Today (18.9.) is the 40 years since the death of the most influential and most talented guitarists in the history of rock music.
One of serbian rock journalist Petar Popovic noticed :
..."After the 16th June 1967th The pop music was no longer the same. Everyone who was connected with Monterey pop festival,in any way,tragically ended life in years to come. Otis Redding died in a car accident, Brian Jones drowned in the pool, Janis Joplin was found dead in cheap motel room, Jim Morrison(The Doors did not appear because the coordinators forgot to invite them) will be the victim of a mysterious heart attack in Paris, and Jimi Hendrix will end tragically in London....."

Its something about watching a left-handed guitarist especially a great one like Jimmi Hendrix.

(Maybe its because im left-handed myself)

I thought for Otis Redding it was a plane, not car, crash?

Right. And if Morrison "wasn't invited" to Monterey Pop how was he then connected to it?

Yes, him and Jimmy Page and think Jimi just edges it for his creative abilities. He played what he heard in his head - which is a fantastic skill for any musician to have.

Steve Vai said something to the effect that he could play what Hendrix played, but what freaks him out is how did Hendrix know to go there to begin with?

The absolute top musician rock and roll has, and probably will, ever see. Band of Gypsys (IMO) is the peak of rock and roll live albums.

Not my favourite songwriter of guitarist, in fact, but the man was a genuis with the electtric guitar and deserves the credit he recieves, in that respect. His Mayfair home (Brook Street) is open to the public at the moment, I believe.

I love these lyrics...Hendrix was a wise man at a very young age already...,

Will the wind ever remember
The names it has blown in the past,
And with its crutch, its old age and its wisdom
It whispers, "No, this will be the last."

Jimi used to work a lot. In a few years he changes his band, his music style. I always wondered what he could have done musically if he had not die...
His cover of All along the watchtower is to me the best cover ever made.

Tonight I listened to Valley Of Neptunes.

There were rumors he was going to work with Miles Davis.
One of his first attempts in that direction you can hear on the jam with John mcLaughlin I posted here. He experiments in a more free style direction already..
Al long road for him to travel though, to become a jazzrocker... if he had stayed alive.
Dope sucks.

Well, he was considering working with what became Emerson, Lake and Palmer (and before that had thought of collaborating with Arthur Brown and Vincent Crane of The Crazy World of Arthur Brown. A while afterwards, Vincent Crane left TCWOAB, along with its new, young drummer, Carl Palmer. They were due to meet with Brian Jones after he left the Stones to talk about working together and after he died formed Atomic Rooster, which Palmer left after one album to become the Palmer in Emerson, Lake and Palmer).

A few thoughts

1) I clearly remember hearing that he'd died. I was 15, and a month or so earlier my mates and I were bummed that our parents wouldn't let us travel the 170 miles to hang out in a field with half a million stoned hippies to see Hendrix and The Who at the Isle of Wight. Could never understand why ...

2) It's interesting hearing that McLaughlin Hendrix jam on the YouTube clip back up the thread. Those were two guitarists who greatly influenced Miles Davis, one of the true musical geniuses of the 20thC. McLaughlin got to play with Davis many times (Bitches Brew, Jack Johnson, Silent Way etc), but Hendrix never did, much to Davis's disappointment. I often wonder what Agharta would have sounded like with Hendrix instead of Pete Cosey.

3) Hendrix only had one peer on the electric guitar, and that was Frank Zappa. Nobody else came close in terms of creativity and musicianship to those two.

love frank, too - but he doesn't belong in the same convo as jimi, either. jimi had an incredible imagination, and he had the gift of being able to instantly transfer his mind to his hands with no inhibitors or filters....

Zappa was a genius himself. More versatile then Hendrix, but a very different guitar player.

When we are long gone, and rock is put in it's rightful musical place, Jimi will be in the same category as Louis Armstrong, Bix, Buddy Rich, Charlie Parker, and a handful of others whose musical innovation and abilities transcend their genre. Late 60s rock music will be as seen as an art movement as indelible as the Impressionist period of the 1800s. No wonder Clapton and the other guitar gods quaked in their boots when Jimi stepped foot on British soil.
