The 1960s are said to be the most prolific decade in all of music Many bands of this decade have proven to have enormous effects on music as we know it Jimi Hendrix is said to be the greatest rock and roll guitarist of all time The greats like Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana have all said that he truly made the guitar speak and transformed it into an art The Doors were true innovators and turned rock into an art form by skillfully blending rock and poetry No one can deny that they were revolutionaries who set the standard for rock being a defiant type of music but with meaning in its lyrics It is impossible to talk about musical influence and not speak of The Beatles No other band has had more number one singles and no other band has held the number one spot in musics all time greats etc lists Not one but two of its band members Lennon and McCartney are said to be the greatest songwriters and musicians of all time All this echoes in their music as it does for all three bands Narrowing it down to three bands was a difficult task but these three bands may very well have had the greatest effect on music as we know it today Jimi Hendrix is widely recognized as one of the most creative and influential musicians of the 20th century He pioneered the explosive popularity of the electric guitar His innovative style of combining fuzz feedback and controlled distortion created a new musical form Unable to read or write music it is nothing short of remarkable that Hendrixs unreal rise in music took place over a period of only four years His unique musical language continues to influence lots of modern musicians from George Clinton to Miles Davis and Steve Vai to Jonny Lang Jimi Hendrix was born Johnny Allen Hendrix on November 27 1942
