I'm shocked and surprisied there isn't a big hendrix thread. I'll try to keep this one going.

Mitch Mitchells is my favourite drummer ever, IMO he's better then bonham, paice....

Mitch is definitely an awesome drummer. Very unappreciated when people talk about the best drummers of the era. He played with one of the best guitarists of his era and of all time and he refused to be overshadowed.

Jimi Hendrix will always be the greatest guitarist to me, and if I ever doubt that I'll just pop in Live at Woodstock, he was on a whole other planet. I'm reading "Electric Gypsy" right now, seems ok.

Why should there be a huge Hendrix thread? Just post a thing about Weed & Feedback; that's all he was. It was a lot of noise, pointless noise. You people are too wrapped up in stuff that is overated and not that great. You need to look at the big picture instead of being glued to this pointless propaganda. Just because VH1 puts Zeppelin, Hendrix, and Sabbath up in their top choices does NOT mean they are that great.

There should be a huge hendrix thread because had a huge impact. I don't watch VH1, or buy Rolling Stone or whatever, and I'm still a massive fan.

Weed and feedback? The reason hendrix is so great is not because he made a lot of "pointless noise", but he was one of the first people to use the guitar in such a creative way. It might seem like pointless noise to you, but bacik then it was ground-breaking. All the pick slides, whammy abuse, feedback, and much of the soling used in rock today has some affinity with hendrix.

And then listen to little wing and tell me that that is a lot of pointless noise. And castles made of sand. Or the wind cries mary.

Just because VH1 puts Zeppelin, Hendrix, and Sabbath up in their top choices does NOT mean they are that great.

The fact that they still have millions of fans even today does.

Any of the stuff on Axis: Bold as Love is so much more than feedback drenched acid rock (well, except for the first track).

I read a Jimi Hendrix biography by Sharon Lawrence (who knew Jimi well). It's interesting, I reccommend it.

i read it as well. he lead one of the loneliest and saddest lives i've ever heard of.

he's my biggest influence, anyone who bashes him just hasn't been paying attention.

regarding mitch mitchell, he's one of the best drummers in history IMO, he was working a 3 piece to it's max, filling in a bunch of sound, he was great.

the one move i hated by hendrix was adding Billy Cox to Bass, he was brutal, but Jimi needed a friend on the road.

I wouldn't say he was ignorant. Possibly mentally handicapped, but not ignorant.

Haha...I have Hendrix # 3 on my greatest guitarists list...and in mu Top 5 or 10 favorite artists...

Yet I agree slightly... He was mainly drugged out lyrics and distortion and noise...

For all those who think he was drugged out and distorted all the time, just listen to Axis: Bold as Love. He is rarely distorted on that record and some of the sounds he coaxes out of his guitar are just gorgeous.

Little Wing might be the most beautiful song ever recorded...
