I have not listened to a lot of Hendrix…probably due to the bluesy bit…definitely not my sound. J always lists Ron Asheton as the primary influence on his sound. Interestingly I saw a show on the Stooges awhile back, they related being heavily influenced by Hendrix. Apparently someone brought a copy of one of his albums to the Stooges home and they all listened to it for days. So I guess in a round about way your right about the influence on J’s sound. I saw the Chili Peppers last year, was amazed at how much the guitar players sounds was similar to Hendrix (the little I know of his sound)…not enuf to make me want to pick up his solo stuff though.
