Jimi Hendrix, “Johnny B Goode”

1970! I still think Jimi Hendrix was the greatest guitarist that ever lived. Yeah, I know. Eric Clapton. Sit down, Eric. Take a seat. Jimi’s on stage now.

This is live at the Berkeley Community Theater, 1970! Listen to how he rips the living shreds out of this old Chuck Berry Song. He turns into into full blown blow out your speakers rock and roll. Acid rock! That’s some real rock and roll, baby! He’s not fucking around here at all. This is the real thing!

Not sure if this is on any album, but “Johnny B. Goode” was never recorded on a studio album. Instead, several versions  can be found on posthumously released live albums.

“Johnny B. Goode” was originally written by Chuck Berry in 1957.
