Band of Gypsys – Who Knows (Live at the Fillmore East in 1970)
While my son and I were out running errands this morning, I was rocking Band of Gypsys in the car. A child needs to be taught who the greatest guitar player in the history of the instrument is. Jimi Hendrix. “Someday, there will be someone as good as Jimi Hendrix on the guitar, though, right Dad?”
Maybe, son. I don’t know. He’s the Shakespeare of guitar, and that’s a tough act to follow.
[Ed. Note: Sadly, they took down the original video, and I haven’t been able to find a new one. Once and if I do, I’ll plug it in.]
