I uploaded my version on my youtube today, but the link gets banned when I post it on here. My version can be found at mrzeddie15 on youtube if anyone is interested. My question though is who in your opinion did the best job on the national anthem of all time? I like Steve Vai's version and personally think Hendrix's version is vastly overrated unless you put the era he was in into consideration.
I might think vai's version is better...but Hendrix at Woodstock is unforgettable...bombs bursting in air...and he played them...
The Vai version so self-evientally doesn't happen without the Hendrix version happening first that it's hard for me to understand what the big deal about it is.
Virtually all music should be looked at through the lens of New Historicism, therefore Hendrix' is better.
