Greatest Rock Band Of All Time
« see full list
The Jimi Hendrix Experience
How are they not the best band, they should be at least in the top 10.
They may not have the best drummer or bassist but noel and mitch are still very good. And they have the best guitarist ever!
About 90% of these bands don't even compare to The Jimi Hendrix Experience. They don't even come close
I consider all Jimi Hendrix led bands to be beyond any other rock artist in any given milieu. The only reason I can think of JHE languishing at 28 at the time of writing this, is that even to understand JHE you need to be an experienced musician; his riffs created genres, his lightning fast solos are to this day considered to be untouchable, he was the first to use guitar feedback as music, Mitch Mitchell's drums CANNOT be recreated by anybody other than himself.
Whoever brings a little bit of Hendrix into their playing style is considered to be a gifted player. Joe Satriani, Slash, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Frusciante (RHCP) among others all consider Jimi Hendrix to be their influence. Heck, even Jimmy Page acknowledged Hendrix to be the greatest.
This goes for the amazing Eric Clapton band Cream as well.
There was Before Jimi Hendrix, and there is after Jimi Hendrix. I know I was there. Every rock musician since, just like every jazz musician after Louis Armstrong, has some of Jimi Hendrix in him; it's as simple as that. When he appeared, he put the soul in rock.
Despite Hendrix being the greatest guitarist ever, Mitch Mitchell (Drummer) was one of the fastest drummers ever. Noel Redding (Bass) went on to make his own band (The Noel Redding Band). Metallica's Thrash Metal crap makes me want to puke. Hendrix would make Hammett look like a phony any day.
I love the Experience, have 2 of their cd's but the reason they aren't up there in the list is because Jimi Hendrix IS the band, no disrespect to the other guys but they are shadowed, Jimi always had a back up band, and it wasn't always this, they are the best of his bands, but he had Band of Gypsies and a couple other groups at different times. This is why groups like David Bowie and The Spiders From Mars aren't in the list, because the BAND isn't noticed, the LEGEND is, and what a super legend is Hendrix! Rock and Roll hall of famer and The Rolling Stones best guitarist ever.
I think people voting might not associate Hendrix's band with Hendrix himself. Anyway, this band should be easily top 3 with the Beatles and Pink Floyd. No one can play guitar quite like Jimi, and the albums he made are just so epic. The fact that this band is at #30 shows that most people have no idea what rock and roll is.
Ha Ha Ha Ha. I laugh at others stupidity. Hendrix should be #2 next to Led Zeppelin. But come on obviously people are idiots. I just recently looked and Panic! At the Disco was ahead of Hendrix. Name three songs Panic! At the Disco have... You can't can you. That's because they're no better than most of these other bands nowadays. I bet in three years they will be forgotten. Disgraceful.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience are a supergroup. Panic! At the Disco are not a supergroup. Linkin Park are not a supergroup. Blink 182 are not a supergroup. I'm 13, and I know who Jimi Hendrix are. He rocks! He was a musical genius! Mitch Mitchell too! They should be at least at top 5.
The most incredible mix of talent Ill agree with Led Zeppelin being first but the Jimi Hendrix experience definitely deserve a place in the top ten Metallica are a good band but are definitely no match for Jimi and his band who shaped rock n roll with the most amazing ray of talent
Are you joking? 62? How can you place Lighthouse A7X and Fallout Boy over Jimi Hendrix? HENDRIX A GOD OF ROCK!
The best closly followed by Queen some great guitar style makes this band really great as well as awesome style and personality they have the best guitarest of all time. RIP Jimi
