Hendrix: Greatest Electric Guitarist Ever

A poll by Time magazine has voted Jimmy Hendrix as the greatest electric guitar player of all time. Now, Time isn’t exactly the last word when it comes to music, but they do know a thing or two about lists of people, and Hendrix has got to be in the conversation for greatest. So, no arguments from us. Perhaps more surprising is Guns n Roses guitarist Slash making it all the way to number 2; that’s not a slight on his ability, just surprise that it’s recognised. Blues legend B B King gets a nod at number 3. The top ten is rounded out by Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Chuck Berry, Les Paul, Yngwie Malmsteen and Prince. I suppose we should be encouraging and add a ‘so far’ to the title!
