The 10 Best Covers of Jimi Hendrix Songs
We pick the 10 best covers of Jimi Hendrix songs, featuring SRV, Jeff Beck and The Cure.
04. Red Hot Chili Peppers, "Fire"
Moreso than guitar chops, energy is essential to a good Hendrix cover, and energy is something the Chili Peppers had in spades back in the mid-'80s.
While the Chilis' cover of "Fire" appeared on their 1989 album Mother's Milk — their first album to feature John Frusciante — the guitar playing on "Fire" is unmistakably that of Hilel Slovak. While it took until the end of the '80s for their version of "Fire" to be released, the band were playing the song live as early an 1983.
