Jimi Hendrix: Like A Rolling Stone
Yes, there are going to be words this time. The last post was just to show that he was the best guitar player ever. If there was any doubt in your mind, that he couldn't do much without the electric sounds, that should put them to rest. Now, I knew Hendrix was a lefty, but I never knew that he used a right handed guitar. The reason because, he like to have the knobs on the top, where he could use them easier. He used his guitars as an electrical instrument, not just a musical instrument. Hendrix was just amazing. He loved Bob Dylan as well, his hair was an homage to Dylan. He heard Dylan's voice and got confidence to sing himself. Story goes, Hendrix used to have his girlfriends listen to Dylan records. They'd be almost annoyed like "I get it, I get it." But Hendrix would keep playing it, and say "No, no, keep listening." You have heard Hendrix's cover All Along the Watchtower, which was originally Dylan's. And also Dylan's favorite cover of one of his songs. But here is Like a Rolling Stone. Enjoy.
