    What They Said About THE MAN

    Pick a favorite quote about Jimi (posting of photo of author optional, but would be so cool):
    *********************************************
    The legendary Les Paul


    12.1965
    "I went in and stood in the doorway to listen. I was really impressed by what I heard. Yes indeed, that dude was really working his guitar over. He was bending string, playing funky as hell. I'd never seen anyone so radical."

    Re: What They Said About THE MAN



    Said by this man:

    "What impressed me most about Jimi Hendrix was his stage performance, his cool image and totally wild stage moves (like burning his guitar and torrents of feedback off the Marshalls). He was the ultimate showman. His guitar riffs are not that difficult by today's standards, so it was more the fact that he was very flamboyant and different from his peers that impressed me the most, plus the extreme feeling that he put into his blues playing. That's why I like to cover a lot of his songs, which are also in my vocal range."

    "When I saw him supporting The Who, I couldn't believe it. I felt excited, overwhelmed and also completely deflated. I'd put a lot of work into playing guitar and was thinking I was pretty damned good. But Hendrix came along and destroyed everyone."

    Eddie Kramer


    Regarding 'Star Spangled Banner' : "I thought it was a pretty unique rendition of the song. I was intrigued by the fact that Jimi was able to make the guitar sound like an early synthesizer, pre-dating the guitar synthesizer which came years later."

    "Jimi's music is so universal. And kids who are getting into rock 'n' roll guitar, who's the go-to guy? It's Jimi. That's the first place you start and everything else comes from that."

    Re: What They Said About THE MAN



    August 1966
    "I was the hot-shot guitarist on the block. I thought I was it. I'd never heard of Hendrix. Then someone said, 'You've got to see the guitar player with John Hammond.' I went straight across the street and saw him. Hendrix knew who I was and, that day, in front of my eyes, he burned me to death. H-bombs were going off, guided missles were flying - I can't tell you the sounds he was getting out of his instrument. He was getting every sound I was ever to hear him get with a Stratocaster, a twin, a Maestro fuzztone and that was all. He just got right up in my face with that axe and I didn't even want to pick up a guitar for the next year."

    "Jimi would get up - jeans, suede jacket, big electric hairdo - and just blow everybody away. I remember thinking I might as well take up another instrument."

    Joe Satriani


    1992
    "Two months after my 14th birthday, Jimi Hendrix died -- and after that I really committed myself to learning how to play guitar. The concept of him not being around anymore to make records was so horrible, and when he passed away, I didn’t know what to do. The only positive step I could take was to start playing in earnest myself -- to fill the void in my life. ... My affection for Hendrix is difficult to explain, as are any emotional feelings and events in life. I remember listening to Hendrix records when I was very young, probably around 10 years old, and being transfixed. Listening to his music was a deep, cathartic experience that was a little embarrassing to talk about as a little kid -- I didn’t see anyone else my age flipping out when they put on ‘Third Stone from the Sun.’ I had to get ready to listen to that song, so I knew it was doing something to me. The first time I listened to it all the way through, I felt as if my heart and mind had just been put through the wringer -- and it’s difficult for a 10-year-old to put those feelings into words. To be able to listen to his music like that was like a gift from one human being to another."

    I think Jimi would have liked Eruption. -- "have you seen junior's grades?".

    he would of also liked Cliffs of Dover by Santraini
