Miss you strat hero
Little Jimmy ! You’re right, I do miss him
Or Little Jimmy King... miss him terribly too.
Didnt known theres someone like little Jimmy. Oh i mean little Hendrix
Little and Jimi Hendrix just don’t go together imho. He was quite thin, but he stood 5’11”. His hands were outrageously large for his height. At the time of his passing, he was the LARGEST persona in the rock world and will always be considered to be a progenitor of
an Historic change in rock music.
Fwiw, one of the people who extended Hendrix’ influence was little...read: short. SRV stood 5’5”. However, he also had hands that were larger than normal. Again, though, SRV was in no way a little person when it came to guitar.
When I read the header ‘Little Jimmy’, I also thought of Little Jimmy Dickens, who stood 4’11”. I have been watching the excellent documentary you Ken Burns on the history of country music that is showing on PBS this week.
Jimmy? Jimi? Little? What?
Good bit on Little Jimmy Dickens last night.
He is well known for his novelty songs, but most folks don't know he was an excellent country singer, very strong on ballads, always had a top band.
And his reputation was as the nicest guy in the world.
I though Hendrix was shorter, like 5,5. Guess i was wrong, im 5'10 myself
Who could forget lil Jimmy?
You watched Ken Burns last night too?
I imagine his Dad called him little Jimmy. By all accounts he was a sweet guy. The moniker fits.
I thought you meant Lil' Jimmy Norton.
jimi Hendrix’ childhood was not what one would want as I understand it.
Now that the title was edited, this thread is not as humorous. This cat still finds a humerus though.
I love that Guy!! I just laughed for 7+ min's!!!,,, TY
Just an observation.... when one sees the name Jimmy, one can bring untold numbers of people to mind. Only one of those people will have very much to do with a completely new approach to rock guitar. However, when one uses the name Jimi, every guitarist in the world knows exactly about whom one is writing.
Jimmie Vaughan has always been my favorite one and he’s neither a Jimi nor a Jimmy.
I love sense of humour here at TDPRI, you guys are amazeing
If I was forced to make a ridiculous list, he'd be the best electric blues guitarist on the planet bar none. Complete package: improvisation/seeker/composer, huge delta/afro pocket eclipsing not just his predecessor but those that followed, and ceaselessly inventive without the use of traditional harmonic methods of re-invention like you see in jazz giants etc.
Total package, when compared with many modern try hards he sounds fresher today than ever IMO.
