I don't think the poor thing had a point here, Storm. Don't forget these are the nonsensical ramblings of a silly MJ fan.

Jimi would have gladly played with the Jackson 5 just like he had played behind Sam Cooke, B.B. King, Little Richard, Jackie Wilson, Ike and Tina Turner, and Wilson Pickett.

Jimi would NOT had given the MJ and Jackson 5 a wide berth because he enjoyed all kinds of music. He was no snob and felt comfortable with his people.

Lol I never said Jimi was a snob, you are just not getting it. I said Jimi would not want to associate with a creepy pedo. I stick by that. And I don't think He would have played with the Jackson 5, their styles were way too different.

James Burton (Elvis lead guitarist 69-77) played on Jackson 5 , 1st album. I think I could find link if I had to! James Burton became famous playing lead for Ricky Nelson in late 50's but did a lot of session work in the 60's from Merle Haggard to Jackson 5.

James Burton is my biggest influence since I've listened to him playing lead for Elvis. James played guitar to accent vocals ,fill licks~ more so than extended solo's. I wouldn't say he's my favorite guitar player ,that would be Eric Clapton.

Session players must get certain amount for session and it doesn't matter how much song sells ,they don't get anything else. James Burton couldn't recall what songs he played guitar on for Jackson 5. I bet he remembers playing lead on Merle Haggard's - Lonesome Fugitive!

James Burton played the guitar on Dale Hawkin's original "Suzie Q"

I checked out Gene Vincent's cover version. Rock n roll.

James Burton is never going to be talked about as a guitar hero like Eric Clapton. I have his one instrumental solo album he made in 1971 and it was a bit of a let down. However, he is one of my favorites because no one else quite sounds like him. He was definitely his best when playing behind Elvis. I tend to like hearing different styles of playing anyway and though Eric Clapton is popular, he is still not one of my favorites. I do like Clapton's incredible guitar work on the unrealeased Derek And The Domino's "Devil Road" What really surprises me is how great Gene Vincent was. Eddie Cochran was great also but they both had a completely different styles. Gene should have been much bigger than he was. I like checking out little known rockabilly from the fifties and sixties.

Eric Clapton met Elvis in 1972 at Memphis Movie theater. Elvis didn't really know who Clapton was ...

Yeah, I've read that story of Elvis's meeting with Eric Clapton in a Memphis movie theatre. I guess Clapton was in town doing a concert and one of the Stanley brothers invited Clapton. Elvis always liked renting movie theatres at night and watching films. Anyway, Elvis talked to Clapton and found out that he was a musician. He told Clapton that maybe he could jam with James Burton sometime. Actually, that would be cool since James is still alive and playing. Elvis also met with Zeppelin and John Paul Jones by himself at a separate time. Elvis traded him a very expansive watch for his Mickey Mouse wristwatch in Los Angeles.

So you accuse a 12 year old Michael Jackson of being a pedophile? That's how old he was when Jimi died. I hardly think that Jimi would have thought MJ was a pedophile but a cute and talented child.

It's a pity you allow your biased hatred distort your outlook and cause so much turmoil in your own.

Jimi Hendrix probably did know who Michael was as another recording artist in 1970 but he did not live long enough for it to matter. The argument is pointless.

It proves that you are extremely biased and would accuse MJ of anything when he was a child.

Haterz have always spread nasty lies about him even when he was a child. They did not care how much it hurt him.

Michael was not a pedophile as a small child but you are claiming that to know what Jimi Hendrix would have thought of Michael when Jimi was long gone before the clown's troubles begun in the mid nineties. There is no evidence that Hendrix ever gave Michael a second thought as the kid in The Jackson Five. Even if he did, the argument does not make any sense because you are trying to read the mind of a dead man that no longer existed.

That is stupid as hell.
