Watching Jimi Hendrix at the Isle of Wight, on Sky Arts, how good was that guy? Well I think he was the best, still sounds fantastic 40 plus years later.
I know it’s been said that his legendary status has come about partly because of his untimely death at such a young age, but I think it has much more to do with the fact that he was a fantastic guitarist, playing some fantastic music.
First album I ever bought was a Hendrix album an I’ve never stopped liking him irrespective of the vagaries of whats fashionable in music over the intervening years. Great music will always be great music, something Jimi produced in bucket loads.
We’ll never know what he would have gone on to produce, but what he left behind is one of the best bodies of work of any rock musician and it has stood the test of time extremely well.
Yep I’m a fan 🙂
Oh and well done Sky Arts for airing lots of good music.
