@Satch.... What are you talking....At his time in the 60s, he was definitely the fastest guitarist. If Vai or Satch were present then, they wouldn;t have even dared to get on stage with Jimi. Right from equipments to recording gear everything was so low-fi and Jimi could manage to get all those with such limitations. Whatever be it... You are not going anywhere if you dont respect great guitarists. Just shows your immaturity and ignorance and also you will lack great lessons from these great players. Even skillfully Jimi Hendrix is an absolutely superior player. People like Satch, Hendrix, Malmsteen, Vai, etc... all worship Hendrix. Each of these players give great respect to Hendrix's playing skills. Do you think you are way ahead of these guys calling Hendrix crap....
I am sure, you are not going to get convinced but remember it takes a great deal to become what each one of those have achieved. Like it or not it's not simple and not everyone could do it. A few world class really stand apart. Check out Slash and check out Buckethead. Just by the tone and playing maturity, you know each of these deserved what they were and what they are.. Bottomline is if you are true music lover, first learn to respect musicians. Once you respect, you will have a whole new perception about music. So GROW UP.
