    Poor old Jimmy. Maybe he was a great guitarist but when he got on the Hooch he was
    playing to a different audience.

    weren't they all on da hooch?? lol Interestingly enough I only found out a few years after he died - he was "left-handed" never noticed at Woodstock etc. - he was one of the "greats" guitar wise! :-)

    I have NEVER heard anyone play like Jimmy! He was unique, the best. I still play all his albums at least weekly. Never has "The Star Spangled Banner" been played like he played it. It was recorded during the Vietnam war, and with his virtuosity with the guitar, you can hear the bombs falling over Vietnam. Unbelievable. What more could he have accomplished if the bloody drugs hadn't taken him far too soon. A musical genius.
