12 Robin Trower

Why does trower get so overlooked...my god the man has been playing live for about 4 decades and doesn't even have a picture here...what a travesty

13 Randy California

The founder of "Spirit" was given his name by Hendrix himself, when two of his band members were both named "Randy".

RIP Randy.
Many fans may not know that Randy died a hero, saving his son from drowning in heavy Hawaiian surf, but Randy did not make it out.

14 Lenny Kravitz Lenny Kravitz Leonard Albert "Lenny" Kravitz is an American singer, songwriter, actor and record producer, whose "retro" style incorporates elements of rock, blues, soul, R&B, funk, jazz, reggae, hard rock, psychedelic, pop, folk, and ballads.

Are You Gonna Go My Way is a fantastic Hendrix-influenced song. The riff is so much like a Jimi riff and the "But what I really want to know is..." part, he sounds almost like he's Hendrix's twin on that part. - BrianScott01

15 Eric Clapton Eric Clapton Eric Patrick Clapton is an English rock and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream. He has also been a member of Derek and the Dominos.

More like a friend and kindred spirit, but Hendrix definitely influenced him, plus EC may be the only guitarist that Jimi considered a "peer", if not necessarily an equal.

16 Eric Johnson Eric Johnson Eric Johnson (born August 17, 1954) is an American guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist from Austin, Texas. Best known for his electric guitar skills, Johnson is also a highly proficient acoustic, lap steel, resonator, and bass guitarist as well as an accomplished pianist and vocalist.
