The Best Cover of All Along The Watchtower

Recommended Posts

Ouch.. Jimi hasn't aged that well, has he. He looked much better in the 60s... 

On the other hand, Jimi's take on AATW from back then really and truly IS the ultimate version of the song. Even Bob thinks so (and he doesn't even think in terms of ultimate versions, so...I'm not sure what that tells you.) Bob changed his way of playing it after hearing what Jimi did to it.

No doubt Satriani (and Living Colour) would agree with you. JS dedicated himself to guitar playing on the day Hendrix died. I've never seen a live version that nailed the solo parts and extended it as this one! Too bad the spotlight guy (or gal) was a bit off when Satriani was pointing at Vernon Reid to take a solo. 

cheers
