Next up!

Nominated by The Bullet

Jimi Hendrix


Jimi Hendrix was one of the most influential African-American rockers of the sixties. His music popularized wah-wah pedals, stereophonic sound, and phasing. He is often credited for having a great influence Heavy Metal and Hard Rock. The phycedelis rocker's first single was the iconic "Hey Joe" in 1966. For the next four years, him and his band (consisting of Mitch Mitchell on drums and Noel Redding on bass) would revolutionise Rock as we know it. The three studio albums Hendrix released during his lifetime ("Are You Experienced", "Axis: as Bold as Love", and "Electric Ladyland") have all gone platinum, "Are You Experienced" having gone 4x platinum. The immortal guitarist has preformed at legendary festivals including The Monteray Pop Festival (often seen as his breakout) and Woodstock, where he preformed his legendary rendition of the Star Spangled Banner (one of the harshest musical critisisms against the government of the 60's). His death at 27 years old remains one of the biggest tragedies in Rock 'N Roll. Since his death, many posthumas Hendrix albums have been released (notably "The Cry of Love" and "First Rays of the New Rising Sun" which try to replicate the album he was working on at the time of his death). He has been covered by artists including Seal, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Joe Satriani with Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteem, Buddy Guy, Pearl Jam, Pride and Glory with Slash, Alice Cooper, Medeski Martin and Wood, and Living Colour among others. His latest top 5 album, "Valleys of Neptune" from this year, prooves he is still with us.

It is because of all of this and more that I nominate Jimi Hendrix for the musicbanter hall of fame.

I'm going to vote no just because you're all voting yes.

This maybe one of the most one sided votes going.

I actually sometimes wonder if Jimi deserves all the praise he receives.

I love his music, personally...but I can't help but feel he is one of those flukes that everyone just agrees they have to like. Did he really make music that everyone enjoys?
