Furthermore - The Hendrix Quote

Postby messinwiththekid » 22 Jul 2010, 04:56

The quote attributed to Jimi Hendrix seems to be getting alot of traction, but I have yet to see the source directly identified. If anyone knows, please share it. Not that Rory needs any validation. To me, his legacy is that he was always content to let his playing speak for itself. BTW, nice job on this forum for Rory fans! I'll be back.

Hi Folks!

I'm sorry if this sounds negative, it is certainly not meant to be. We all know that Rory doesn't need vindication from anyone.

Anyway, the plain fact of the matter is that the source of the Hendrix qoute has never been identified. Because it never existed. It is a part of folklore, and has taken the internet by storm.

As people who know me will know, I've paid tribute to Rory since 1993 or thereabouts (yes, I had the gall to have a band called Blueprint who played Rory tunes when the man was alive!)

But it is only in the past 2 years or so that I've heard this qoute repeated. Put simply, Rory, although he was always a legend to us, has become a bigger legend in death.

Finally, have a read of this. It contextualises how the legend came about. Of course, it will never explain how Rory was the greatest of them all, but we knew that anyway!

Hi Dave, thanks for posting the link to Snopes.com, it's fascinating reading. I've often looked up various urban legends on snopes, but never realized there was a version of the Hendrix quote story there too. This forum is even more interesting and fun than Snopes...welcome!
