Oh, but wait, none of those bands are famous and most are American, so I guess they don't mean shit.
Now you are just being childish.

I wasn't talking about the band for one, or else I would have said the jimi hendrix expierence instead of just jimi hendrix. He IS an american guitarist (Seattle =D), but yes this is subjective and really aside from the point..

That makes absolutely no sense. If you're going to use that kind of logic, then it has to work both ways.
Because, UK had MORE great bands, and MORE people went to start their own band after hearing The Beatles and The Stones than when people heard Elvis and Chuck Berry.

Plus the british invasion was so huge, no american musical movement has come close since.

It's true, boo boo. You're completely ignoring some of the most influential American artists due to personal preference. At first I didn't really care, but Crowquill and Big3 are right, you're hardly giving America any credit.

However it was his band that became one of the hottest bands in the UK, and when people think Jimi Hendrix, they almost always associate him with his JHE hits, Fire, Purple Haze, Voodoo Child, etc.

And he broke through the scene in the UK, he made his music in the UK, and his musical influence has little to do with him being american.

I've read jimi hendrix's biography. If he had been born in britian, I really doubt he'd be the same hendrix we know of now.

Personal preference?

I prefer The Doors, Nirvana, Velvet Underground and The Ramones to The Rolling Stones, im not being biased or going by preference...Hell i dont even like The Stones all that much, but still no american band really touchs them in overall greatness.

So now you are saying his nationality has some kind of genetic effect on his musical talents?

He's saying that the environment he grew up in did, obviously.

If he grew up in britian, he would've grown up way different. Which could seriously alter his talents.
