Isn't he amazing? Hes probably the only "classic rock" person i can listen to.
but you should also listen to Funkadelic if you like Hendrix.
i find that quite a tenuous sort of link really, Parliament/Funkadelic don't sound massively like Hendrix...do they?
They're still good though so check them out anyway :)
my flatmate thought "Super Stupid" WAS Hendrix, and he loves Jimi.
Never really made that link in my mind. To me they just sound like Funkadelic, i guess, and i suppose there's much more going on than in a Hendrix rekkid. But yeah.
for me its between izabella and are you experienced
probably because Hendrix is so ubiquitous i've got really bored of the 'hits'.
but also because "Maggot Brain" 'changed my life' as it were.
is ridiculously good.
As is Hendrix.
Ive just started using mine again. Theyre great!
that hendrix is a "classic rock" person at all. itÂ´s irrelevent whether or not legions of guitar geeks and dads love him, he was a true genius on the guitar and no amount of university dorm psychedelic posters and VH1 specials can even hope to dent that. Hendrix is cool 4eva.
agree. Although not my fave blues axeman, its difficult to deny what he did with the instrument was genius.
the three Jimi Hendrix Experience albums stand up to anything else which was done in their respective years. All three are completely different from each other and bona fide classic albums. I find it really difficult to choose a favourite from the three. Noel Redding kept it going but Hendrix and Mitch Mitchell together were just dynamite. A great mixture of out there guitar pyrotechnics and beatiful songs like Castles Made Of Sand.
Funkadelic were great, I've got a lot of stuff like them, Sly And The Family Stone, Bootsy Collins etc, but one of my favourite albums of that genre is Parliament-Rhenium.
don't like his voice, it's all a bit dull.
was, besides from being an amazing guitarist, an amazing performer and his stage prescence was unbelievable. He is a true "legend", unlike other supposed "legends"
they should be put down.
At Truck, you will be converted to the true path, and away from this dull voice cult you are living in now. Down with Anti-Hendrix cults! Down! And at Truck, the all night Jimi Hendrix tent will be opened. Yes. Yes!
