Stellar Covers – JAKE BUGG goes JIMI HENDRIX…


Not many artists covered guitar legend JIMI HENDRIX just because the man’s virtuosity
is matchless and frightens musicians to interpret one of his powered exploits. Except
for young British world troubadour JAKE BUGG. The quiet and highly talented songsmith isn’t afraid of playing songs of giants. He did Neil Young, Donovan and Johnny Cash amongst others with flare, respect and his own touch. He covers songwriters just because he loves their timeless classics. He don’t care about the purists who condemn his audacity and guts and who think that icons should only be admired and nothing more. I must admit myself that covering Hendrix was maybe a bridge to far. I thought wrong. His live rendition, a shortened version, of VOODOO CHILE is quite special. Get electrified…

    Well I greatly liked that. I saw Hendrix perform three times and Jake hasn’t got the showmanship or that raw power of Hendrix but it was a great effort and nice to hear. I saw Jake perform a year ago and was really impressed. The kid has talent and respects good music. He writes great songs and is not going to be a flash in the pan. We’ll see a lot of him in the future.
