What song did Jimi Hendrix play bass on?

According to what i read/heard, Hendrix played Noel Redding,s Fender Precision bass guitar on "All Along The Watchtower. Apparently, this occurred because Redding had grew tired of Hendrix,s perfectionism in the recording studio, & that Hendrix would frequently have a group of friends/hangers-on in the recording studio with him when he recorded, which resulted in little or no work being done. Therefore, Noel Redding allegedly walked out of the studio & went drinking, while Jimi Hendrix recorded "ALL Along The Watchtower".

Who is better Clapton or Hendrix?

CLAPTON WOULD TELL YOU HENDRIX That answer is as correct as you will see; good insight. Hendrix probably dug Clapton too. Clapton was in awe over the smooth playing legend, and planned on presenting him with a Stratocaster I think in England. Unfortunately, he never got the chance; that was when Hendrix died. Also, it depends on what you like. If you like someone who plays more eccentrically, watch Hendrix. He had no quams against smashing his guitar or setting it ablaze on stage. Clapton AND Hendrix. Two of the most powerfull and prolific guitarist' ever to take command of a stage. One of Jimi's most memorable solos in ' All along the Watchtower' is a guitar players dream to Clapton's subtle interlude in 'While my guitar gently weeps' will forever be engraved in the minds of guitarist's everywhere for years to come.
