Russ, I know! I want to go so bad, but as usual, no one to go with. I am really desperate for some Rockin friends. I have friends but...none of them would recognize any of those names.

That sounds amazing!

Hey, I have a question, and a tribute show seems related. Do you think guitarists are all that special? I don't mean this demeaningly and I don't want to bring on the wrath of the rock gods...

I'm wondering because Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and even a girl in Korea I think can sound a lot like Hendrix in their playing. So is it how they perform live? Is it how they relate to other players in the band? Is it singing too, so is Kenny less impressive?

I guess it comes down to intent and authenticity.

This is only a pondering, not a conclusion. I have HUGE respect for guitarists, but like if someone painted like I do and you had trouble telling the difference?

Great site.
You might be interested in a collection of sixties and seventies classic albums, and also there is photograph I took of Jimi Hendrix at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970. Which you're welcome to use if you like it.
I'm trying to digest '... a girl in Korea I think can sound like Hendrix' ... takes all sorts.
