Who has more skill? Clapton, or Hendrix?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Guss, Dec 8, 2002.

  1. I'm not too sure myself right now. But sometimes I feel Clapton doesn't get enough respect for his talent, and many people argue that he may have been better than Hendrix. What do you think? I know Hendrix had the image, but try and look past that.:)

    Your question is confusing.

    In your headline you ask about skill, then about talent. Those are not necessarily the same thing.
  3. Whoops! Pardon me. How about just
    "Techinical skill"? Forget talent.
    There, is that right?
  4. hendrix had a whole helluva lot more than just image. clapton has some great talent but i'm not sure if he has the creativity to come up with the kind of songs that hendrix created.

    both of them could play blues damn well but to me hendrix had more than clapton did in practically every respect.

    Yeah, what's the use of "who is better than who"?

    I don't like the idea of music as a contest.

  7. Maybe.....but your username is "Voodochile". Hmmmm...

    I just kidding dude.:D :)

  8. Am I the only one who finds pure pleasure, at finding out what other people's opinions are? Who cares why, it's just fun man!:p :)
  9. clapton has more talent. hendrix can't even play guitar anymore. y'know, since he's dead.

    Having seen Clapton live two summers ago, I would say that Clapton is without a doubt...totally awesome. that man plays the blues like he was taking a breath.

  13. i'm sorry, terry, but the correct annoying question is hendrix vs. stevie ray vaughan. better luck on your next thread d00d.
  14. If you don't like it, don't post. It's that simple. Have a nice day, d00d.

    Just rack it up one more notch so the mods get a reason to delete it.

    Come on guys, you can do it.

    Maybe they will just close it, so no one losses a post count...

    I agree that Stevie Ray vs. Hendrix is a better query, but I say that B.B. will always win b/c of his soul.
