Jimi Hendrix was a master of covering other people’s songs and making them sound like his own. Not only are some of his most famous recordings cover versions – Hey Joe, All Along the Watchtower – if you have a look at any of The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s setlists it’s rare that you will find one without a few covers thrown in there.
Other bands covering Hendrix, however, that’s another thing entirely. Many have tried but few have succeeded. We’ve gone and listened to all the Hendrix covers we could find and chosen 10 of the best (or at least the most interesting).
Better than the original or blasphemy? Let us know what you think.
