Jimi Hendrix was the definition of an icon. Totally unique, existing in an artistic world of his own creation, what he did for music, paying particular attention to guitar playing, was nothing short of incredible. This fact is made even more dazzling when you note that his mainstream music career lasted less than five years.

He brought a visceral, amped-up style of playing to the forefront of pop culture, totally blowing his peers out of the water, making the likes of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who all rethink their style. Hendrix was a wake-up call. He made each band’s respective axe-men feel as if they’d been usurped by this psychedelic breath of fresh air that had seemingly swept out of nowhere from across the Atlantic.

Without Hendrix, it is safe to say, any of the subsequent guitar heroes that followed in his wake would not have existed.
