I think this is the first time ever I'll have to agree with screw_ball...
Jimi Hendrix was much more talented than Lenny Kravitz will/has ever be/been. Hendrix creativity, overall skill on the guitar, and emotional stimulus in his live performance cant even be compared to someone like Lenny Kravitz. Just because they look alike and play similar styles of music doesn't mean they're the same person. That's like comparing Michael Jordan to some college player who resembles MJ's style/skill.
Okay, this is for those of you who can't read. The whole point of this thread was not to say that Kravitz might be equal to Hendrix. We know that Hendrix is way better than Kravitz. The question was if you had to pick someone to be a modern day Hendrix would Kravitz be the one. This is not saying that they are the same person or even remotely equal in talent. Some people were talking about it, and rockmaiden wanted to find out the opinion of others on this site. No one is trying to put Kravitz up there with Hendrix.
No, it's not, so if you don't have anything to contribute, don't bother posting. Rockmaiden heard people talking about the topic and wanted to see what you guys thought. I don't know why she bothered, but there you have it.
alright.. i don't give a shit what comparison this thread was "intended" to make about the two, because first of all, you don't make a thread asking opinions of people and expect a specific response.. especially about something like this! when you make a comparison to someone say, as being a modern-day so-and-so, you are expecting SIMILAR traits to be compared, no?? plus, whether they are outraged opinions or humble opinions, they are opinions none-the-less... which is what you are asking for... no??
besides the fact that they are both black, there is no comparison. and don't anyone tell me they're both musicians, because Hendrix was the only real musician of the two! kravitz is a preppy, primped, fuckin model. hendrix is a beautiful fuckin
there's my comparison.
