Hendrix doesn't hold a candle to Stevie.
Come on, admit it.

The question cannot be answered because "best" is a relative term. I, personally, prefer Stevie's style over Hendrix's. This doesn't mean I don't like Hendrix. This doesn't mean I like Blues either. In fact, it bores me tremendously. If I had to pick a favorite, I'd sort through all the boring leads and riffs and probably pull Stevie out of the barrel.
I'm sorry you don't agree. Nor do I care.

But Hendrix is a simpleton blues player. That doesn't make him bad, just simple. Stevie, while a blues player as well, is not so simple. I am speaking about technique, not acid dipped head-bands and tie-dye t-shirts. 75% of Hendrix is sensationalism. He is, pardon me for saying, not a guitarist's guitarist. Neither is Stevie, for that matter, but he is a more dexterious player.
Do either of you play guitar?
yesDo you know the difference between Allan Holdsworth and Angus Young?
Yes, and I think Di Meola is an uninteresting technician. Page rocks. Ever hear how fucking weird those solos on In through the Out Door are?Between Al Di Meola and Jimmy Page?
Joe Pass and Ted Nuget?YeeeesFINALLY one we agree one. McLaughlin is a fucking sorcerer, man! Clapton is the most overrated musician in history. Consider that on his supposedly greatest album the Derek and the Dominoes Layla and Other Lovesongs, the best playing is done by Duane Allman (god rest his redneck soul)John McLaughlin and Eric Clapton?well gee thank you. Can I have My allowance now dad?If you do, then you are half way there."Greatest" blues break is not saying much, and hardly worthy of an opinion. If you had asked me this ten years ago, I'd be all excited.
When I discovered jazz fusion and progressive rock, "blues" and "rock and roll" became a thing of the past.
