This sounds nothing like Hendrix. Pretty lame for name sake but an okay lead if you're into 80's hair bands. I'm good. Hendrix live in Sweden leave it alone!

One of the most remarkable solos ever. It's by far my favorite Malmsteen solo. It's much more musical and restrained but never lacking in fire and passion. It's just brilliant.

Jason Shults (7 months ago)
Man....Jimi could hear the groove in everything. He turned that groove into music. Listen to Jimi play this tune live. It isn't about the notes, or the tone. It's about the groove, and these guys don't have it. Yeah, this isn't a bad cover, but it isn't Jimi's groove. Not even close. Yngwie has a bunch of critics. Those people either don't know shit about classically trained guitarists, or they clash with his style. Words like "soulless" are used by simpletons who don't know how to use the language so they resort to slang that is meaningless.

How to fuck the soul right out of a classic song. All these cunts are interested in is their fucking hairdoos, stupid fucking clothes and shoes, and posing like gay pandas. Ive never laughed so much, and that fucking Yngwie with his pathetic little poof kicks. If I'd have been on that stage I'd have shown him what a proper kick up the bollocks feels like...haha

Field Hippy (3 years ago)
+misterbracks I took your point to be more the poser point than the "doing a cover" slant. Aint nothing wrong w/ a cover. Yngwie writes alot of his own shit too. 
misterbracks (3 years ago)
+Field Hippy...... course he was a fucking poser, but you 're missing the point...... he also wrote the fucking song ...!!!
Field Hippy (3 years ago)
+misterbracks Dude, do you not realize Jimi was at times a poser? He tried hard to be sexy onstage. Hell, he screwed the guitar onstage in many a gig. If he would've live longer, do you think people would still be eating it up/falling for it if he were doing those moves in his 50's plus, you know air screwing the guitar? He got away w/ things in a young r'r world that people would make fun of now, imo. esp. if he were to do some of that stuff as an old man.

Gary Moore (1 year ago)
yeah i agree, its 2017 now, and what i hear here from 89 still knocks the spots off of anything anyone plays today. I fail to see the next hero doing what Jimi did, there have been a bunch of brilliant creative magicians like Steve Vai and Joe Satriani to name just 2, but the shift jimi created and the influence he has had makes him a legendary godlike figure.
Benzel (2 years ago)
Agree, this and Vaughan's Voodoo Child interpretation are very well put together. But then you go to watch Hendrix play these at Woodstock and you just realize how sovereign he was still.

UcanThnkItuCanDoit (4 years ago)
For real though this is pretty damn good. If he would chill with the sweep picking and ridiculous shredding it would actually sound quite a bit like Hendrix. The beauty in this song, at least when Hendrix did it, was in it's simplicity. Also, the vocals are also pretty damn good. Impressive.
Glenn Hecker (10 months ago)
epic103 I think so, too. I think Hendrix would have enjoyed his unique sound and style, and probably would have invited him to jam.
Maureen Wagg (11 months ago)
UcanThnkItuCanDoit You wish you could shred like this. If you don't like Yngwie feel free to go somewhere I don't have to see you ridiculous comment. This is my music and I love it.
epic103 (4 years ago)
+hazor777 That's your opinion... but Yngwie's got a great performers style and he's pretty smooth and cool also. 
hazor777 (4 years ago)
I agree - Yngwie is more appealing & sounds better when he leaves more space and doesn't try to fill every fucking minute milisecond of a beat w/1K notes! But Hendrix had waaaaaaay more performer's STYLE than Yngwie will ever have. Hendrix was just smooth and cool as hell , live......
MrDeepFriedOnion (4 years ago)
+Will Scott Jimi played played piano and harpsichord to an extent, as well as bass on on alot of the Electric Ladyland songs. Obviously not Yngwie level, but that's more because of his short life.

Michael Brown (5 years ago)
Yeah, he's a great player... (Not always my favorite) This version the singer makes it cheesy, but it is the 80's... lol What bothers me is the fact that Yngwie says he wasn't inspired by Hendrix... THEN WHY DO YOU PLAY SO MANY OF HIS SONGS
#Hesch tag (6 months ago)
He even said during an interview that he wouldn't be sitting there if it wasn't for Hendrix. Besides he always used to ( dunno if he still does that) thank Jimi on his albums. He just didn't want to be a blues-based player and ventured into classical music. He is still a lot more blues than Steve Vai.
2COOLGHOULS (4 years ago)
+Louis Caldwell  Yngwie cites Hendrix all the time as inspiration
Louis Caldwell (5 years ago)
+François Le Coadou I have my facts straight and heard from his own mouth, Hendrix is not really a musician. He is a liar and not nearly as good as HE thinks he is.
François Le Coadou (5 years ago)
Yngwie actually says Hendrix is one of his biggest inspiration, get your facts straight...
Sardath13 (5 years ago)
That is why rock is pretty much dead nowadays. No one reinvents or innovates, they just copy flashy playing for attention/fame. Tom Morello and John Frusciante are the only ones who I can think of that brought guitar to a new level after the years 2000.
epic103 (5 years ago)
You're ridiculous! Hendrix was great but he's nowhere near Yngwie Malmsteen. The stuff Yngwie plays is on another level.
thinlizzy44 (5 years ago)
There isn't anyone even on the same god dam planet that Hendrix was on, not even close. Not Santana, not Paige, not Richards -nobody. Listen to The Band of Gypsys live stuff, specifically Machine Gun and the Woodstock live stuff, particularly the Purple Haze>Villanova Junction Jam. And I mean really listen to it. Then let us know what you think. I'd rank about a thousand guitar players better than this Ingwe character. Hendrix would have plenty to say about it but proud? Lol..
thinlizzy44 (5 years ago)
Agree 100%. I actually use to think the same thing about Alvin Lee. Something happened in 1980 though; rock music, guitar playing in particular, took a turn for the worst and it never came back. Listen to Hendrix do Voodoo Child, or some live shit like the BOGs Machine Gun. Even the Woodstock stuff....there are a lot of notes there but they all mean something. Jimi had H-bombs n shit going off man! Ingwe's notes are just flying aimlessly into space all over. And they don't mean a dam thing.
Sardath13 (5 years ago)
You don't know how right you are. This is the problem with many guitar "icons/gods". Too much flash, way too less feel. For fucks sake people, the guitar is not a speed contest, or a challenge to see how many notes you can throw in, it's a way of expressing yourself through music. Yngwie truly is a guitarist, but Hendrix is an artist above all.
BATISTA BUSA (5 years ago)
joe lynn turner on fkn vocals hes fkn awesome
epic103 (5 years ago)
With that said... Yngwie does sing and play guitar at the same time. Yngwie sang Voodoo Child on the G3 tour, and he sang Red House at the Budokan in Japan, and he also sings on three songs on his latest album "Spellbound."
Ari Pekkala (5 years ago)
lars is good guitar player :)
TheGallantGentry (5 years ago)
Which is obviously the song we are currently talking about... -_-
TheGallantGentry (5 years ago)
AGAIN, my comment refers to the fact that Hendrix sang the song himself and played the guitar on this song. In this performance, one person is singing and another is playing guitar. If you are lacking in an ability to count, I'll help you out. Jimi is one person. In this performance, the vocalist and guitar player make up two people. That's one more person than Jimi. I wasn't referencing anyone else in the band. The are irrelevant to the argument, much like yourself.
TheGallantGentry (5 years ago)
I was alluding to fact that Jimi SANG and played guitar on the song. The two people I was referring was the vocalist and Yngwie, "you fuckin dummy." By the way, thanks for taking time out what I assume to be a busy schedule of sifting through two year old youtube comments to remind us all of the fact that you are an idiot. It must feel good going out of your way to blow your horn just to get your dick knocked in the dirt.

Really? I thought Yngwie did a really good job here. I thought he did a good job creating a Hendrix vibe on this track. Plus... his vibrato is just sick!
Latino Nationalist (5 years ago)
Yngwie is awesome, but in my opinionHendrix performs this song so much better
epic103 (5 years ago)
I'm pretty sure the Vivian Campell comment was meant as a joke. Because to put Yngwie Malmsteen and Vivian Cambell in the same sentence is ridiculous. I've been following YJM's career for about 26 years and I never heard that before. With regard to Blackmore... yes he incorporated some classical music into his playing but he was still mainly blues based with some classical mixed in, whereas YJM is the opposite, he is more classical phrases with some blues mixed in. YJM is more Baroque :)
