    No offence, but i hate the live versions of this. It sounds like me playing guitar, and i suck. Don´t get me wrong, i love Jimi, but the live versions sound really shitty, and i got good quality recordings, it isnt that.

    Jimi Hendrix was a patriot who loved America...What he *hated* was when anyone interpreted his version of The Star Spangled Banner (his dress, hairstyle, politics etc...) as ANYTHING less than it was - an expression of his love and patriotism for The United States of America.

    TrixRabbi, listen to Machine Gun, that's entirely anti-war, I think his beliefs changed over time. Star Spangled Banner in that way was done as support for his country, not necessiarly the war.

    i thought he played this song, so i heard, to give the good people at woodstock something nice to wake up to.

    Actually - Jimi's real politics aren't known. When he was with hippies he would say he hates the war and stuff. When he was with conservative friends he would say he supports the war. No one really knows his true political beliefs. The reason he did it at Woodstock was because the band origianlly scheduled to play first that day didn't show and Jimi went on first - Therefore having to play it.

    Jimi played this song as a protest to the Vietnam war, ain't that right?
