I would not call him the heir to Jimi Hendrix, but as far as young guys go, I really dig Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers. When you watch him live, he make's slide guitar look so easy. One of the best slide players I have ever seen.
+1 on Joe. I completely forgot about him. Great player!Lester B. Flat said:If Jimi had lived he would probably be playing jazz. He died on a saturday and was scheduled to go in the studio with Miles Davis on the following monday. Too bad that never came to be.
There is a new guy named Joe Bonamassa who is pretty good. He's 29. Blues/rock style player. You might find a sample on youtube.
Yikes.....I figured someone would say that. No offense to John Mayer, but a little different....gerald guerrero said:John Mayer. hahahah :zzz:
washburned said:Mayer has certainly got the respect and recognition of a lot of "BIG" names...Clapton, King, Guy, etc...and his list of "guest" credits is getting ridiculous. Now who can answer the second question?
I am a firm beleiver that there is always some way, some style that will come along and change things. Some one will find something that sets them apart or takes their sound to a new level.rippinglickfest said:Its pretty tough to follow a guy like Hendrix........I dont think its possible for anybody to have the impact he did. Its definitely a lot harder to be original in todays terms. Whats left really?............play guitar telepathically?
