  • To not have Frank Marino listed is a crime

  • Randy Hansen is the most realistic Hendrix cover player I have heard
    Vince Hawkins channels Hendrix a lot
    Josh Smith at least on Over My Head

  • #1 is Randy Hansen as he was impersonatin Jimi since his death.
    While different from Hendrix, Robin Trower has to be one of the trippiest guitar players out there.
    Phillip Sayce was also produced by Eddie Kramer and I first heard about him from Eddie himself. Phillip is a monster but more of a Stevie Ray on steroids than a Hendrix but I still get it.
    In the same vein as Phillip is Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

    Thank you for the tip on Michael Williams , I will check him out now.

  • I concur with Ryan regarding Frank Marino, also check out Martin J Andersen who plays with blindstone and has some solo stuff, from the Netherlands I believe. Sky High is another overseas band who plays a lot of Hendrix tunes.

  • Randy Hansen out of Washington State will knock you socks off I’d love to see him play and yes Philip Sayce is one of the best walking the planet and of course Raw Dawg Eric Gales out of Memphis look up his battle of the bands in Memphis when he was just 18 doing a Hendrix cover I’m getting goose bumps just thinking about it …

    • I’ve seen Eric Gales twice recently, not very impressed.

  • Philip Sayce plays a nasty “while my guitar gently weeps” on The Jeff Healey Band album called Live at Montreux.

    • Saw Phil with Jeff Healey a few times and he’s very good however Jeff Healey without Phil in the early 90s was probably the nearest anyone will come to playing with the feel Hendrix had. Jeff’s versions of While My Guitar Gently Weeps and All Along the Watchtower (plus much of his own stuff) was breathtaking and the audience was stood open mouthed just like you see in some of Hendrix’s film footage.

  • I have to disagree about Randy Travis, he misses the feel that even SRV was missing. Best Hendrix impersonator for getting the feel right was/is Anthony Aquarius Johnson. Best guitarist since Hendrix has to have been Jeff Healey (my greatest life experience ever). As for who is the best guitarist at the moment, Albert Cummings by a country mile.
