Okay, so I have heard this from so many people over the years, that when Hendrix was asked what it's like to be the best guitarist in the world he replies "I don't know, ask Rory Gallagher". This supposedly happened on the Mike Douglas show. I had a friend this past weekend tell me this when I was playing some Rory, I said it never happened, he said he's seen the footage, I tried to bet him but he wouldn't. So far he has not provided the footage. I've also heard people say Hendrix responded to this question, "ask Billy Gibbons" or "ask _______" fill in the blank. The only footage I've seen is Hendrix responding something to the effect of "maybe the best guitarist in this chair" referring to the chair he was sitting in. I know Hendrix toured a short time with ZZ Top and he was very complimentary to Billy Gibbons. I think he said Billy was his favorite guitar player at one time. But never "ask Billy Gibbons" It's my opinion this is all a bunch of bull. Your thoughts? Edit correction: It has been brought to my attention ZZ Top did not tour with Hendrix. It was instead the band Moving Sidewalks, which Billy Gibbons was in.
