The Guitarist Jimi Hendrix Viewed As The “Greatest”

Jimi Hendrix regularly tops polls to find the best guitarist of all time. For generations of musicians, he is the cornerstone of the electric guitar – an innovator, and a technically gifted artist who was able to raise the bar at practically every single show.

Yet offstage, Jimi Hendrix was shy, humble. As a kid, he used to tape Buddy Guy live shows, soaking up the blues guitarist’s incredible style, and blending it with his own. A youthful veteran of the chitlin circuit, he played with the Isley Brothers and Little Richard, encountering a host of inspiration with rhythm ‘n’ blues in full swing.

Landing in London in 1966, he immediately asked to jam with Cream – and famously blew Eric Clapton offstage within seconds, performing his radical take on Howlin Wolf’s blues staple ‘Killing Floor’.

A few days after his epochal performance at Woodstock, Jimi Hendrix sat down on the Dick Cavett Show for a high profile coast-to-coast interview. Praised by the host as the greatest guitarist on the planet, the humble musician smiled and joked “the greatest sitting in this chair, maybe”.
