Did you know that Jimi Hendrix’s iconic song “Voodoo Child” was recently declared the greatest guitar riff of all time? Here in The Bottom, we are partial to Hendrix’s acoustic blues, but no one can dispute his rock god status. Johnny B. Goode and Living Colour also made the list, and Eddie Van Halen from Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” – but no Prince, no TTD? That ain’t right.
With guitar riffs on my mind, I just completed the “Black Rock Audience Survey” from Rob Fields, black rock evangelist (and friend of TBoH). But he’s still in need of a few responses and sends along this message:
“If you like artists such as Lenny Kravitz, Living Colour, Bad Brains, Fishbone, TV On The Radio, Gnarls Barkley, or Santigold, to name a few, then please take 5 minutes to complete this survey. Free music awaits all who complete it. “
Even if you’re curious about black rock music, take the survey and get the free music to see what you’ve been missing! And please share, retweet, forward the survey link to friends. It would be a big help. (Photo credit for the adorable picture of baby Jimi from Seattlepi.com.)
