    Hendrix`s talent, pure instrumental talent, is among the best (widely-known) players to ever touch the instrument. Kanye, while good at producing and making money (and I`m serious about that), can`t claim any significant musical talent (that he`s shared with the world, anyway). And that, to me, is a significant difference. Too, Hendrix`s music is still influencing guitarists today, well over four decades after he recorded it. Kanye`s music does well to stay in the Zeitgeist more than four months.

    One glaring difference is that Hendrix is dead, and Kanye isn`t.

    I wish that situation could be reversed.

    It`s not a cliche to say that Hendrix really did let his guitar do the talking. He was very reticent in interviews and never called attention to himself or tried to put down the interviewer if the questions weren`t good (unlike Lennon or Dylan).

    I saw Hendrix and the Band of Gypsies in January of 1970 at the now infamous "Winter Festival for Peace" concert at Madison Square Garden. That was the night he came onstage at 3AM so stoned that he played only two songs, sat down on the stage for awhile, then left and never came back. Not the ideal performance, but still a memorable event.

    There are different theories about what really happened that night. One is that Jimi drank something that had been laced with an unknown drug.

    @Jake: Jimi died in England after a concert at the Isle of Wight, not in NYC. He was prescribed sleeping pills by a doctor and mistakenly took too many. He was still alive when they got him to the hospital. Reports say he was ignored, probably because he was black. His death could have been prevented. That`s the story as I`ve heard it, anyway.
    And yes, it`s a complete travesty to even mention them in the same sentence, let alone compare them. The only thing they have in common is skin color.

    @BostonKaiser

    Jimi died in September, 1970. The concert at Madison Square Garden was in January of 1970. There is still speculation about how that particular drug (whatever it was) got into him before that show, and if a drink was laced, WHO did it and WHY, etc.

    I still do not understand how people like kw get to be rich. In my opinion greatness should include modesty.

    I couldn`t name a Kanye West song if you paid me. He is a nothing who will be forgotten months after his last recording. Jimi`s music will never be forgotten and will continue to inspire forever.

    The only headline I want to see about Kanye is when he has died after being brutally buggered by a donkey.

    How on earth can that arse claim to be any kind of genius, his material is insipid and his fanbase mainly clueless individuals.

    A genius is something only others can call you because you do not ever have the right to call yourself one.

    It may dull the pain for the arrogant idiot, but it hurts like hell for everyone else. Just anyone who just had their health insurance cancelled thanks to the arrogant f***tard Democrats.
