi was the greatest guitarist ever; his guitar playing sounds sloppy and just plain bad at times. If anyone really wants to hear the greatest guitarist of all time pop in a Led Zeppelin CD and you will instantly have your clothes ripped off by the explosive riffs of the true Guitar God. Jimmy Page is by far the greatest guitarist ever to live, and he doesn't need a bunch of fricken gimmicks to prove that. Just listen to these few Led Zeppelin songs: "Stairway to Heaven", "Dazed and Confused", "Heartbreaker", and "Communication Breakdown" and any other previous opinions you had of Jimi Hendrix will be shattered completely. Listen to the rest of Led Zeppelin and you will worship them as music gods.
Jimmi Hendrix = good guitarist that is totally and completely overrated.
Jimmy Page = The Greatest Guitarist ever.
