    Only Jimi never said any such thing. This, according to Gibbons was said on the Tonight Show, which at the time made for good fodder since nobody would remember such a quote. Only problem is, the audio from the Tonight Show exsists and Jimi said no such thing.

    Gibbons= bs artist

    Not on Cavett either. On Cavett, Dick mentions to Jimi that he's the best around, and Jimi replies he's the best in this (his) chair

    If you watch the show every week, you saw Eddie answer the question as to WHY there are no new bands on the show. The network is VH1 Classic, it plays artists who USED to be played on MTV in the 80's & 90's. That's it's demographic. It is a network decision to not have newer bands on the show. Altho they DO plug & feature newer bands that have older members... like Black Country Communion (Glenn Hughes) and Chickenfoot (the whole band), and Duff Macagan's Loaded.

    I just tried to watch it online and had to put up with like 5 commercials about toothpaste and tampons between segments. VH1 can kiss my ass..

    Wow... can't sit thru commercials? Picky, aren't we? You must not watch much tv. Try recording it & FF thru the commercials.

    Maybe the music they discuss just isn't your thing.

    My beef with the show is that they never talk about an artist gear. No show on earth has been made yet that will dissect a players rig. I still wish for longer more detail gear testing, but then it is easier to test em myself.

    Another beef is the show is too short! More road stories would be fun too.

    Would Jimi have sold out in some way...

    or more like it would he have run off with Myles and just gone fusion and made more essorteric records...
    When asked what musician he most would have liked to play with, Miles said he was blown away by Machine Gun and the two were supposed to get together to jam soon but Jimi died.

    FWIW the term "Heavy Metal" was first used by a reporter describing a Jimi concert. "Sounded like heavy metal falling from the sky".

    Those are my 2 useless tidbits of information. I think you're right Teddy -Jimi would have gone the fusion route. However, when SRV tried to play jazz, it basically sucked. He couldn't swing and didn't understand the harmonies. Who's to say if Jimi would have pulled it off? If you think about the 70's era of jazz with fusion and free jazz, anything could have happened. Imagine Coltrane trading licks with Jimi! Now that's acid trip-a-licious! Not that Miles is any slouch. He just didn't have that Trane ferocity. But I digress, never seen the show!
