    I looked! I did not find a thread with this, or "sample," or "clip" or anything that matched what I am asking about...

    Name a song, and maybe give an example of a song that includes a passage from the great Jimi Hendrix. I was shocked... SHOCKED! ...To hear Right Said Fred's "Too Sexy" in a store the other day. The thing that shocked me most was the bit of "Third Stone..." at 1:12.

    Paul McCartney. The live version of "Let Me Roll It" on "Good Evening New York City" includes a passage from "Foxy Lady". I think it is a tribute to Hendrix. It has been a part of his live repertoire for the last ten years.

    I was listening to Santana's Lotus last night and definitely noticed a few Hendrix nods in there, including a reference to "Third Stone", though I can't recall which track specifically featured that.

    Bill Kirchen quotes Hendrix during the massive medley featured in live versions of "Hot Rod Lincoln." A great example is on his early 2000's album Hot Rod Lincoln Live. Check it out (on YouTube?) - Kirchen is amazing.
