Jimi Hendrix

He made Rock N Roll, not only was he revolutionary, he did it in such a short period of time, he was also a phenomenal Blues, Funk, RNB/Soul & Psychedelic player too, his playing was far beyond this world, his live performances made people people physically shake and how many guitarists can you say did that? 1 or 2 if even, everyone who loves or plays Rock or Metal for that matter has to take their hat off to him, he was greatness & inspired greatness, guitarists like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Ernie Isley, Eddie Hazel, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Zakk Wylde, Slash, Eric Gales and MANY more all inspired by Hendrix, I mean come on all these amazing guitarists all being influenced by him and look how they turned out to be legends, he lived and died doing what he loved, he had a vision and he accomplished it and he was an original and an inspiration to us all and still is, Jimi is no doubt the GREATEST guitarist that ever lived.
