Look at any "Greatest Guitarists" list and one might be noticeably missing. Terry Kath. He died of an accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1978, one week shy of his 32nd birthday. He has been praised for his guitar skills and described by rock author Corbin Reiff as "one of the most criminally underrated guitarists to have ever set finger to fretboard". He might not be on the lists but he had a special relationship with one who leads many lists, Jimi Hendrix. Jimi is reportedly to have said to the producer of Chicago, "I'm pretty good man, but this cat blows me away." Quite an honor considering the author of those words. Here's Terry's tribute to Jimi Hendrix:
"One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don't know." ~~~Groucho Marx in Animal Crackers (1930)
this is a small story from a SRV biography, i will let the story speak for itself. On the Aug 26th Stevie was playing on a bill with Clapton and Cray. There was a photographer there from Fender guitars taking promo pictures of Stevie for his signature guitar that was soon to be released. As Stevie was performing Voodoo Chile the photog up and left the pit and stopped taking pictures, back stage Stevie asked why he left abruptly, to which the photog said " i got chills, i felt like i was watching Jimi all over again."
there are so many great guitarist out there, its hard to say who is #1, personal preference, if you ask me, i put Stevie ahead of both Jimi and Clapton, Clapton for sure.
This clip was taken from his lat tour and he is amazing in it.
