While that may be true, it doesn't mean that this guy knows what he's talking about. Guitarists like satriani, vai and buckethead have praised Hendrix and have shown his influence in their music. I'm definitely going to give them more credibility than this ass.

It's true that enjoyment of music can transcend all things, age, gender, culture, and social status. Everyone can have an opinion, and can express an opinion that is their own. But even opinions can tend to be more valid or less valid. An opinion is subject to opinion and it can be accepted or reject.

I read his article before I knew he was a musician, and I didn't agree with it. I head somewhere that the rhythm guitar player had a difficult time nailing the acoustic guitar part in Wind Cries Mary. So they he made it seem any guitar player can execute that song no problem doesn't settle right with me. I think they can fake it. But maybe not get it down exactly as was actually played. I think that besides what you brought up, it is ironic that he is a musician and saying the junk does.

("...well now, as with most things there are the first and the best where the best is alway open to conjecture here, and yet the first, well isn't that obvious by what went before it..." mentioned the goblin thinking that there wasn't that genre before hendrix came along, adding "...so rate him as you will, his place in history is untouched by your conjecture today...")

You think as a musician I'm going to listen to some doosh who cant play or sing a notegive me advice over someone who can and is an accomplished musician? Uhh no..thats effin retarded dude if you ask me and I just dont see the logic in it.
So should this forum ban anyone who isn't a musician from commenting about music?

No but why would I let someone tell me how to compose a piece of music who cant play, sing, or write? Thats what I thought he meant by that originaly. Having an opinion on whether or not you like a piece of music is something completly different. Telling me how or trying to give me advice on what I should do...well you could do that too. However it would just go in one ear and out the other. Now if you knew what you were talking about and were a respected musician it would carry more weight than someone who didn't. I think the same could be said for any proffession.

There's quite a lot of Hendrix stuff i find to be quite standard competent but not brilliant blues rock.

But then there's some things he's done that still surprise and delight me.
I like his voice as well - i know the man himself says he didn't.

I guess some of his performances were spoiled by ridiculous touring schedules & drug abuse (?).

Marcus Singletary - Shame (Live) - YouTube

Wanted to throw this in there. But I think the fact he has fairly limited musical ability doesn't really invalidate his opinion on another's work. But his assessment seems way too one sided to be taken seriously. He literally had nothing good to say and tried to strip everything everyone had awarded Hendrix.

That said, I think Hendrix is a little overrated. xD

This guy is really no different than anybody else who has talked **** on any other musician. Only difference is, he took on one of the biggest giants I'm music and were talking about him here. Plus, he somehow got this **** published online.

I think the biggest fault people make when criticizing musicians is speaking like they're right. There is no right or wrong when it comes to this. I could say thy dream theater is a terrible band, but I'd at least admit that they're much better musicians than I am or will probably ever be.

This guy just needs to admit he's a schmuck and he could never even walk in Hendrix's shadow, then maybe he won't come of as such an ass.
