    I noticed the SRV profile pic.  I love them both, but Hendrix is my favorite.  I wish they both would have lived longer.

    I would say Hendrix. He created something new that had never been done before. SRV was great but followed in Hendrix footsteps. Jimi was an inovater. An original. So, on the basis of originality I give Jimi the nod.

    Wow, that's a tough one. I love both of these guys work. Stevie was more focused on mechanics but could improvise very well. Both guys could sing well, but Hendrix had deep genius that may have evolved even more had he not died prematurely. Of course the same might be said of SRV...

    I love Hendrix, he had a relationship with feedback like no other in such live recordings such as Band of Gypsies 'Machine gun'  He makes his guitar/amp sound like a warzone. This is also one of the few songs I have heard that both lyrics and music are stating the same point. Though I appreciate SRV I only listen t his Jimi covers. (Which he excels at).
