Now Jimi Hendrix has great posthumous releases. Wacko?

The clearance bins, used cd sections, flea markets, garage sales and landfills...

Jimi Hendrix happens to have the longest top ten chart span of any other dead artist. They have been releasing posthumous albums on Hendrix for over forty years, hundreds of of hours of previously unreleased material. Of course, floons skip over that kind of everlasting success in favor of a disgraced clown, Michael Jackson. Besides, Jimi Hendrix has a solid legacy and was recently honored with his own postage stamp. He is forever a rock legend and the greatest single rock guitarist of all time. His estate apparently does not need overblown hype.

Obviously, Wacko will always be a disgusting worm and he will never be vindicated. I laugh.

Jimi Hendrix is by far the greatest musician that ever lived. Of course, clueless Michael Jackson floons would ignore the truth in favor of a beatboxing clown that popped his wide clown mouth to mock the sound of computerized drums. The dumb grasshopper could barely sign his name and never played an instrument in his entire life. Michael Jackson was obviously mentally retarded, shit and pissed in his trousers, collected dollies, molested tots inside secret sex closets, snorted cocaine, climbed trees like a monkey, sang to mannequins and tortured, abused animals in their tight cages. The grossly untalented clown certainly was all hype and no substance for the five year old kiddie set from the by gone era of the seventies and eighties. His tarnished legacy degraded, his memory in ruins. Michael Jackson is now known as a disgusting pedophile and mental midget. The freak was a carnival sideshow with Snake Woman, Lobster Boy and The Bearded Lady. He had the eyes of a llama, no nose, Joan Crawford lips and an Bubbles shaven butt imbedded into his wet chin. The clown sniffed soiled diapers and collected dirty boy briefs as he masturbated with frenzy to the stink of sexual sweat. His employees, including the honorable Dr Conrad Murray had to plug their noses to be in the same room with Mr Diarrhea man. His nude death was hilarious. His large llama eyes glazed as they rolled back into his empty skull forever.

Jimi Hendrix definitely wins over the dead pedophile Michael Jackson.

Nice to hear that real music is being released. We are flooded w garbage. I don't think popular music has offered anything since 90's alt.

Im a songwriter and mjs music has always left me slightly nauseated.( this nausea thing happens a lot w mj, his looks, deeds, music) Its like too much sugar and sweet and frankly it sux! Mjs music was product. Salable garbage to feed the masses. And make tons of money for lots of ppl.

Music is art. His music was product and ppl eat that easy listening pop crap right up.

Jimi otoh....:)

Great news. The Cry Of Love is a masterpiece. And Rainbow Bridge has "Earth Blues".

Most of the songs on Cry Of Love and Rainbow were re released on the First Rays Of The New Rising Sun and Voodoo Soup compilation albums in the late 90's or early 00's...though.

Love the guitars in the song, but would have been so much better with lead vocals by Hendrix. Tragic such a talented, gifted musician passed away at such a young age.

In late 1969 and 1970 he started to experiment with a funkier sound with Billy Cox on bass, but the heavy touring was wearing him out. He had the long Cry Of Love American tour (which included a concert at the Atlanta Pop Festival on 4th July, 1970 in front of 500,000 people) and then the massive Isle of Wight festival in England under his belt before he died.

Well, since Michael was mentioned here on the thread...i would like to share my opinion about him (if that's okay with you) Talented singer/dancer...no doubt. But after the Thriller album he started to slip mentally. If you want to see something really nuts, check out the video "You Are Not Alone". Lol!

I was curious how The Rolling Stones were holding up on their current tour so I watched one of their latest concerts on You Tube. I have to say that I am mighty impressed with the whole band. Jagger is still in constant motion on stage, Kieth Richards still delivered flawless guitar licks, Ronnie Wood looks and plays the same and Charlie Watts never missed a beat. Amazing, really. Cher has the top grossing tour for a female artist and she is still selling out shows as well. I can only imagine what Jimi Hendrix would have achieved had he lived past 1970. It just goes to show you how older artists can still be successful for the long haul and keep playing for over fifty years.

Good to hear the Rolling Stones are still doing well - they were one of my favorite groups back in the day. What was the name of the video you watched from their current tour? I'd love to check it out. Those guys must be in their early 70's, or at least late 60's, by now and they can still put out the endless energy and deliver flawless music. Very impressive!

Jimi Hendrix would have definitely been there, too, as he was one of the greatest guitar players ever. Such a musical genius!

Yes, it does go to show that good musicians and great music never lose their popularity. I don't know if the same will be said about Michael Jackson's music as time goes on. His popularity seems to be declining as we speak.

I was trying to find a show that was done this year and this one was rock in Rio this past May. It is on You Tube. I am amazed that Mick Jagger is constantly in motion. It is really a sight to see. When I saw The Rolling Stones in Boston in 2005, I thought they were done. They seem to be like a well oiled machine. They've actually gotten better. It is incredible when you realize how many younger bands are way past their prime. The Stones are like vampires. The songs are all the same, but Mick Jagger obviously refuses to give up. It is like he is pushing the band with his energy. Considering that Keith Richards should be dead by now, I am quite impressed. Jimi Hendrix was such a tragic loss, but that is how it is sometimes.

Keef had a close call when he fell from the palm tree and hit his head. I've seen them live at the Olympic Stadium here in Finland two times. Licks Tour and the Bigger Bang Tour. The first concert was better. Wild Horses on a hot summer night is something i will never forget. When the concert started and Charlie walked to his drum kit, the roar from the crowd was loud. The loudest roar I've ever hear on that stadium. Great memories!

An ex co worker of mine was a huge Rolling Stones fan and had invited me to go with him to see The Stones opening night in Boston, 2005. It is the biggest concert I've ever been to. The crowd was awesome. I thought The Rolling Stones were a bit tired then, but it was still a great time. The disco set was my bathroom break, They did "Shattered" "Miss You" and songs like that. I would have rather heard a blues set. I was impressed the most by Charlie Watts. He never missed a beat. Obviously, they must have just started off rough. Years later, seeing what they can pull off, it is quite surprising. Younger bands are old and done, but The Stones are still putting out an impressive show. Mind you, it is all songs they've done thousands of times, but they still enjoy being rock stars. Keith Richards looks like a hunchback, but his can still play the guitar and he makes it look easy. I can not believe those guys still want to play together and apparently haven't gotten bored with being The Rolling Stones. At their age, a long concert tour has to be brutal.
