Hendrix was on a level playing field with all the other musicians who took PEDs.

The "level playing field" argument has been completely discredited. How will we ever know who was really the greatest guitar player of that era ? Even Andre Segovia was caught taking cold medication before a performance once.
Their music was not really as good as it sounds. :unbelievable:

I get the point, but it's impossible to completely seperate them. Had he not doped no doubt we wouldn't be talking about him, complimenting his style etc, and there would be no tribute stages (the irony).

In reality each one of them tried to keep up with their competition so that maybe they can keep their job for next years contract. You guys keep forgetting that pro cycling is a job that a cyclist makes his living at it. They do not ride for fun. It's not fun and games. It may seem that way but it really is not.



It's a job and sport. It cannot sensibly be the former without being the latter. And sport is meaningless without rules.
