Hendrix was an introverted depressive guy who thrived most in the studio where he remains one of the most creative wizards in music

you can't normalize Hendrix playing with words like "technical"...he has a style that remains as befuddling as its been influential
You're way, way off on your "style of Rock/haberdashery" correlation. Technically it was the Beach Boys and their fans that wore the Hawaiian shirts. (You know nowadays) Jimi Hendrix fans wear ... wait for it ... Jimi Hendrix tee shirts. thanks a lot Walmart.

Jimi did care. He was self conscious about his singing voice. He admired other musicians. He practiced all the time. He wrote to he father all the time. To me that doesn't add up to not caring.

Jimi Hendrix burnt his guitar because he was also an entertainer. That speaks volumes about how people want to be entertained. The crowd isn't there just for the music. There are there to be entertained by the visuals too. I don't think that thought was lost on Hendrix.

I think he didn't care about his status as a "guitar god" and his live performances didn't reflect someone who was concerned with being known for technical mastery

he said something to the effect of just wanting to push boundaries in the studio

I have one of those Hendrix shirts... purchased at Walmart 9 years ago. I wore it for the first time at a Santana/Allman Brothers show. They started playing music over the sound system for about 20 minutes or so before the show started... all Hendrix songs. I thought it was an appropriate coincidence.

Which is what makes his technical playing more impressive than your standard Technical Player.

You got busted appreciating technical performances bro, just own it.

We as a new couple in 1965 went to Finsbury Park to see the Beatles..just screaming hysterical females, way above the sounds of the Beatles, found a video on youtube recently of that night and they sounded like who gives one, nobody is listening, so honestly was very off.....not in tune even....
