    In my book, Jimi Hendrix is one of the 5 greatest guitar players of all-time, along with David Gilmour, Jimmy Page, T-Bone Walker, B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Okay, that's 6, but hey, I could list about 20 legends. But ole Jimi Hendrix is in that mix for sure. Loaded with talent and he played with all feel, which is why he is a hard guitarist to mimic.

    Hendrix is awesome :) I hear they're making a biopic on him now, so that's pretty cool.

    Gotta give credit to whose song this really is... So many people actually think this is a Jimi Hendrix song. Its actually a Bob Dylan song that Jimi Hendrix did a cover of. Jimi Hendrix did a great job with it obviously and in certain aspects I prefer his version as opposed to the Bob Dylan version but can't forget that Dylan wrote and recorded "All Along The Watchtower" first.
