Furthermore, The Velvet Undergorund put out better records than Hendrix ever did.
I did write this though (it's at the top of the page):
It's just about being cognizant of and giving the respect that's due. I don't know why you have to bring in all this other baggage just to state a plain fact to anyone that knows anything about playing a guitar.
