    John, absolutely; he left a gap which will probably never be adequately filled by anyone.

    John, please trust your gift and RUN WITH IT! I'll be sixty a couple of months after you, and I just know we both have a lot of life and things to share with the world left in us, especially a talented musician such as yourself.
    I hope you don't choose to deprive the rest of us of your obvious abilities.
    Peace--white knight











    ohn, GO WITH IT! I'll be sixty right after you. WE still have a lot of life left in us.

    Great page indeed John; I only wish I'd been living in your town so I could have cast my vote for you!
    Please be sure and let us know when you'll be launching your music/video.
    Thanks so much for sharing!
    Peace Out--wk

    My only criticism of your site is that for people like me the blue on blue makes it hard to read. Apart from that I am working my way through it. Very interesting

    ^ But I have to vote for Stevie if I had to pick. Both lost to young- but I would go for SRV

    Different people different styles. Its like trying to compare the Sones and The Beatles. You can love them both.

    There were other indications to why Jimi Hendrix left (had to leave the USA). He already made friends with drugs and the facts of having huge depts, because of the drugs abuse. He was coloured, he was not scollered (educated) in music or on the guitar and his chances for a career in rock & roll, post Elvis Presley were next to none at the time in the USA, where the Civil Rights movement were on the march for better relations for all citizens.

    Fascinating article! I started it thinking I would read a little bit and then come back to it, but I could not stop. Thanks for posting that link.

    A huge Jimi Hendrix fan here playing the greatest blues song ever written:


    I have heard many renditions of Red House by Johnny and never does he throw in the closing quip, "Tha's okay, I still got my guitar." I think he left that to the master and only played this song in honor of Jimi, in appreciation of Jimi, and for the great blues song that it is. Johnny once announced the song saying he was playing it for Al Hendrix, Jimi's father, who presumably was in the audience that night.
