I realize that Jimi isn't metal, but he was a great guitarist.
I was just wondering if there were any Hendrix fans on here. :)

Jimi's good, but a tad overrated methinks

I disagree. I've listened to alot of his stuff and I've never once thought the word mediocre or average.

I never said he was mediocre or average, merely that he is overrated, doesn't make him not good, just makes him not as good as his fanboys will have you believe

Well there is going to be fanboys for every band that will tell you that they are the greatest thing to happen to music since the guitar was invented.

Well no, I am a Nile fanboy, but the best thing to happen to music since the invention of the guitar is CLEARLY the creation of Jazz

That can be applied to many, many things in life. Mostly movies. (Star Wars, Pulp Fiction, Nightmare Before Christmas, Dark Knight, Twilight, etc etc etc)

None of those movies with the exception of Twilight are overate, mediocre or average.

Well, that's just how I feel, personally. The fanboys/girls just kind of killed those for me.
Then again, I guess I can't judge since I haven't watched movies in forever.

Over rated my ass :grumble: I can't believe the lack of appreciation for Jimi on this board. There's a reason he's considered a legend people! This guy didn't just play guitar he went places with it, "Voodoo Child" alone was enough to get me into hard rock. Is there no love left for this amazing musician anymore? :damnit:
