Its hard to believe that it was 38 years ago that Jimi Hendrix died. His music is still going strong. What led me to start this thread is on my way to work one of the local DJ's was asking the listening audience who they felt(if anyone exists?) has taken on the mantle that Jimi once owned. I don't think there is anyone. Jimi Hendrix was as unique a player as there ever was or will be. When you look at the whole package that Jimi was.... his playing both lead and rhythm. His songwriting is right up there with any great writers and in many cases surpasses many. His showmanship was on a different scale than everyone else, and his voice. Although he thought his voice was not great.... I disagree I thought his vocals made some of his great songs what they became.
RIP Jimi Hendrix........ We miss you!
