  1. which one is the more....influential black dude? i vote for jimi, hands down. first of all, bob marleys music sucks. i hate it. sounds awful. jimi mde....art.


  2. Jimi!! Amazing guitarist and so influential in guitarists
  3. There's no neither option, so I guess I'll go with Jimi.
  4. influential to what?

    overall i'd say bob marley. i'd say bob marley did a lot more to promote peace than hendrix. hendrix was too busy touring to really do anything and he only had 3 years.

    if we're talking strictly music then hendrix hands down.

  5. noob burst your bubble. and marley picks up his pace
  6. hendrix without a doubt. recently voted by rolling stone as the greatest guitarist of all time. damn... to play like he did while being an above average singer at the same time? unreal
  7. I remember when I was a little kid and I thought the lyrics to bob marleys jammin was "pajamas pajamas, and I hope you like pajamas too". So i choose him
  8. I think the people that say Hendrix did a lot for music/guitar are overplaying what he actually did... I don't think he was that influential actually. He was a bit but not like some people say anyway. Bob Marley sorta contributed to some subcultures and shit, and I guess that's worth considering.

    But in my opinion both of them made bad music... So what do I know? I see people with Bob Marley shirts all the time and think "man I bet they don't actually listen to that"

  9. lol i think the same thing to. but its mostly stoners who are going to wear those shirts and if u smoke weed theres a good chance your a fan of bob marley
  10. Does anyone here have a favourite song by each?

  11. wtf no way

  13. seriously dude? what world are u from? how much Hendrix have u actually listened to? and Bob Marley is the reason anyone knows about reggae....both these guys are ridiculously influential idk how u can compare them.
  14. Fuck you OP. I am really stuck on this one....
  15. Good job at finding the coolest picture you can of Jimi, and then finding the shittiest picture of Bob Marley.
    First of all, they're two different types of music, and personally Bob Marley is what I prefer.
    And you can't say Jimi Hendrix is more influential. There's kids who know nothing about Bob Marley rocking his t-shirts and rocking rasta colors just because they smoke weed, but the sad part is the majority don't even listen to his music, or smoke weed.
    But yeah, Marley definitely wins the most influential over Hendrix, can't argue with it.

    Jimi is bauss
  17. Jimi Hendrix used tones and recording techniques that were extremely innovative for the time. He also change the way lead guitar was looked at with his use of distortion and feedback. Look at machine gun if you want a example this song is grate. He was also a extreamly versatile rhythm player.
  18. Hendrix all the way
  19. Hendrix is great and so is bob marley, but bob marley comes off anti white in my opinion...
