Jimi hendrix is so painfully overrated. Kids really beleive he did something new and expiremental
He literally just took blues music gave it a more poppy twang and sold it off to highschoolers like it was some rare unseen formula
Post more and give a solid reason why they are talentless
wow nice ebipk critique! you should really become a music critic with those hot, well thought, well written opinions!
just kidding your post is embarassing and stinks of your underaged contrarianism.
how about you tell me who's the greatest guitarist of all time?
Yep and his music sucks compared to the blues he tried so hard to immitate
he took something honest and real. Butchered it packaged it up and spoon fed it to edgy teenagers attached to the hippy sub culture .then for the finale choked himself to death on wine automatically solidifying him a legend despite his music being absolute watered down garbage
>all these technically uneducated faggots in this thread
Name one other artist who jammed a pick into their pickup switch to create a brand new tone. Oh wait, you cant. Just because he used influences from the past ( like every other genius) doesn't mean he didn't contribute heavily to the future of music
>fuck this place you retards would've obviously praise him if he was some obscure japanese dude.
What about all the blues artists through out history who are ten times better than jh that nobody mentions then
Nice try m8 back to reddit tho
The Kinks used distortion on You Really Got Me, in fact that was one of the first rock songs to feature it. However, Ike Turner may have been the real originator of electric guitar distortion with his 1951 song Rocket 88.
so did the beetles
doesn't mean they were good
the more popular the more folks you're gonna inspire
If you think he inspired people cause he was unique and progressive you're severly deluded
Like the Beatles, their influence is so big because they were ubiquitous.
They're only considered great in hindsight because of their influence
They only have that influence because they were hugely commercial successful
And people who wanted to be commercially successful as well copied them.
Thus making their imprint on music unable to be escaped because everyone wants money like Hendrix and the Beatles had.

I know this thread is b8 but early rock bands are way more guilty of this
