    I'm a Hendrix fan and know his background pretty well. But I thought that was a very good summary.

    Ah, Jimi.

    For me, he was the best of the best. Not just the best guitar player, but the guy who really understood what rock and roll, and blues were all about. There's an inherent COOLNESS to his music that is often imitated, never duplicated.

    I don't get anyone who doesn't dig Jimi.
     
  4. Hendrix didn't just walk out of some garage band and step into fame. By the time he was 22 years old, he was already an accomplished session musician. Listen to his guitar work on Don Covay's 'Mercy, Mercy'. You can hear the beginnings of his signature style.

    Mercy, Mercy
