Little Wing was good...Then Stevie Ray Vaughan covered it and made it great. SRV makes Hendrix look like a child on guitar.

Haha... again... maybe I don't totally agree... but I do a little.

One reason I can't ever consider Hendrix the greatest ever is because all of SRV's versions of his songs...IMO are far and away better as far as guitar and vocals.

I saw kenny wayne shepherd in concert in april, he closed with Voodoo Chile...My dear lord...I've never heard/seen anyone play it that way. He impressed me more than SRV did. It was damn good.

Anyone ever seen the 1973 documentary on Hendrix? It is awesome and the interviews are very insightful. It doesn't shy away from putting actual performances on display either. Damn good film. I encourage everyone to try and see it.

So I'm watching VH1 Classic's "One Hit Wonders" show... and I just heard one of the most interesting music facts I've heard in a loooong time...

Jimi Hendrix only cracked the Top 20 on the charts ONCE...with a cover song...Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower"

Yea, a shame. The white radio stations didn't play him because he was too hard and the black radio stations didn't play him because his audience was too white. But when you went to his concerts, you had to fight your way in. Such is the irony of the pop scene of the 60's.

There was some thingie on a VH1 channel about Hendrix, it had a guy from Remember the Titans playing Hendrix... I can't remember what it was called, I just know I didn't like it. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Yes, I was aware of that. Why did you bring that up?

Redding died pretty much pennyless, didn't get any cash from the time he was with hendrix (not Jimi's fault, but his 1/2 sister and father).

and yea i saw the film done with the guy from remember the titans, it was brutal, just aweful.

and yes, i also knew he only had one top 20 hit, he's a guy whose legend just grew and grew after he passed on. each generation took him on as thier own, that's his true legacy.

blackened, you must be oblivious to what Hendrix really did with his music. No other artist has put more feeling into their music than him. He was an idealist and expressed his feelings through guitar. Not to mention he knew more ways to express it than u me and probably everyone from this thread combined kno how. Either you haven't lisntened to hendrix enough or you don't understand what he was about. And he wasn't just drugs and feedback, he was much more than that. And concerning drugs he wasn't all weed btw, he did a lot of drugs including LCD which some say that drastically influenced his lyrics.

yeah i watched that video on vh1 classic rock channel. I'm think it was just called "Hendrix." http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0260949/ Pretty sure that is it cuz Jimi Hendrix from that is the guy from Remember the Titans. That was a pretty decent movie. Really showed some of what jimi was about.

Yeah and blackened go watch Jimi Plays Monterey. Either buy it from suncoast or something or just watch it on youtube (although its missing a few sections I think). Maybe you'll understand a little bit about wat i mean

I don't understand how you can cover a song and do it better. Jimi hendrix didn't do it better in his covers and ppl like SRV and John Mayer aren't doing it better in their covers of Hendrix songs. They did it different with their own style in their own way. Well not really John Mayer...

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


It's the best piece of music I've ever heard.

Among the best. WLL Live By Zep is good too.
It has very loose playing which makes it more or a feeling song.

Yeah I actually like more of his rhythmic stuff rather than his 'harder' music. Like Voodoo Child and Machine Gun r great and have so much feeling but just cuz it has so much feeling doesn't really make a song a classic for me (tho its definately a plus). I tend to listen to more Axis: Bold as Love. Like castles made of sand, bold as love, If 6 was 9, 51st Anniversary and Wait Until Tomorrow r also awesome songs with more of a pop song. I like his Rolling Stone cover. If you've ever heard the version of Angel that almost sounds acoustic (but im pretty sure its not). I like that one more than the normal song Angel. Btw weird fact is that Little Wing use to be called Angel. On his albums after he died the albums said Little Wing but then when his family got the rights to his music they put an album out and instead of Little Wing they called it Angel just to stay true to Hendrix.

Does anyone know what the effect at the end of Bold As Love is? I love that ending part and that effect makes it sound VERY trippy.

I actually watched it a few days ago and thought it was done quite well. I thought some of the live playing could have looked better, but he did a lot of Jimi's stage moves pretty well. Overall, I liked it.
