Hi Nick - I don't claim to be an expert on this subject, but - When I viewed MartinS's Dylan documentary last year, I saw/heard Dylan on stage, and I think that the venue was MSG. There was very audible booing from the audience, and the band reacted to it. The band was not booed off the stage that I could see, but I'll bet they didn't come out for a long encore! Otherwise, your points about Hendrix's guitar expertise and style are consistent with my opinion (for whatever that's worth), for I've have never been a big fan of Jimie's style in general or burning a perfectly good guitar. He had some great songs to his credit, and I like to think that he would have matured into a great artist over time. Similar to SRV, Jimi died way too soon. So much music; so little time...
