Jimi Hendrix Named Rolling Stone's Greatest Guitarist Of ALL TIME!!!

Filed under: Music MinuteKeith Richards

jimi hendrix greatest guitarist of all time

Very well deserved!

Rolling Stone has released a new list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, and the legendary Jimi Hendrix landed the #1 spot on the list!

Here's what Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello had to say about it:

"His playing was effortless. There's not one minute of his recorded career that feels like he's working hard at it — it feels like it's all flowing through him."

We totally agree, and we're also feeling pret-ty good about the runners up, which include Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, and Jeff Beck!

Who do U think is the greatest guitarist of all time???

Eric Clapton's Daughter Hires Him As Her Wedding Singer

Filed under: Music MinuteWedding Waltz

What a great wedding present!

Eric Clapton not only walked his daughter Ruth down the aisle at her wedding in St. Mary Magdalen Church in Ripley, England, but he was also hired to perform as her wedding singer at her reception.

A guest at the wedding says Eric performed for about an hour at the ceremony this past Saturday and was even joined by his daughter for a duet, which they performed in front of 150 of her guests.

The guest added:

Ruth sang Use Somebody, by the Kings of Leon, as her special surprise for Dean, with Clapton backing her. She's got a good voice and has sung with her father before.

It was a delightful family wedding and with Clapton playing at the reception, you couldn't have found a better wedding singer anywhere in the world."

So cool! We wish we could have been there to see that! And what a sweet dad to perform at his daughter's wedding. It seems like they have a wonderful relationship.

Eric Clapton's Guitars Sell For Millions Of $$$ At Auction!

eric clapton sells guitars for millions

And we thought Stephen Colbert's self-portrait sold for a lot of money…

At a Bonhams New York auction yesterday, Eric Clapton's 75 guitars and 55 amps sold for a total of $2.15 million! WOW!

Best part about it? The proceeds are going to benefit "a drug and alcohol treatment center Clapton founded in the West Indies."

As a recovered addict himself, Clapton formed nonprofit Crossroads Centre in Antigua in '98 in an effort to give back.

Good for you, Eric! This is a wonderful gesture! You've gained some serious points in our book for this one.

We still can't get over that number! $2.15 million! Fantastic!

How much would U pay for an Eric Clapton guitar?
