Jimi Hendrix selected as world’s greatest guitarist… Raise your hand if you’re surprised?
Granted, there are a lot of amazing guitar players out there, and when techniques start to come into play insofar as our having a subjective preference, then it does become a litte more difficult to officially name someone “the world’s greatest guitarist” Nevertheless, I’d bet that very few people in the world would be able to say they thought that Jimi Hendrix wasn’tgreat. He might very well be the one universal “great guitarist” regardless of who you ask, which is a major reason why Jimi would be worthy of such a title.
– From MSN.com — Jimi Hendrix has been named the greatest guitarist in history by RollingStone magazine.The revered music publication put the Purple Haze legend ahead of Eric Clapton and Led Zeppelin star Jimmy Page, who came in at second and third respectively. A team of experts from the industry, including guitarist Tom Morello, came together with editors to decide their favourite guitar player for the poll, which was released on Wednesday (23Nov11). Morello says, “Jimi Hendrix exploded our idea of what rock music could be: He manipulated the guitar, the whammy bar, the studio and the stage.” The countdown also features Keith Richards, Jeff Beck, B.B. King, Chuck Berry, Eddie Van Halen, Duane Allman and Pete Townshend. –
This page is the biggest tag fail ever  he only released 'first rays/cry of love' and arguably 'band of gypsy's' under the name Jimi Hendrix, everything else would be the experience.. And sure 'woodstock' and some live ones with billy cox could be considered not 'experience' but this is a fail lolz....
