:eek: I cannot believe you said that! I was thinking exactly the same person - well, actually many people. Him and Chris Brooks stand out though. They are both VERY different, but brilliant. And I think therein lies the problem - guitarists span over so many musical genres that picking a singular great would be impossible, and getting anyone to agree with you.. well... forget about it.

Although the dude from Los Lonely Boys plays similar style to Hendrix. No one right now is like hendrix. Hendrix was good but it was it outragious style that changed the face of guitar that made him great. No one has the impact...cuz to me his impact is what makes Hendrix. He is damn good thouhgh, dont get me wrong...
WWSD? What would stevie do?

Yeah, I'm pretty much with Polera on this one. Guitar music alone has become way too diverse and in depth to start labelling who the best is. But I like it that way. It's what puts truth to the saying "there's always someone better out there." So long as we've got a guy that can do something that another guitarist can't do, I'm happy.

i dont think we will ever have another jimi hendrix, there was an elvis presley then the beatles then jimi hendrix and then led zepplin and then sorta van halen and then joe satriani

we will see- but if you look at who i listed the influence got smaller and smaller

till today where everyone has their indi band they like.
whatever - we are definetly overdue a modern day jimi.
guess its up to us. the next generation.
When it comes down to it, our guitar's will always be there for us. :rolleyes:

I agree with for the most part...but to mention satch's name there..is a bit out of context...

My 2 cents...

@Polera may be correct.  there may never be another Hendrix.  But it is fun to discuss and annoy each other with our suggestions😉.  And of course part of the process must be to define what is meant by "new Hendrix".   Someone that sounds like him?  Someone that approaches his skill but doesn't necessarily sound like him?  Or someone that is going to have a lasting influence on future guitarists?


What ever your criteria for another Hendrix here are a couple that I have seen that may approach one of these definitions:


Eric Gales was called a "guitar tornado" by some magazine.  https://www.ericgales.com  My wife and I saw him on the Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea as well as a couple local shows.  Unbelievable guitar chops.  Interestingly, coincidentally?, also left handed, like Jimi,  but  he plays left handed on a right handed guitar, meaning he looks down and sees the strings in reverse position.  


Christone "Kingfish" Ingram.   https://www.christonekingfishingram.com   We were also introduced to him on the KTBAS cruise.  And we were fortunate to get a chance to chat with him.  He is not only an awesome guitarsit but just a really nice kid.


Jarekus Singleton.   https://www.alligator.com/artists/Jarekus-Singleton/    If memory serves, and it rarely does anymore, he was a top seeded high school basketball player.  I tried to find where I read that fact before writing this but couldn't.  But apparently he chose a music career over sposrts.  We saw him at a small venue here close to my house.  A tremendous entertainer and great guitarist.  It is purely impression, and no data to back up my impression, but I sense he is struggling.  I hope he gets rewarded for his careert decision!

Music is art, so a musician is an artist. There are no new, or no replacements, too much of the artists individual personality is presented in their work. The good news is that we can appreciate more than one artist's work. The topic is still entertaining to discuss, and this type of thread keeps the forum fun, so thank you.

"The topic is still entertaining to discuss".  I did not realize I was necroposting to the extent that I did!  I'm not sure how a post from 2005 came up in my search for new postings.  but it did and I didn't catch the date.  After apologies I will just say I hope my list of a few new guitar slingers will find some readers with interest.

Chuck Berry - Jimi Hendrix - EvH. They are for me the landmarks in the history of Rockguitar.


Sry for bad English.
