Bless.

I'm sure Jimi would be tickled and would probably want to join in.

It's nice to see the way that Jimi's compositional talents continue to be recognized - from Gil Evans (hooray!) to Nigel Kennedy (hmmm) to this chap here. A little discussed aspect of his work was the way in which he initially tried to get away from the American blues and r'n'b he served his apprenticeship with, instead identifying his songs with the newly emerging style of songwriting he heard coming from England. The results were explosive: songs like "Love Or Confusion", "The Wind Cries Mary", "Burning Of The Midnight Lamp" (to name but three) were quite unique. If Jimi hadn't been put under such pressure to be "more black" at the time of Black Power - causing him to switch to the funk-blues of his later style - who knows what he might have come up with? Ah well...

Nah. Should I? It seems like a bit of a chore. I don't really like hearing music I haven't heard before.

Think Adam, if newborn babes didn't listen to music they'd never heard before, all they'd know was their mothers heartbeats!

PS would that set them up to be drummers?
