Who is the real "King" of Rock'n'Roll?

I know every body says Elvis is, and maybe he was King for his time period. However, the man who is the embodiment of Rock'n'Roll, is still emulated today and yet unsurpassed in creativity, ingenuity and ability is none other than Jimi Hendrix! So what do you think?!?!

This is funny, I have been doing a lot of reading about Woodstock. Jimmy was the biggest name on the ticket. They had to offer him a lot of money to show up and play, almost twice as much as the other big names. But, they said he was playing twice so that is why the bigger fee. It was a political game from the promoters. I can't remember, were you there? I don't remember seeing you there. I don't remember being there either. I heard Elvis was there, ha ha.

I was thinking of Robert Plank, or Mick Jagger, or Keith Richards along with Jimmy. It was a good question.

The extraordinary performances, recording, and lyrics of James Marshall Hendrix have made him impossible to forget. Jimi, the rock music guitarist made a legendary mark not only in the history of rock 'n' roll but also on the pop culture as a whole. Jimi has my vote.
