My mate keeps telling me that all of hendrix's songs (except purple haze) are just covers of 40's blues songs, i'm finding it very hard to believe so i'm wondering if anyone knows this to be true.

Also, proof would be real nice.

All Along The Wacthtower is a cover

Just go look at the credits on the albums and it'll show Hendrix as the credited songwriter.

He's really quite smart, he was just going by what a friend of his told him.


He's freind thought hendrix died in '76

He covered Hey Joe, and All Along The Watchtower. They're his own songs though, as he only used the lyrics, and completely rewrote the music himself.

He also used to cover Wild Thing on stage a lot, but that's a hippy staple, and nearly every band in the world covers it.

Your friend is an ignorant douche. 99% of his work is original.
#16
How about asking him for proof?
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
#17
hey joe is a cover. it says so in a book of tabs that i have.
.

...
I have no opinion on this matter.
#19
We've sorted it out and he admited defeat, as i said before he just had an un-reliable source.

Yes your friend is right, didn't you know that Voodoo Chile was actually written by blind lemon jefferson, as was foxy lady. Some people are so silly now days...
