Gibson praises electric guitar legend Hendrix
According to the manufacturer, the late musician's innovations and accomplishments have still not been matched by any other rock star.
Gibson identified his track Purple Haze as a particularly significant record, crediting it with inspiring future revolutions in hard rock and metal.
The instrument manufacturer said the song features some highly ambitious overdubbing and tape manipulation, including heavily layered and reversed electric guitars.
In addition, it described the track's introduction as one of the heaviest riffs that had ever been recorded at that time.
The company added that "reliable sources" such as Pete Townshend of The Who and Eric Clapton from Cream are among those to have described Hendrix as the greatest rock guitarist of all time.Posted on 15 Sep 2009 16:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
