Jimi Hendrix is definitely more famous than Van Morrison. Half the world hasn't even heard of Van Morrison, but EVERYBODY has heard of Hendrix.
All 3 are extremely famous in the world of rock n' roll, but Bob Dylan was the only one of them who had a long career; also, he sold more albums than Jimi Hendrix or Jim Morrison combined, so Dylan is generally the most famous of the three (competing with Hendrix).
yes because eric was here first and jimi is just a show of
jimi Hendrix. Hes a legend
Jimi Hendrix is probably slightly more widely known than Iron Maiden; even though Iron Maiden had a longer career, Hendrix changed guitar playing forever. That pretty much explains it.
Today, definitely Adele
I believe that Stevie Wonder has sold more records than Jimi Hendrix. While both men are extremely talented and innovative, I think more people can relate to Stevie's music than Jimi's.
By using guitar sound effects that Hendrix used like the Wah pedal, Octavio, Fuzz Face, and more.
worldwide, probably homer simpson
The Righteous Brothers tribute Rock and Roll Heaven mentions the first names of Jimi Hendrix and all of these except who?
The question is vague, but we start the naming with: Jimi Hendrix Janis Joplin Otis Redding Jim Morrison - Doors Jim Croce Bobby Darin left out Buddy Holly Mamma Cass Elliot - The Mammas and the Pappas The Big Bopper Richie Valens Brian Jones - Rolling Stones founder Bound to be many more, but this starts the ball rolling
multiple artists such as BB King and Prince and many more blues and rock artists
Jimi Hendrix has more of a fan following (people who actively purchase and listen to his music), where the Incredible Hulk has more of a household name (if you are talking about him, people will generally know what you mean without having read the Comic Book series or watched the movies). So I would say both are about equally as famous.
his manager thought it was more.......different. it was his stage name but people/friends called him that too.
He composed 46 tracks while he was alive, but there may be more that haven't been sold.

Michael Jackson was the only entertainer in history who had truly global iconic fame.
The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Jackson 5, The Supremes, Otis Redding, The Monkees, Jimi Hendrix, among probably a whole lot more
anderson shelters were more popular
Both very popular, but Bruce Springsteen has been consistently more popular than Van Morrison in general. Both great musicians, though!
Although Clapton has received more honours, Hendrix is considered to be the greatest-ever guitarist in the genre of rock, so this puts them at a very close standoff. In the end, it comes down to personal preference
More than you even know. Prince's animalistic guitar screams all pay homage to Jimi Hendrix. Even when Prince is playing the guitar he copies Hendrix's stage presence. By this I mean, Hendrix would play a chord then sweep his left hand in the air and Prince does the same thing except sweep his right hand in the air. Prince also pretends to have sex with his guitar on stage, an act Hendrix made famous during… Read More
The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Jerry Garcia and The Greatful Dead, Timothy Leary, prob more but this is all i know right now
Depends on what style of guitar you like. No doubt as a shredder, Yngwie was far more technically proficient and revolved his style around the diminished E scale, however, Jimi had more interesting songs and had that soul aspect that technical playing can't always bring.
Purple Haze, All Along the Watchtower, Hey Joe, Star Spangled Banner, Castles Made of Sand, and many more
stratocaster (jimi Hendrix made famous) telecaster jaguar percision bass theres much more but those are off the top of my head
Jimi Hendrix had more then one top forty hits. perhaps not in the US, but in the UK. but your probably referring to purple haze.
The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Grateful Dead, Cream, Buffalo Springfield, Booker T. and the MGs, more......
I was told about this guy (that is apparently Jimi Hendrix's nephew -a musician) by one of my radio show hosts and she is actually trying to get him on the show for an interview this Sunday night (10 pm CST) so if he is for real we will be finding out! If he is on this week's show I will let you know more!
The Rolling Stones
Of course he was! Jimi more so nowadays than then is a Corporation! You need many people to run a corporation!

He didn't invent the genre but he did define the sound and made it little louder so he invented the heavy modern sound. See the related link for more information.
In the 1960's, they had classical rock and more. Some bands included The Beatles, The Monkees, Jimi Hendrix and The Mamas and the Papas. If you search for them on youtube you'll find a lot :) hope this helped
Yes he did. From before he was famous. A little internet researcharooney would reveal this. He also had a son from later on. Why neither of these are the owners of his estate is a sick mystery that only God knows. They sure as hell should be. Th eperson who is in control now, Janie Hendrix, is not even related to him. She is a nasty peice of scum. His heirs should have what's theirs… Read More

The only two similarities are that both songs are by the "Jimi Hendrix Experience" and are both off the "Electric Ladyland" album. "Voodoo Chile" goes for about 15 minutes and is very laid back and bluesy. "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" has completely different lyrics, has a much more hard rock feel to it and features Steve Winwood on organ and goes for about 5 minutes. The book "Jimi Hendrix - Electric Gypsy" gives lengthy explanations… Read More

Well a lot of people will tell ya a lot of things! Especially about songs & meanings! "The Wind Cries Mary" was influenced by at least 2 people that I know! Jimi Hendrix played and studied many musicians from the known to thee unknown! One being a friend/fellow musician/someone Jimi looked up to and admired for many reasons was Mr. Curtis Mayfield! The 2nd & the best all around answer though is that it was… Read More
Jimi Hendrix had at least 2 children. He had a daughter who was born in 1966 called Tamika Laurence James. He also had a son called James Daniel Sundqvist who was born in 1969. Jimi Hendrix is alledged to have a daughter but it was never proven. NEW COMMENTOR: My name is Ryan & added what I know to this answer previously & what I added I must assume was deleted by someone else that… Read More
When is the best age to start playing a electric guitarI'm 17am i to old to be good as Jimmy Page or Jimi Hendrix?
You're never too old. The trick to being good is very simple and very difficult: Practice. A lot. A lot more than you think. Jimi would practice until he fell asleep. Good teachers are helpful too. Very helpfull.
Hendrix was playing a new tune off-stage and one of his associates recommended that he put words to it. He added the words, based on a dream he had had, of walking on the bottom of the ocean. Recorded in 1967, a number of people have thought that the song was about drug use, particularly LSD. But there is evidence to support that the song was actually more spiritual in nature.

Bob Dylan is much more popular than Van Morrison. Van Morrison is known for a few songs, but he is mostly known for "Brown Eyed Girl". Dylan on the other hand is known for numerous classics such as "It Ain't Me Babe", "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright", "Like a Rolling Stone", "Mr. Tambourine Man", "Highway 61 Revisited", "Desolation Row", "Hurricane", "Knocking on Heaven's Door"... the list goes on and on. Not saying that Van Morrison… Read More
