    Great track! Heard Hendrix' version first, but I'm beginimng to prefer Dylan's version. Especially the version from Dylan's Budokan album.

    Heard Dylan play this live about 4 years ago. They did the Hendrix take on it, even with the distorted guitar solos and all. It was a awesome mash up.

    Umm, this isn't Bob Dylan, and this isn't "All Along the Watchtower".

    No it is not El Salvador7.............. listen to PM on his records and you will notice he is OK when belting it out, but wobbles when trying low slow notes as he cant hold them. Like so many 'singers', techno helps him out. Because they dont know breath control and use of diaphragm etc. JH could, of course, play his guitar.........

    Saying Paul McCartney couldn't sing is like saying Jimi Hendrix couldn't play guitar.

    Are we surprised re Ed Sheran? And no, MrLynk, not saying McCartney could sing, just saying that, like BD, he cant.
