This is what happens when a white guy tried to sing like Jimi. That drummer was way too old and fat, and it was mostly lame, Slash at least tried to make a show of it which was admirable, but the other "musicians" were dire, honestly, noone can match the incomparable Jimi Hendrix

I believe that drummer was Mitch Mitchell (though I would have to say, he was notoriusly sloppy in many live recordings I've heard in any case...)

...the drummer that played in the original Jimi Hendrix Experience lineup?

and I guess it being introduction of Hendrix into the hall of fame they'd try to bring back together the original band?


either that or you're really apathic

The singer is Steve Winwood. This obviously isn't his best stuff, but he has an impressive body of work with Traffic, Blind Faith, and other projects.

Mitch Mitchell was awesome back in the day. I want to see how he'd do on fire.

The bassist is maybe Billy Cox? I'm not sure.

But, Slash was... ugh. Read the stuff in the link in my above post, it covers most of the criticism of his performance.

Whoever said Mitch was too fat and old to participate in a tribute to a man he actually played with and helped make famous is a complete moron.

Steve Winwood is known for a blues singing persona, so why not have him pay tribute as the singer? The performance was good, not landmark or anything but still good.

Just saw it. I was a little disappointed with Slash's performance. It was the wrong type of guitar and settings for that situation.

I posted this video quite some time ago in the blues and jazz section.

It's ok I guess, I don't think Slash's playing is great and I don't like his new tone.

I just wish I could see Slash playing this back in the day.

If Hendrix were still alive and looked old and fat would you say that about him?

Slash is the coolest person ever. If I could be 1/4 as cool as him, I could die happy, but I think his playing here is WAY sub par.

I can't stand those vocals and I didn't like the intro.
Other than that I liked it

Have you EVER seen Slash play live? Obviously not otherwise you'd know he pretty much always looks like that when he plays guitar.

This wasn't the best set up for a Jimmy Hendrix tribute, but they tried and I think with the set up they had it wasn't half bad.

The drummer was Mitch Mitchell from the original Experience, including the original drum track for 'Hey Joe'.
Don't make absolute bullcrap claims. Honestly, ****e like this ticks me off slightly.

This thread didn't need resurrecting. It was a long time ago and I'd managed to forget that evening of terrible, terrible music.
