Re: Blackmores best guitar work (Lp`s or CD`s)


blackmore never said he admired hendrix the guitarist, there isnt that much to admire.
it was hendrix's stage presence and being a showman which he thought was impressive.

Mofo, yes, Freedom, Ezy Rider, Drifting, the Band Of Gypsys songs (for example, the increbile amount of great riffs in Message Of Love and Power Of Soul - just two tracks!), Room Full Of Mirrors, Hey Baby... IMO, there was a new kind of feel to melody and harmonics, with the cost of volume and in-your-face attitude. The guy grew up musically so much in a year or two.

Have you heard Steve Lukather's version of Freedom, btw? When I heard he'd done it, I was sure I don't want to hear it. But when I did, I liked it a lot.

Just listened to Live At Filmore East. I have to say it adds a little to BOG. They sure picked the best versions for the original album.

Ed, I think I've noticed a pattern in RB's comments on Hendrix during the decades: he's been admitting the influence more and more, whereas the praise for Claton has gone the other way...



I haven't heard of Lukather's version of Freedom...perhaps I need to check it out. What release is it on?




I don't remember, it's either an album called Luke or Lukather. I'm not a fan of his, so I don't have any albums. A mate played the track to me, knowing I'm a Hendrix fan.

Paganini, he has admitted admiring the songwriting of Hendrix. His positive comments of JH's guitar playing have been more implied. But compare, for example, Van Halen's listof influences. He rarely mentions RB, but Clapton instead. Yet his playing is much closer to RB's than EC's.

I think where JH's influence on RB is the clearest is the use of whammy bar and feedback.

Think he peaked electric wise during the Rising-Long Live Rock ‘n’ Roll-Down To Earth period. These days he’s reinvented himself acoustic wise. His acoustic playing in recent times is absolute remarkable. He’s a genius. When he plays Beyond The Sunset (preferably to a smaller crowd) it’s more than magic, it’s astonishing!

Re: Blackmores best guitar work (Lp`s or CD`s)


rezi, he said many times in interviews hendrix isnt that good of a player....even said he was overrated once, and he is right.

the whammy bar he doesnt use since the eighties, the feedback is not a hendrix trademark but pete from the who.
and the songwriting of hendrix isnt anything like blackmore's.
i study music theory and it is very obvious they have a totally different approach to songwriting and playing the guitar.

it is the stage act which blackmore copied from hendrix, but only to a certain extent.
and even that he stopped doing in the late eighties.
sure every musician "borrows" some stuff from others, BUT the better ones stop doing that after a while and work on their own unique style and master that.
blackmore is one of those few emoticon

Good points!

But I still think RB has deliberately belittled JH's influence on his playing.

 'Deliberately'? If you mean that Blackmore simply wasn't that greatly influenced by Hendrix and is honest enough to say so - no matter what the media or even music fans think, or want to read/hear Blackmore say regarding Blackmore's influences - than I have to agree. emoticon

As your smiley hints, you know well I didn't mean what you wrote!

Let's just say that I believe RB was hugely influenced by Hendrix, not justthe stage antics and overall image, but his songwriting (I remember RB saying in the 80s that he is tired of looking at JH for influence and wants to do more melodic music, referring to the AOR slant of the 80s Rainbow) and guitar playing. When RB said that he didn't think JH wasn't such a great player, I understand it primarily pointed to JH's often out-of-tune playing, the occasional bum notes and the "non-classical" style. He has underlined what the bad aspects of JH's guitar work, rather than the good. Or, in a way I can see RB saying that JH's guitar work didn't live up to the songwriting, the stage antics (I've always preferred the guy just playing) and the overall image.
