Jimi Hendrix was the greatest true musician in rock history. Of course, kids nowadays think it's more important to look good than to have any actual musical ability of ANY kind. Anyone who's ever played guitar understands the genius of Hendrix. Kain1, learn some respect, kid.

Anyone who thinks he's "overrated" probably isn't a real music fan and definitely not a musician, guitar player specifically. He pretty much changed the whole game and made his guitar do things that people didn't think were possible.

I agree that some of his sh*t is actually very easy to play, but that's not the point. I got to talk to one of my favorite guitarists, Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers/Gov't Mule) at a meet & greet last year and asked him if he would let me in on some secrets/tricks of his and he told me, "It's not about what notes you play or how you play them, it's about why you play them."

Hendrix is a bit overrated.. sure, he made a few good ones, and he died young.. But the adoration he gets is a bit over the top..

I love the fact that Lemmy Kilmister was a roadie for The Jimi Hendrix Experience in '67-'68. The story he tells in the documentary film "Lemmy" about how Hendrix relied on him to score LSD is great.

@marcus: It just makes more sense to commemorate them on the day of their death rather than a birthday, because if you're celebrating a birthday, it's usually because you've lived to see another one.

Hard to have a birthday when you're deader than britney spear's career.

Wouldn't it make more sense to remember him on the day of his death? It's not like he's having any more birthdays.
