    Jimi is overrated, but musical masturbation didn't come in until the 70's when you had ten minute songs with 5 minute guitar solos.

    I expect no less from someone who listens to punk.

    Most of the kids who listen to punk here have no sense in music. They are force fed crap from their friends and they are like fucking sheep following the leader. No sense of their own.
     
  19. I love how everyone says Hendrix was overrated. Dude, the guy was one of the most creative quitarists EVER. Not just up to his time, but still ever. A lot of people think he's overrated because they think he just walked into the studio and just improvised these solos or something.

    He was a perfectionist. The whole playing the solo, then reversing the track so it played backwards was actually an idea he thought of at a restaurant and wrote it on a napkin. He was also known to write solos out of the blue on scrap paper without even playing them. The guy was just a musical genius. Whether or not you like his music, you gotta appreciate what he did for rock.

    That being said, I'm not even a big Ramones fan. I'm more of a Clash guy. But I definitly appreciate what the Ramones did for punk music in the US.

    ya know those distortion pedals the ramones used??? (and any punk band)

    well jimi hendrix was not only a guitar god, he was an electronics wizard who took frequency/tone manipulation to new levels by coming up with such things as the distortion and wah pedal.

    no jimi, no tone deaf ramone bros.

    Way to generalize, dipshit. I happen to enjoy all of my punk music, and not because it was force fed to me.

    And Hendrix was a damn good guitarist.
     
  22. Yeah I second that emotion. I've been listening to punk music since i was 13. I enjoy just about all different types (except the superpolished crap you get on MTV). But I'm highly appreciative of all types of music. Even if I don't necessarily like the type of music, I can still appreciate a good musician or a good band. I grew up listening to rock from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. So I like it all.

    basically the lack in solos is what keeps me from taking a liking to the new musicians coming out these days

    Hendrix was ok. Pretty overrated, but very innovative and he definitely didn't suck.

    But anybody who says the Ramones sucked or were tone deaf is an idiot. You might not like their style or their music, but I challenge you to name another rock band (besides maybe Slayer) that's as tight and perfectly tuned as the Ramones were. They were an awesome band, even though it's ok not to like them.

    Jimi Hendrix is overrated. My dad can play a lot of his stuff, but his music is still awesome.
