Paul McCartney is a bassist rather than a traditional guitarist, and although it’s not the instrument he specialises in, he still has a discernable love of the instrument. Long before he ever dreamed of holding a four-string guitar, he had ambitions to replicate his icon Eddie Cochran and strum with the best of them. That dream never came to the realisation, but he never stopped admiring those who could wield an axe. Picking his favourite player of all time is a straightforward question for McCartney, and the only applicable answer is Jimi Hendrix.

The two were in a similar friendship circle and grew tight around the summer of 1967 when McCartney witnessed Hendrix perform a magic track at London’s Saville Theatre. The concert was only days after the release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, but that fact didn’t stop the guitarist from covering the titular track after learning Macca and George Harrison were in attendance.
