Guitarist for his own band as well as Deep Purple, James Gang, Energy, Zephyr. Also guest guitarist for Billy Cobham, Alphonse Mouzon, Moxy, Dr. John and Rainbow Canyon. Played every genre equally well. Excellent lyricist and singer. Master of the EchoPlex! His anthem, Post Toastee, was an anti drug song. Too bad he died of an drug overdose.

Al Jolson Report Abuse
23 # 1 hits, 87 Top 40 hits, Star of Broadway, radio and the big screen. Acknowledged by all his contemporaries as "The World's Greatest Entertainer." The most electric performer on stage in history.

His music was ahead of its time and that's why he is so low on the list. Bach is equal to Hendrix. Then its Beetoven,Beatles,Bowie,Tchakovsky,Miles Davis,Can,Zappa, and Bob Marley and the wailers.
