Jimi Hendrix is a godfather of classic rock, king of the electric guitar, and musician with a music library of top-selling singles.
The man is essentially a musician with which there is no comparison (Stevie Ray Vaughn fans back-up).
After backing legends like The Isley Brothers, Ike and Tina, Ray Charles, and Little Richard it was time for Jimi Hendrix to move to his rightful place in the front of the stage. His albums “Are You Experienced,” “Axis Bold As Love,” and “Electric Ladyland” are three of the premier studio recordings of sixties rock. Jimi Hendrix set the standard for every person who played the electric guitar after him–and he set the bar very high.
His list of great songs is long, everybody has favorites, and everybody has them listed in different orders.
