Jimi Hendrix, Legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist and one of the most influential artists of all time. His time at the top before his untimely death at the age of 27 was woefully short – about three years – but songs like Hey Joe, Purple Haze and Foxy Lady, and albums as Are You Experienced, have become classics. Hendrix is the third, behind the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, on VH1′s list of 100 greatest artists of rock and roll. CONVENTIONAL WISDOM rock guitarist greatest of all time? Many musicians and commentators think so, and his game still sounds as fresh, passionate and energetic as he did in his heyday. THE OPINION Jimmy Page, Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Duane Allman and Eddie Van Halen have their cheerleaders for that coveted title. CONVERSATION Her dramatic performance, a virtuoso of the Star-Spangled Banner at the Woodstock Festival in 1969 was a historic performance. The British music journalist Charles Shaar Murray has referred to it as the most profound statement about the U.S. then, when the country was embroiled in Vietnam. Hendrix said the talk show host Dick Cavett felt that his version was “beautiful.” Then, some saw it as a fresh take on the U.S. national anthem, while others that their actions were a disgrace and an affront to the flag.
