Comment:

Nobody can ever out-Jimi Jimi, so those who dare to take on one of his cuts better make their cover an [i]experience[/i]. At age 80 — yes, you read that right — John Lee Hooker strips "Red House" of its psychedelic plumage and wrings every last scrap of sweat-drenched soul from its blues-burdened heart. What Stevie Ray Vaughan clips out of "Little Wing" — the vocals — leaves him space enough for a shotgun-shack marathon of jaw-dropping jamification, nearly [i]tripling[/i] the song's length in the process. Even though Jimi died just days before his scheduled collaboration with the Gil Evans Orchestra, Miles Davis' former arranger soldiered on, scorching the studio with a [i]habañero[/i]-hot reimagining of "Crosstown Traffic," its horns blaring at Mach 2 down the Jazz Fusion Expressway. And as long as we're in the who'da-thunk-it zone, check out Styx's 'roid-raging, de-wimpifying tear through "Manic Depression." But that's not all — from Seal to Sting, from Patti Smith to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, your favorite artists discovered that Jimi's pen was every bit as mighty as his guitar.
