Arguably the most influential musician of all times. Was he metal? Not really. Was he Rock? Maybe. He was out there in his own little genre. He made that Stratocaster do things that I think scared the hell out of Leo Fender. Had he lived I've always wondered what musical direction or directions he would have taken.

Nice write up!

Jimi may not be metal, but one thing is for certain, he was the hardest rocker in the world from 1966 to 1970. He deserves a place of honor here at HRF!

He was heading the same way his mentor John McLaughlin was heading.

There was seminal talk about forming a super group with Miles Davis and Paul McCartney (post Beatles)...he did send a telegram so he had Miles in the pocket.

This is rare because of the acoustic guitar. TOTAL Robert Johnson reincarnate and where Jimi favored his Blues roots, yet...this posthumous recording showed where he was launching to...


He was looking to sharpen Iron with Iron. John was probably the ONLY guitarist that could keep up with Jimi. In the comments section of this video, I LOVE the comment "Shame Jimi never lived to hear John's Mahavishnu Orchestra record their second album 'Birds Of Fire' at Electric Lady in 1972. He would have shit himself."

When you hear the pocket and where each pop in and out...that's cutting bleeding edge brilliance! It's a shame Jimi didn't get a chance to do everything he wanted to share with us.

Another one of those deep cuts that I keep telling everyone I'm attracted to!


and another!
