  • Jimi Hendrix

    No respectable audio/music forum get get by without a discussion of the impact Jimi Hendrix has had in rock music. He is/was arguably the most innovative, creative and masterful guitar player ever and his talent cannot be denied, not that it is. I'm not a musician, so I can't offer up an opinion as to his technical prowess or what made him so different from the other great payers of the day. As a listener however I can say that no one before and quite possibly since had the ability to draw me in to his playing with the notes and feeling he brought out of the instrument.

    Although I'm not a superfan, and do not own every single release, I am a big fan and especially like him when he plays more blues or blues-oriented material.

    What are your thoughts/opinions about Jimi?

      Jimi Hendrix Is to guitar what Brce Lee was to the martial arts. One of my fav Hendrix LPs is Electric Ladyland.

      I still think Pete Townsend is an underrated guitar player and he was also a showman. Hendrix copied Townsend's windmill moves.

        And Pete Townsend stated that he had seen Keith Richards doing the windmill before a Stones show backstage, thought it looked cool and started doing it on stage where it became a trademark move. In a later discussion with Richards Townsend was chagrined to learn that Richards windmilled to loosen up prior to going on stage but did not do it as a regular thing during performance.

      I saw him when I was 14--I remember the concert like it was yesterday! He came on stage, thanked us for coming, and warned, "This is gonna be loud, but dig it anyway," and blasted into "Lover Man." My ears rang for 4 or 5 days, but at the time, I thought it was worth it! Here's a picture from the show (Cal Expo racetrack April 26th, 1970.):

          I work with a guy who can pinpoint the day he lost his hearing - a Hendrix concert at some gym!

            MikeL turned me onto the Classic reissues of Blues. Side one and two were ok but three and four were spectacular. Normally has been going for some bucks on ePay but just saw a copy going for reasonable price.
