Jimi Hendrix

Jimi, we still call you the GREATEST guitarist of all time.

He's certainly my favorite guitarist of all time. He's so influental, it's scary. Name a guitarist, and if he or she wasn't influenced by Jimi directly, he or she was influenced by someone who was.

will the wind ever remember the names it has blown in the past?

I had a copy of Are You Experienced when I was four.

Rick, four? Geez and I was proud to be listening to The Stones at age four. You got me beat.

For a different take on Jimi's music listen to the Band of Gnawa playing a superb version of the classic from the Band of Gypsies album, "Who Knows" , at the 10th Essaouira Gnaoua and World Music Festival held in June 2007. For other rock fans, the set includes great Gnaoua-inspired versions of other rock classics like Gallow's Pole and Immigrant Song.

French guitarists Louis Bertignac and Jean-Philippe Rykiel lead the Band of Gnawa and can certainly be mentioned on the same page as Jimi Hendrix. Take alisten and let me know what you think.

You can read about the Essaouira festival and listen to much more of its music over on my blog.
