I definitely think they belong here in either proto-prog or psychedelic rock.
I want to hear your opinions on this matter

No, they would not fit under the proto-prog definitions or the prog-related.

Hendrix is not prog nor will he ever be.

He is a blues rock musician. Not a prog musician.

He influenced too many people to show him directly influencing prog.

This was discussed a while back (it was more than 6 months ago - I think)

No. Have respect for other genres. Psychedelic bands like The Grateful Dead and Hendrix are not, and never were prog. I already take issue with the Doors and the Who being here. The late 60s was a messed up time and everybody influenced everybody else. Not everybody needs to be here.

No. But this is just a personal opinion ... the objective criteria to tell non-prog psychedelic apart from prog psychedelic still elude me.

Experience's third album was definitely progressive, at least in a more literal meaning of the word. The site should acknowledge this contribution somehow, maybe an essay on the documents page should do justice.

I think very soon the owners of this site will have to decide if they stay prog or go all the way cover all the rock field.
Jefferson Airplane, BS & T, DOORS, the Who, Led Zep and other bands never mentioned before in a prog conversation have been added to this site and i think the thin line separating the 2 genres  is becoming very blurry now.
If you have Jefferson airplane, why not Grateful Dead, Quicksilver messenger service, Moby Grape or other rock-stoned californian bands?
Blood Sweat & tears? why not Chicago, Malo or Al Kooper solo?
 
The moment of truth will come soon.Confused

Jimi Hendrix did tour with Pink Floyd, which lends him some credibility.

However...if Jimi Hendrix was included, then that could open the flood gates for all of the random (great) guitarists in the world (Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, etc.).

And Hendrix is more bluesy than nearly any progressive rock is (it's already been established that he plays *the blues*, and of course we can't forget he was making forays into funk), and his lyrics are not very progressive either.

The "Jimi Henrix Question" is a confusing one.

Jeff''s already here - Clapton is the only ex-Yardbird not to have made it into the PA, but that still does not mean that Hendrix should be included.

No, hell no.
He is a classic rock guitarist, a blues player.
He is great, not prog.

what's confusing about HELL NO!!! LOL

btw...have you listened to Jeff Beck? Of course he is great... but not random at all... he was a good inclusion here.
