    I will tell u a story that I also read. Supposedly, Eric clapton was dope. His haristyle was all over the town. His blues made all people worship him. People even painted "Clapton is GOD" on wall. It was like that until in 1 of his gags/concert another person comes forth and challenges his. That was Hendrix and thus the story begins. Hendrix played and made the **** come out of Clapton's Managers. They thought that they were out of job now. Sounds like a fairy tale doesn't it? After that Jimi became instantly famous as the one that challenged GOD because clapton could do nothing wrong.

    Simply put, jimi was out of this world for his time and no one could compare to him. I bet even steve vai can't give the feel that he gave using those instruments of his time. Jimi all the way.
