Jimi Hendrix named greatest electric guitar player
Time magazine has named Jimi Hendrix as the greatest electric guitar player of all time.
However, Hendrix was given the top spot on the strength of his unique fusion of genres such as blues, rock and psychedelia.
"No-one wielded a guitar with as much charisma," Mr Tyrangiel commented.
Hendrix, who died in 1970, was followed in the list by former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, who was described as a "remarkably precise player".
Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones was also included in the top ten, partly because he has written more memorable electric guitar riffs "than anyone else in rock 'n' roll".
Mr Tyrangiel highlighted the hook to (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction as a good example of this, along with the riffs to Start Me Up, Gimme Shelter and Jumpin' Jack Flash.Posted on 20 Aug 2009 11:51 to category : Band / Celebrity News
