Great video
Its interesting B.B King says he never spoke to Hendrix after meeting him before he was famous. I have a 1968 bootleg recording of Jimi Hendrix, B.B King, Paul Butterfield, Al Kooper and Mitch Mitchell. Both Jimi and B.B are recorded talking in between songs and its clear who they are not to mention B.B King introduces all the musicians after a few songs.Very interesting jam to say the least!

I don't understand why BB would say: 'Why didn't you change the Strings'? Jimi didn't play a right handed guitar upside down, he did change the Strings... He played a right handed guitar strung up for a Lefty... The strings were reversed... Maybe he met Eric Gales... ???

Hendrix learned on a right handed guitar and at first he did play it upside down left handed. He did eventually start reversing the strings, but he could play it either way.

Yes, I was lucky enough to be a young lad and my Dad took me down to Olympic Studios in Barnes. Met Jimi there and had a short but nice chat with him and he was such a nice guy. Shame later on my Dad who was also friends with Charlie Watkins (WEM) saw him with Jimi but I never got there.

BB King’s voice is iconic
Richard Rejmer (2 months ago)
BB said "I asked him, why didn't he change the strings?" Either BB's memory is failing in this clip, or he was drinking more back then than he will admit. . . But Jimi DID change the strings. . He held the guitar left-handed, but he didn't leave the strings right handed (with the light strings on top - for a left-hand player). . Jimi swapped the strings around so it was strung to the conventional arrangement, with the heavy strings on the top. . . same as right-hand players have. .
Procras10eighter 1992 (13 days ago)
No, he is correct. At times, Hendrix DID simply flip the guitar over and play it with the strings in reverse order. King's recollection is more likely to be correct since his meeting takes place when Hendrix was a backing guitarist and he didn't have as many guitars or someone to set them up as he did later on in his career.

My friend worked with King in a studio once. The first time B B sang through they all scrambled for their volume control knobs to turn down. Such a strong powerful voice.

I had the opportunity to party with Buddy Guy and Junior Wells in the 70's. They played in my city 2 or 3 times a year and would come over to my house. Same with The James Cotton Band, but we would jam,. How cool is that?

Just priceless the gr8ts talking about the greatest so glad to have grown up in the sixties and in motown and lived his music just magical. Was around guitars who thought they could copy his style that was the challenge in those days they would play Hendrix, Dennis Coffey, and the Motown gr8t musicians The Funk Bros. Those were gr8t times I thought it would b like that always n forever WOW what a surprise.

Jimi got to meet his heroes. That in itself is beautiful and it probably would've been his biggest goal in life. To meet and gain the respect of his masters.

I always thought Buddy carried on the Jimi Hendrix torch for blues, the way he approaches it. I imagine if Jimi were still around, he'd be sounding a lot like Buddy Guy.

I remember thinking I had a handle on the blues until I saw B.B. play live in 1997. I realized I was completely out of my depth, the tone and soul he had coming from Lucille and a single Combo amp mic'd into the house P.A. was staggering. B.B. was pure genius - unmatched.

The last concertvi attended was a Fillmore, June 1969. BB King, Buddy Miles and Ten Years After, as I recall.
Let me tell you the secret to BB's long life ...Popeye's Chicken. The man must have stopped by every Popeye's in the US.

Amazing two greats talking about meeting the master at the guitar. Jimi was a nice guy, humble, was NOT a drug addict. Terrible such a waste from such a tragic accident, or was it? Or was he murdered? It wasn't a drug overdose. When i was growing up in the 80s most people thought he died of a heroin overdose, on the contrary Jimi didn't use heroin!

Jimmy and bb will play at the opening of the gates for you.
JACMUSTANGCAT (1 year ago)
Both BB and Buddy liked him and said he was a nice guy. I keep reading and hearing that Hendrix was actually a very quiet and respectful man. He is my favorite. I also have a strong love for SRV and Trower. There are many many talented guitar pickers.

What does BY mean "he never changed his strings?". Didn't jimi usually flip a right handed strat and re string it left handed?

Small world back then anyone who was someone knew everyone ...at one time or another I remember back in late 60's groovin to Hendrix man I remember exactly where I was when I heard he had dies ,,,shit was I ever bummed out ....I remember the day John F.

Both very nice men. Oh, BB, why did you let your weight get away from you and develop diabetes? That is what happened to Ella. Her circulation got so bad, she could no longer perform, had both legs amputated, and then died. Be careful of one’s weight.
